As illustrated through the testimonials and successful outcomes of his clients, David prides himself in extensively evaluating the strength of an employee’s legal claims and providing straightforward, practical advice.
David has been recognized by his peers as a leader in employment law. Since 2017, Thomson Reuters has selected David for its Super Lawyers® designation. As part of this selection process, candidates are evaluated across twelve indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. In total, 5% of Massachusetts attorneys receive the Super Lawyers® accolade. Similarly, in 2018, Martindale-Hubbell selected David for its highest peer review rating standard of AV Preeminent®. According to Martindale, approximately 10% of all attorneys hold this designation, which signifies the highest level of legal knowledge, communication skills, and ethical standards.
While such designations may indicate that an attorney garners a certain level of respect from his or her peers, the search for a lawyer who will effectively advocate your interests should not begin or end with this designation. We encourage individuals to take a comprehensive approach by meeting with an employment attorney to discuss, in depth, the strengths (and possible weaknesses) of a potential claim as well as the strategy for asserting your rights.
