David Whitten is the best of the best. I can't say enough good things about my experience when dealing with him and his team, mainly Nadia Halum. I have never needed a lawyer before so the entire process was brand new to me, and intimidating to say the least. David made me feel at ease, he made me feel heard and most importantly, he made me feel protected when dealing with my legal issue. I felt safe and knew I could count on him which is a priceless feeling. He explained everything to me thoroughly and clearly and ensured I felt supported every step of the way.
