David Gearing, Adam McKibben, and the rest of the team did an excellent job handling my contentious custody modification case. David was consistently two steps ahead of the process and proactively managed issues before they arose. The team was responsive and available at all times, always professional, and negotiated a reasonable settlement in a scenario that I was sure was going to result in an ugly and expensive trial.  David was an excellent advocate, and more importantly, put his experience to work securing a settlement that had my family’s best interests at heart
