With his end goal in mind, David never backs down from the difficult cases.
One of the main reasons David wanted to become an attorney was because the profession requires sharp analytical, reasoning, and critical thinking skills – all traits that David naturally possesses. From the moment he receives a new matter, he breaks it down into four steps: identify the facts at hand, examine the underlying legal issues, create ways to address the issues, and execute the plan. By following these simple steps, he consistently achieves a thorough recovery strategy that focuses on obtaining favorable results for his clients.
Working primarily with loan workout specialists and collection managers, David is very in tune with their day-to-day, and understands just how stressful their world can be. They are frequently faced with difficult borrowers who are either non-responsive or non-cooperative to requests for payment. When they enlist the assistance of David, they find solace in his ability to remove their stress by taking it on as his own - so they can tend to their other paying consumers.
When matters involve non-cooperative borrowers, David is not easily intimidated. He once represented a client that extended a loan for a luxury vehicle. It was soon revealed that the borrower had ill intentions of defrauding the bank, as a check that was issued as payment on the loan was drawn on a non-existent Federal Reserve account. The bank took steps to recover the vehicle, but was threatened physical harm to anyone who entered the property. Not willing to accept this type of behavior, David quickly filed suit and obtained a judgment that specifically required the vehicle be surrendered. When the borrower still refused, David advocated once again for his client, requesting the court issue a show-cause order for violation of the court’s order. After the court threatened to sanction the borrower, the vehicle was ultimately surrendered to his client.
Cooking is David’s way of decompressing after a long day at the office. He looks forward to spending quality time with his family in the kitchen and around the dinner table every night.
