When a lawyer needs a lawyer, David is the one to call.An eminent authority on disciplinary complaints, malpractice suits, and the panoply of disputes between lawyers, their firms, and their clients, David’s credentials include a three-year term as chair of the New York City Bar Association’s prestigious Professional Responsibility Committee. He has also served on the state level, with the New York State Bar Association’s Committee on Standards of Attorney Conduct (COSAC). These committees are at the vanguard of the legal ethics field, studying and recommending changes to rules and procedures that directly affect the practice of law.David’s own practice reflects this experience. He represents lawyers and firms wherever the Rules of Professional Conduct come into play — from partnership disputes to privilege and confidentiality issues — from conflicts of interest to bar admission problems. He defends clients in disciplinary matters, disqualification motions and other court matters.David’s approach to legal ethics — a field known for its rigidity, is to keep an open mind. He prefers to think through his client’s entire situation, looking for other — possibly better — options than what is immediately evident.For his clients — those lawyers and firms that may have strayed from the rules, thereby putting their careers and businesses at risk — David’s thorough and carefully considered approach provides the guidance that puts those clients on the right track.
