He does not practice divorce law as an attorney, focusing instead on facilitating resolution for couples whether or not they are represented by divorce counsel themselves. With a math and finance concentration in his undergraduate work and almost two decades of experience counseling businesses of all sizes, he is comfortable helping couples unravel even the most complex financial affairs. Regardless of the parents’ financial situation, David appreciates well the significant impact failed relationships have on the children involved and how a successfully negotiated parenting plan is priceless.
