“I was the Plaintiff in a lawsuit involving misrepresentations in a real estate deal and David was opposing counsel on the case. David was a very tenacious, methodical, effective and professional adversary. David turned out to be the tactician and the personality I wished I had hired to represent me in that case. Unfortunately, I have hired more than my share of lawyers in my life. David will be my first call the next time I need one. If you find yourself entering or already in the trenches of litigation, you want to be shoulder-to-shoulder with this guy.”
Skip Cummins
“I found myself in a complex commercial dispute requiring the services of a professional lawyer. After many inquiries, I chose David based on his reputation for honesty, integrity and superior work ethic. David proved to me to be competent, diligent, kind, and humorous, with integrity second to none. He promptly returned my phone calls, explained legal issues clearly and placed my interests above his own. David is a genuinely nice person, an exceptional lawyer and I highly recommend his services to anyone.”

“I have been in business for almost 35 years and have had the opportunity to work with many attorneys in complicated, complex, contractual negotiations and dispute resolution. I am pleased to offer this written testimonial as to the ability of David Gottfried, who has been our counsel for almost ten years. I can, I have, and I will continue to unequivocally recommend David to anyone in need of sound, logical legal advice in the area of business law and/or contract negotiations or disputes. While David has been extremely helpful in assisting us with disputes and finding creative ways to deal with others, who at times have chosen not to honor their contractual obligations; above and beyond that, is his ability to assist us in deciding which of these disputes to pursue and which to avoid in order to preserve our valuable resources of time and money. To put it bluntly, sometimes winning isn’t winning. Some of the best advice we have received from David has been to forego litigation and to remain focused on what we do best, running our businesses and making money. David’s ability to bring reason and logic to an issue, coupled with sound business advice and transactional experience have proven to be invaluable over the years. You would be well served to have David Gottfried as part of your professional team.”

Everyone was intelligent, professional, and friendly and I got the feeling everyone really cared about the outcome of my case. You've created a warm, family-like office, without sacrificing professionalism or results, which is something that's very hard to do. Keep up the good work.”

“I have been using the services of The Gottfried Firm for about four years. David, and his associates, Michael Jurgens and Megan Alexander, have done excellent work for me and my companies by helping me negotiate several commercial leases, real estate acquisitions, and they have represented me and my companies in several lawsuits. One of the lawsuits resulted in a million dollar judgment in my favor. In another case, The Gottfried Firm was able to get a receiver appointed for the Defendants and David was able to obtain several contempt rulings against the individual Defendant, which included jail time sentences. I continue to use the services of The Gottfried Firm and would recommend them highly.”
