“A recommendation came from a friend of mine who practices law mostly in San Jose. While attending a court case in Santa Rosa, he observed David Gardner in court and thought highly enough of him to refer me to him. We decided to use his services which were fairly priced and very professional. What really set him aside a being a great guy was even though he was dealing with recovering from a leg injury and surgery, he went out of his way to make my wife and I comfortable in all our dealings with him.”
