Experienced with Juvenile and Family law representing the rights of children. That is why Dave is endorsed by Sheriff Craig Roberts, three retired sheriffs, and six police chiefs.

COMMUNITY ACTION

Dave is a nationally recognized leader in forming partnerships with the community, businesses and law enforcement to reduce crime and improve neighborhoods by combining civil and criminal law to prosecute meth dealers and close drug houses.
