- Richard Bae, Managing Member

David Gibson did an excellent job in handing my case. He is always available to answer any questions. He will break down the law to you in non-legal terms and always protect you. He will take the stress of any legal issue away from you so you can focus on what matters while he gets you the results you are looking for. I could not be more pleased with Judge Gibson. When a legal issue arose for my brother, I referred him directly to Judge Gibson.

- Mo, Computer Programer

David is never too busy to take my call, or returns my calls quickly. He always makes us feel that we are important to him and that our issues are his issues. He also has the unique ability to see through all the details to get to the heart of the matter, then proposes a reasonable course of action for resolution. His sage counsel has saved us many thousands of dollars over the years. We consider him not only a friend, but an integral part of our business.

David has been my business lawyer for about ten years now and has always produced excellent work. I am grateful for his extensive knowledge, honesty, and integrity. He has always been very attentive, quick to respond, and professional. I believe he is a wonderful advocate for his clients, and it is with utmost confidence that I strongly recommend David to anyone I meet.

David was what we needed to help resolve our legal issues. He is one of the brightest and smartest attorneys I have dealt with in Dallas Fort Worth I recommend him to every one.
