David Sherr has been a phenomenal lawyer to work with. He made me feel comfortable from day one with his personable demeanour and knowledge in family law.
David's great advice and support throughout my entire process was instrumental in the success of my case. I always felt that I was in good hands and that he had my best interests at heart.
David very carefully led me through a high conflict separation and peacefully settled the case. He is full of empathy, very accessible and patient.
