Summary

After nine interesting years with the Law Office of David C. Wells, P.C. and its predecessors, I am ready to move on to life's next adventure. I have handled litigation in family, commercial, consumer, and personal injury matters. I have conducted around 40 trials in family, landlord/tenant, business, and immigration cases. I have managed the legal aspects of the formation of dozens of small businesses. I helped form a nonprofit animal welfare organization.

Now I am ready to use these skills to help another business or nonprofit.
