The DeGroot Law Firm, PLLC

Jun 15, 2015

David recently proved essential to our success in a very complicated commercial litigation involving over $6 million in claims. He was able to analyze the financial relationship between multiple companies on both sides of the dispute, distill hundreds of transactions over multiple years into understandable summaries, and provided expert testimony that was clear to both the attorneys and the courts. On the stand, in particular, he was convincing, authoritative, and showed an impressive command of the subject matter. David's ability to combine both his financial expertise and legal background to an analysis of the issues we faced proved to be one of the keys to our success in this case. It is not too much to say that if we had not had David Girault on our team, we would not have achieved the results the client was hoping for. Thank you, David, again, for your outstanding contributions to our efforts. I look forward to working with you in the future. David DeGroot
