James M. (Jim) Spiller told David, “If you’re going to practice in a small town, you need to know a lot about a lot. You need to try to be able handle whatever problems walk through the door.” David took those words to heart, striving to competently and successfully represent his clients in virtually whatever dispute or claim that they may have.
