    I have known David Blanchard since he took my employment-related discrimination case in the spring of 2010, and it is with pleasure that I recommend him for his professional acumen, skills and qualities. David is a hard-working, fair, straightforward and knowledgeable attorney, with a wide range of outstanding legal skills and years of experience. It was a privilege to have had his service for almost three years of litigation and I would gladly recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney.

    I met David a couple years ago when faced with a tight deadline to sign a new employment contract that would jeopardize a patent I own. I submitted a question on the nachtlaw.com homepage around 8pm and David responded within minutes. We met in person the next morning to craft a formal counter to my employer at the time. David’s quick response proved very valuable over the next few months as negotiation turned into mediation, and litigation. Throughout I felt David represented my best interests.
