I have had the pleasure of working with some of the industry’s biggest players. Together we have worked hard to find solutions in the hospitality industry. I am pleased to have the the following testimonials provided by my clientele and peers. – Dave Waller, Legal Aspirin
- "David is the rare legal counselor with real world business acumen. He sees things from a perspective of "what will work?" instead of "what will generate bill-able hours".
In a very rare segment of luxury hospitality there are only a few names that can be counted on for accuracy and dependability when it comes to set up, rules and regulations and membership access of any sort of shared ownership at the 5-star level.
Dave is certainly in the top three of that list, if not at the very top. He takes the time to understand your client's needs, so he can better understand your needs.
I recommend Dave without reservation or hesitation. Ethically, strategically and professionally, you will be hard-pressed to find a better ally in business." Michael Aumock Director- Asia Pacific at 3rd Home

These publications are honored to give him a platform from which to speak (and teach) at any time!" Sharon Drechsler-Scott PR & Marketing Consultant
