Professionalism, Expertise, and Genuine Commitment

To Whom It May Concern, I am writing this letter to highly recommend Attorney David Katz based on my professional experience working with him on a legal case involving a floor covering failure. As a certified flooring consultant/inspector, I was commissioned by a consumer to assess the issue and provide expert analysis. Upon completing my assessment and findings, I was referred to Attorney David Katz, who was representing my client in this matter. Initially, I must admit I have reservations about working with attorneys in general. However, after speaking with Mr. Katz and reviewing the case with him, I was genuinely impressed by his dedication and genuine concern for the project. Throughout our collaboration, Attorney Katz demonstrated a high level of professionalism, expertise, and a genuine commitment to achieving the best possible outcome for our client. We had several productive phone conversations discussing the details of the case, and when it became necessary, we met in person with all parties involved at the site in question on multiple occasions, which is rare in legal matters. What stood out to me the most was Attorney Katz's meticulous approach and diligence in handling the case. Despite my initial skepticism towards attorneys, I found Attorney Katz to be a reliable and trustworthy partner in navigating the legal aspects of the floor covering failure issue at hand. I have since referred a few of my clients to Attorney Katz, which is not something I do lightly. However, based on my experience and confidence in his methodology and dedication, I have no hesitation in recommending him to others seeking legal representation in similar matters. In conclusion, I believe Attorney David Katz's professionalism, expertise, and genuine concern make him an exceptional attorney to work with. I am grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with him and would not hesitate to do so again in the future. Sincerely,
-John Paul Viveiros

Smart, Professional, Experienced

I am in-house counsel for a large California company that was recently sued in Massachusetts. The plaintiff's claim involved a legal principle common in the Commonwealth but unfamiliar to me. In my research of that principle, I came across an article published by David. It was clear and concise, and evidenced an excellent understanding of the subject matter. I called David to engage him as my local counsel in the litigation. I was very fortunate to have made that decision. Within mere weeks, the action was dismissed. David is very smart, professional, experienced in local law and practice, responsive, and has very strong judgment and common sense. I recommend him without reservation.

Unreservedly Endorse Attorney Katz to Other Financial Institutions

I am General Counsel for an equipment finance subsidiary of a national bank. I retained David as local counsel in a multi-jurisdictional matter relating to a large lease portfolio purchase in which the lease-originating vendor defaulted in required service and numerous lessees stopped making payments. David provided timely, clear and focused counsel in some of the more pivotal cases we faced. David's successful strategy and tactics were emulated by several of our other local counsel. David worked well within our team, which was comprised of attorneys from different firms and regions, some being rather difficult personalities. I would certainly retain David for the next matter we have in his region and I unreservedly endorse him to other financial institutions.

An attentive professional persuasive client advocate

In the thirty years during which David Katz was a trial lawyer and I was a judge in the MA Trial Court and a professional arbitrator, I observed his conduct on numerous cases. My records indicate that his first trial before me was in 1986. His most recent case was in Sept 2013. I found him to be fully attentive to the case and its consequences, punctual in all of his filings, prepared on the evidence and the law, persuasive in his presentation and professional in his conduct with clients, jurors, and judges. His preparedness extended not only to the presentation of evidence but also to the drafting of documents, memoranda with supporting citations and copies of opinions to facilitate the judges' decision. I would unqualifiedly recommend David Katz to any potential litigant.
