We hired David Turney for our Series A funding round. David is the ideal corporate lawyer, knowledgeable but commercial. He understood what we wanted out of the deal and fought for the right points. I particularly liked the fact that David avoided over lawyering things and helped us get it done quickly. His quote was roughly half of what the larger firms quoted us (lower overheads), so we really got big firm quality for small firm rates. Recommended!

David has been excellent - actually more than excellent. He has been super responsive and has nudged along myself an others involved in the process (our accountants have been terrible and will be fired as soon as we are done - so he has had to put up with a lot!)

What I can say about our experience with David is that it was very positive. David was very pleasant to do business with. He was quick with replying to emails and offered a free consultation to find out what exactly we needed. He was clear with his explanations and helped us to decide what exactly we required. When we decided for him, he overdelivered, on time, and the costs were exactly as agreed beforehand.

David and I spoke immediately after our introduction by Lexoo and I found him to be personable, helpful and a breath of fresh air. He was not stuffy or condescending, was up front about the way Avery Law LLP operates and was clear and fair with the firm's pricing policy. Moreover, the job was turned around quickly, accurately and with value added. I would definitely use Avery Law again and was impressed with every aspect of my dealings with the practice.

Fantastic find, I have already recommended him to several friends, I believe one has asked for his help. The best thing about him? he REPLIES within hours! and tells you in advance the costs he will incur.
