Comments from David's clients
"I am always particularly impressed with David Hitchcock, who is now the head of the department. We have worked together on a number of real property related cases, which have proven to be factually and legally very complicated. He is simply brilliant to work with – he’s communicative, helpful and adds real value to the case. He’s also very good with clients."
