Truly exceptional.  While creating a complex group LLC, David was a rare find.  After working on a project with him for almost one year, I am so grateful to have found him.  David is an incredible asset for one person, but it was his brilliant, balanced, nuanced tone and depth of knowledge that won everyone over. He was able to unite various opinions and ideas into one cohesive document which was a rare skill.  He was also an unusually skilled writer which helped immensely.  He was wise, patient, financially fair, gave very quick responses, incredibly smart and made himself available on weekends if time sensitive. I couldn’t have asked for a more positive legal experience. – Kim H., Petaluma, CA (Yelp Review)

Thank you again for all your help and fantastic advice as I was getting started. — Danielle Kugell, CEO, Digital Handiwork

David was amazing!! I emailed him to have him review a commercial lease I was about to sign. He emailed within a couple hours with his flat rate which was more than fair. Two days later I was completely overwhelmed with his detailed notes and suggestions. Definitely more than I was expecting. He walked me through the whole thing though. I couldn’t be happier with his service. Thank you David!!- Derek N., San Francisco, CA

I found the other reviews to be right on. David was prompt, available and very helpful to me. He ended up referring me to a local specialist, but I was very pleased with his knowledge and professionalism. I’d recommend him.– April A, Berkeley, CA

All of this occurred during our initial conversation. If you have a legal question, I would give David a call.– Sara T., San Francisco, CA

Here’s what David did for us: 1) Debunked all the false advice we have heard. 2) Gave us all the explanation we needed, and then some, even when we didn’t ask. 3) Broke down many, various scenarios we may find ourselves in within the next year of our business. This helped to forecast solutions to potential problems in the near future. 4) Didn’t hesitate to give straight answers to complex questions. 5) Made us laugh.– Shawn C., San Francisco, CA

I feel that my family is in a much more educated place from which to move forward. Thank you David!– Dylan O., Sausalito, CA

David is our attorney and he has done a great job dealing with the very unusual situations that start-ups get themselves into. He is forward thinking – he tries to think of problems before they arrive and prepares us well for actions we need to take and let’s us know what steps we do not need to take at times.- Casey Ryan, Tickermine, Principal

He has given me plenty of good advice about my small business in Oakland. His knowledge base is extensive, from tax to business to corporate to real estate to intellectual property, as well as general probate matters.– Susan Royce, Royce Printing, Oakland

In spite of the fact that he became involved in the middle, he got quickly up to speed, and has significantly contributed to what looks likely to be a good mutually beneficial result among the parities. I would certainly recommend David to anyone needing quality advice or representation.– Sid J.

He comes across as an ethical and trustworthy professional. I needed a consultation and advise on a possible short sale transaction. I felt educated but not patronized. He was very helpful and even suggested that it wasn’t necessary for me to hire him but an enrolled agent was really what I needed with less the cost.– T.T., Mountain View, CA

During our meeting, he was able to guide me in the appropriate direction for my needs, and he promptly followed up with an email to check in post-meeting.

I highly recommend him.– Ed N., San Francisco, CA

He even took the time to read an article i had asked about – before we even formally engaged him.

I look forward to working with him more.– Alan V., Fremont, CA

He is a superb attorney and a valuable part of our team.- Casey Ryan, Tickermine

David is awesome in the sense that he cares enough to explain to you any/all questions you have regarding accounting and taxes. He’s definitely a guy you want to work with if you need help for accounting purposes specific to a company. He’s great and I’ll use him when needing more help with my startup!– Riz A., San Francisco

I love Yelp, but I have to confess that I have never written a review before. Very rarely has anything really impressed me enough to cause me to write a review. Until now. My real estate agent had suggested I speak to a lawyer concerning my rental property to seek legal guidance regarding possible implications of the latest federal acts that could affect the sale of the property.
I emailed David a short note on the situation and he replied within the week requesting that we setup a free consultation by phone. We agreed on a time for a quick phone call. During the consultation, he was very knowledgeable of current federal acts. He was also very thorough and reviewed the situation with me in multiple ways to ensure I understood the implications from various possible scenarios. Based on this positive experience, I would not only call on him again but I would also recommend him to anyone in need of tax or real estate legal help.– Khai N., San Francisco

Thanks David. Your advice was sensible, expert, and timely!– Matt H., San Bruno, CA

David was great in assisting me and my partner with our upcoming apartment building purchase; specifically issues relating to RDP’s and property ownership. Highly recommended!!- Ian H. – San Francisco, CA

David was a little busy at first so it took a call to remind him that I had sent an email earlier, but once I left a message, he emailed me back right away and we set up a time to talk on the phone. Get this – on a Sunday of the Big Game. “Oh, right, just like that other lawyer who took the time out of his weekend to do a free consultation,” said no one ever. I had a barrage of questions, all of which David competently advised me on, from what I can tell. They involved W2s, W9s, 1099s, LLC protection and benefits, DMCA, getting taxed as an S-corp, paying yourself in a single member LLC, dealing with accounting, and various strategies related to running a single member LLC. I got thorough answers to everything. Thank you, David, so far contacting you was probably the best advice I gave myself this year.- Artem R., San Francisco, CA

Mr. Herzog gave me some great counsel via e-mail and phone time. I am a small business owner in SF and needed some clear, cogent advise for an upcoming real estate review. 
While our time was limited, he dove straight into the issues and helped me sort out the fact from fiction, the current law from folk wisdom. He provided me with the confidence of my position, and things went smoothly after that. Thanks David and I would gladly work with you again!– Peter W., San Francisco, CA
