Partner Dave Stern was featured in the May edition of Suburban Life magazine. “The Ultimate Competitor” profiles Dave’s drive to succeed for his clients and how lessons learned as a Division 1 pitcher for the University of Delaware influence his practice.
“Pitching in front of crowds and being the center of attention—that has served me well in being able to stand up in front of a courtroom: having no trouble, no nervous energy, just being able to stand in front of a judge and argue my case,” Dave said. “When I represent somebody, oftentimes that person is in a very tough spot. What they get from me is the ultimate competitor.”
Dave’s also discussed his dedication to treating every client’s case with a personalized touch and taking a holistic view of his or her situation.
“It’s more than just ‘This is the law in your case and what I think is going to happen,’” Dave said. “It’s also, ‘Let’s talk about the other things you have going on here in your life and [then go about] making decisions. What does your family need? Are the kids going to college?’ There’s so much that we talk about before we make big decisions in cases, that sometimes it kind of trickles over into just a coaching session.”
