David A. Schechet


David Schechet received the highest grade in his class in civil procedure and graduated with highest honors—the Order of the Coif—and was a Fellow in Law and Economics at U.C.L.A. Law School and the U.C.L.A. Anderson School of Management. Add to this his 35 years of experience, and you can have an attorney that has the talent, training, and experience to quickly and keenly zero in on your issue and help find solutions.

In the fields of estate planning/administration and probate, the above assets can lead not only to a streamlined process and competitive fees, but greater belief and confidence that the best path to reaching your goals will be taken.

As to the fields of litigation and mediation, it has never ceased to amaze him how much time, effort, money, and negative emotions are wasted. The great majority of cases can be resolved early in the litigation process. He likes to tell the parties that it is much better for the money to remain in their pockets than line those of their attorneys. This point is poignantly made by reference to the mural that existed in the U.C.L.A. Law Library of a prize dairy cow, with one person pulling the head, another the tail, and a third milking the cow. The caption was "LAWYER." Enough said! The above-mentioned personal assets and philosophy of always looking for a way to resolve disputes early, gives you a significantly improved chance of resolving a dispute quickly and relatively inexpensively, before the costs begin to balloon beyond your ability to pay.

When not working, David likes to spend time with his wife, their five children, and their pets. He also enjoys playing tennis, jogging, and reading.
