About David Holnagel

Encinitas Lawyer

Did you know that 95 percent of all lawsuits settle instead of going to trial? That’s a good thing. It means that most of the time, your problems can be resolved with as little disruption to your life as possible. Resolving disputes is a passion that I pursue with tenacity. Mediation is the best way to resolve many disputes.

I’ve been helping Californians resolve their legal problems since 1984 and have tried over 60 cases. Most of those trials were expensive propositions where I gained a lot of experience with all kinds of disputes, experience that enables me to give you an honest, fair evaluation of the merits of your case and what your best options are. I then use that experience to assist you and the person with which you have a dispute craft a resolution acceptable to both of you.

Whether your neighbor’s dog is keeping you up all night or you’re negotiating a lease and feel you’re getting a little over your head, or maybe you just got a nasty letter in the mail from an attorney and don’t know what to do, my mediation skills will help if you need an assist in resolving that dispute.

You might be able to resolve your problem through mediation or through other means. Regardless, my objective is always to reach the right resolution as soon as possible.

Being in the middle of a legal dispute is stressful. Let me take the stress out of it for you. It’s what I do.
