David Sayward helped me through a very hard time in my life! He is a compassionate and caring man. Not only did he get me a settlement he did it with such confident. David was very thorough and meticulous with every aspect of our case. I was very proud to have him on my side! His team was on call throughout my mediation period. Ali, Davids secretary was amazing always keeping me updated the closer we got. I highly recommend David Sayward and his team to help you through your hardships. Amy L.read more

These lawyers (David Sayward & Anthony Muir) guided me through one of the hardest times in my life. David is one of the most genuine and honest men i have met. The staff ( Ali & Marie) are the glue to the entire place. I would recommend this firm to everyone. They are fair on fees and actually guide you for your best interest not theirs.read more

David Sayward and Anthony Muir supported us through a difficult guardianship process and were very knowledgeable and empathetic during the painful process. We were able to obtain guardianship and during the court process it appeared that the judge also had respect for them both professionally. There was never a time that they were not available to us. It was also greatly appreciated that Marie was always very kind and responsive to any requests I had.read more

David W Sayward was very attentive and caring during a difficult time. I was needing legal advice and needed to file paperwork with the courts ASAP and he and his assistant Allie came through!! I will be honest with you I just googled family lawyers in Salem and I just choose this law firm and I am so glad I choose this one! I walked in the day before New Years Eve and David was the only one in the office and he took the time to sit down and talk with me. Even texted me that evening and called me on New Years Day. I was quoted a retainer fee and because of how fast and efficient he was I received almost half of the retainer back. I would highly recommend David!read more
