E.D. “Buddy” David


The holiday season and the New Year is a time for me to count my blessings. I take pride and joy in the confidence and trust so many people have in me to do the right thing and to make a bad thing better.

My favorite movie is The Princess Bride, which, among other things, teaches that there is a big difference between being dead and being mostly dead.

I am most grateful for my wife, my three boys, the people my boys have become, the women my boys have chosen and the wonderful families my sons and daughters have built.

Three things that inspire me are, with apologies to Superman, “truth, justice and the American way.”

The one object I will always have in my office is the desk of Frank Blechman, my father-in-law, and the most perfect man I ever knew.

The most likeable quality in a person is his or her acceptance of responsibility.

One of the best things about the holiday season is eight days of presents, with more thrown in for Christmas.

If I could be anyone else for a day, I would be a better me.

The first rule of being a lawyer is to give sound advice and to know when you know what you don’t know.

I find the job of being a grandparent to be the best job in the world.

Something that most people probably do not know about me is
that I am a crier.

I have always been good at getting to the bottom line of an issue quickly and helping to find a solution that all parties can live with.

Last but not least, remember, again with apologies, this time to Kenny Rogers, “you have to know when to hold ’em, when to fold ’em and when to get up and walk away.”
