About me

My name is Dave Falvey. I'm a bankruptcy attorney for Connecticut and more specifically for the New London County area. I have been successfully practicing for approximately 30 years and have helped thousands of clients get their finances back on track. 


Not only am I a bankruptcy specialist, but I also offer decent alternatives to bankruptcy with a vast knowledge of debt management and debt consolidation solutions. My mission is to provide you with an opportunity to learn the pros and cons regarding the various strategies in settling your debts so you can be more aware of your options and choose the best strategy that works for you and your family. 


I provide my clients with not only debt relief and credit repair services, but I also educated them in order to help them build new habits that will help you become more financially focused on your income and expenses. 


My mission is to assist clients through a holistic approach of budgeting and using the Federal Credit Reporting Act to improve their credit scores.
