Posted by Nancy
I had consulted with other lawyers during my search for an attorney. I felt comfortable hiring Mr. Bliven. He was able to answer all my questions and was honest. I was going through a difficult time financially. Mr. Bliven made adjustments to my bill and worked out a payment plan when I otherwise couldn't have afford a lawyer. I had to commute from the Bronx to court in Brooklyn which was hard for me financially. Mr. Bliven was willing to drive me to and from court in Brooklyn which I greatly appreciated. I am very satisfied with his services. I highly recommend Mr. Bliven.

Mr. Bliven is a true professional and was very helpful during my divorce process . He managed to keep me fully informed every step of the way. His rates were reasonable for a lawyer of his level. I would highly recommend him for any family related issues.

Mr Bliven was knowlegable. Informative and an incredible strategist. He used all of my legal rights to defend me in my case and was extremely professional to work with. I can't thank him enough for his ability to use our rights as law abiding citizens and to get the job done. David consulted with me on all motions before revealing them to the court or to any other parties. For this I thank him for and am gratefull for his dlilgence in representation.

He was absolutely one of the worst paid lawyers that I've retained. He's consistently late or sick. He charges you for email inboxes, instead of on aggressive and assertive representation in the court. He provided me with substandard representation. In the end I paid thousands of dollars on him receiving emails, and him sending out nonsense subpoena when it was never used, and his primary intention was to get me a standard 6-12 month ACD, when I clearly informed him that Trial is where I intend to take this case.Don't bother retain this legal aid attorney/ private attorney who disguises himself as a knowledgeable former ACS attorney. The worst attorney can get you an ACD for free. Word of advice to those seeking a family lawyer is spend your money where it will work for you, and clearly it won't work for you when hiring David Bliven.

He always arrives late to court hearings, unprepared, and doesn't wholeheartedly advocate for what you want as a client. He doesn't listen to his clients wishes. He cowards down when he comes across a hostile Judge. He's not an assertive lawyer. He gives a good presentation upon getting your retainer, but his actions differ in the court room.

I found Mr. Bliven through AVVO. I have never hired an attorney and didn’t know where to start. Mr. Bliven was down to earth and very approachable. I hired Mr. Bliven for a Child Support matter because of his knowledge and honestly. During the hearing Mr. Bliven picked apart the opposing Lawyer. He got my case dismissed and saved me thousands in child Support. I couldn’t have been more please with his work. I even received a refund with a detailed Invoice for charges.
I Highly recommend Mr. Bliven .

David is extremely knownledgeable about what he does & takes the time to explain everything you need to know. The way I found David was on a website were I gave my circumstances and he picked my case which said to me that someting about my particular situation he has dealt with on a level that he gets especially after I sat down with him to fully explain. He read the facts of what I needed: going through a seperation & had to establish custody along with some other nauances that were delicate. It was a stressfully time! but he was fully commited to my situation. I felt comfortable with David from day one!! He is a trustworthy individual and deserves trustworthy clients!!! - I would recommend David in a minute!! .but I really don't want to share!! - Thanks David for all that you have done and continue to do for my family!

Hands down best family lawyer in this era. Not only does he know the law but he thinks like a father and reacts like a calm giant in the court room. Follow what he says exactly to the point and he will win the ball game for you. Let him do the talking and fighting and you won't be disappointed. He personally fought and put my son back with me and made the courts and other forces at work give me my parental rights. Getting Bliven was a life changer.
