  • Ruth M Harvey

    I endorse this lawyer. I have had many cases with Dave over the years. He has all the knowledge, experience and skills a defense lawyer in workers' compensation needs - and yet is civil to those of us on the injured worker side. He is realistic about evaluating cases. These traits lead to his being respected by the employee-side bar - which in turn leads to resolution of many cases without the need to bill his client for unnecessary hearings. If I were an insurer, I'd hire him.

  • James Christian Carpenter

    I have great respect for Mr. Odlaug. I have had several cases with Mr. Odlaug. In my experience, his clients have never overpaid on a case. He also provide a well-reasoned approach to settlement which helps accelerate the settlement process. He identifies the key issues and bases negotiations on the law and the facts. He is thorough in his investigations and well-prepared for hearings.
