I e-mailed David and he responded in less than a half hour. I set up an appointment with him in 2 days. Excellent response time. I was looking for advice/information on a strategic foreclosure. David gathered information and explained the pros and cons of the process and made a recommendation based on my situation. He answered all my questions and left me feeling confident with my decision.
If i run into snags I would not hesitate to hire David.

I called around the Thanksgiving holiday for David and left a voicemail expecting a returned call when David returned to the office a few days later. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised by a returned phone call wihin a few hours from David's partner, Blake Iverson.
Blake was very helpful in providing advice on foreclosure and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Thanks again, Blake!

I would highly, highly recommend attorney David Friedman. Before finding David, I had meetings with two of the “big box” bankruptcy firms in the twin cities. During those consultations, I met with paralegals- NOT attorneys-and they refused to answer all of my questions until I paid them a retainer. How was I supposed to know if bankruptcy was the right option for me if they didn’t answer my questions?!
Needless to say, I was thrilled to find David and his firm. I met with both him and his partner during my initial consultation and they really did make me feel like a person with individual problems as opposed to just another client on a bankruptcy conveyor belt.
David took the time to fully explain the entire process. He completely answered all of my questions and really put me at ease. And he did so without pressuring me to hire his firm. Of course after talking to him, I signed on right away.
Anytime I would call or email he was very quick to respond, usually within the same day. He made the bankruptcy process easy and with very little stress to me. I also really appreciated the follow up 6 months later. He went over my post-bankruptcy credit reports with me and had prepared letters to send to the credit agencies to ensure my reports were accurate and my debt was shown as discharged.
I would not consider it fun to declare bankruptcy, but if you find it’s the best solution for you, believe me, you will want a lawyer like David. I know that I was not his only client, but he always made me feel like I was.

I had the opportunity to talk with David over the phone, regarding my possible foreclosure and refinance. I have been contemplating strategic defaulting on my home, but was worried of the legal ramifications. I finally made the decision to contact a lawyer. I emailed David, and he responded very quick, and set aside time the very next morning, free of charge, to answer all of my questions over the phone. He put me at ease, as he did not judge my situation, and provided answers to all the questions I asked. I did not feel rushed, and he explained everything in detail, over the 15 minutes we talked. David is very personable, and I would not hesitate to hire him, if the situation arises.

David Friedman, took the time to consult with me at no charge. He then followed up by emailing me more information on my case. I feel that David has gone above and beyond my expectations.

The thought of addressing my financial circumstances before going to Friedman Iverson was overwhelming, uncomfortable and extremely stressful. But, at my first meeting with them I knew instantly they could help me. David Friedman and Blake Iverson were not only extremely knowledgeable, but their kind nature put me at ease regarding every step of the process. Everything they told me ahead of time about the filing process was how it occurred. Every email or question I sent to them was answered promptly, thoroughly and with compassion. They were kind, informative and I never felt like any question I asked was not worth asking, no matter how big or little if may have seemed. I have absolutely no doubt that if you work with them they will put you at ease about the entire process. They helped me get back on the right financial course and I will be forever grateful for that. I would highly recommend David and Blake.

Had a meeting with Mr. Friedman last week concerning a debt collection issue and he was very helpful, kind, and patient... Although he did inform me had I met with him sooner than I did that I may no longer have owed this particular debt! Oops! Anyway, thanks for the free consoltation and getting some very needed and helpful information.

Before meeting with David Friedman we contacted several local and federal agencies and lawyers regarding our rights to cancel a contract (which a company was refusing to honor). David Friedman was the most helpful. He listened to our story and gave us a clear understanding of the law with several options in how to act. In the end the situation was settled without legal action, however, we felt confident and reassured with David and we probably wouldn't have been able to come to a positive outcome as quickly without his guidance.

What we most appreciated about David Freidman was the knowledge he had with our situation. He had a thorough answer to every question and he was able to explain things in a way we could fully understand. We were nervous going into the meeting because of our circumstances, but we found him to be both kind and helpful and we walked away feeling some hope. I would highly recommend him!

I had hemmed and hawed for years about filing bankruptcy. I knew I needed to, but didn't feel like I was ready to deal with the hassle of it all. Eventually the collection calls and overall stress about my financial situation forced me to take the first step and I started looking for an attorney. Being fairly new to Minnesota I had not developed contacts that could recommend an attorney so I found a state website that recommended bankruptcy attorneys and Mr. Friedman's firm was the first one I contacted. When I arrived for our initial appointment, I realized that this was a small firm with two attorney’s and one paralegal. To some people, this might have been a red flag, but after working with large firms in the past I know that the benefit of a small firm is that the majority of the work is generally done by the attorneys and not by the paralegals. Mr. Friedman charged me a fair rate and provided excellent service. One instance that illustrated this point was when we went for my meeting with the Trustee. The preceding two attorneys were completely unprepared for the meeting while Mr. Friedman had made it perfectly clear both what the Trustee needed from me in the way of paperwork as well as the type of questions that they would ask. As this was the only instance that I would be at the courthouse, this was the most stressful part of the process, and Mr. Friedman’s professional demeanor and attention to detail alleviated the majority of the stress. The whole process went so smoothly that I walked back to my car feeling like the weight of the world had been lifted off my shoulders. I would and will recommend Mr. Friedman’s service to anyone in need of the services of a bankruptcy attorney.

I worked with David and his partner Blake this year to help myself get out of debt and have a fresh start with my money and business. This law office was small and I felt comfortable talking about my problems with these young men. David was there every step of the way from initial meeting, answered my questions along the way to the final court date.

I contacted David and his partner Blake for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. I chose to use their services based on their website. Having worked with a few law offices in the past, I was in the market for something a little different. Their website describes them as a "Boutique" law firm - a perfect description of my experience.
David and Blake are very professional, yet down to earth. From the first meeting I had with them I could tell I was in good hands. They were patient and reassuring.
The office was intimate and I felt like I had both attorney's full attention. When I would call they knew who I was and knew my case inside and out. There were no receptionists or legal assistants to fuss with. All my calls and emails were returned promptly. A meeting with my attorney meant just that.
Working with David was a pleasure from start to finish. He provided me with excellent service and really stood by me during a stressful process. All of my legal questions were answered and I really felt like he went out of his way to help me.

I called David based on a recommendation and on his profile. My consumer issue was regarding a HAMP modification. He was familiar with the federal scam this program has become. He was very calm, listened well, was very knowledgeable and had my best interest in mind. He wanted the best resolution for the situation. I will definitely refer anyone needing help with a consumer matter to David. Thanks for your help, David!

In 2010 it was clear I needed to make a decision to change my financial situation. I interviewed a few attorneys to understand the bankruptcy process and determine if it was right for me. I chose to move forward with bankruptcy and hired David to file on my behalf because he was experienced with bankruptcy cases, very knowledgeable & professional, and he took the time to answer all my questions. I was very pleased throughout the entire process. He provided clear and complete information for each step along the way, and always kept me informed. My bankruptcy was discharched. From beginning to end I trusted David, relied on him and was continually pleased with the services he provided. I have recommended and referred David to others for a variety of services and all of the people I have referred have been very pleased with David's services as well. Thumbs WAY UP for this knowledgeable and experienced bankruptcy attorney!

Dave was great to work with, very knowledgeable and quickly put me at ease in a situation where I was unsure of the right course to take. I have already and plan to in the future refer him to anyone I know in need of services he and his firm provide.
