David Littman, the most biased and ignorant legal representative I have ever met. He was a court agreed upon CFI for my family but was very one sided and wouldn't even verify allegations made and just took anything someone would say as fact without researching or asking both parties before he drew his final conclusion, very shady and unprofessional.
In addition, David is so unprofessional that while he came to my home for a visit with my child the loser fell asleep on my couch (even though momentarily, with several head bobs) but then after dosing in and out of consciousness he finally got up to urinate all over my toilet without cleaning up or washing his hands before finally leaving.
If you want a fair and unbiased professional to help you through your families difficult time be sure to find someone else! Also be extremely cautious because I filed a complaint with the secretary of the state and they just dismissed me since he is a former judge and is well aligned with the state seeing as how he works for all these different counties now as an alleged qualified resource.
I would not recommend this law firm or any the lawyers that work here to anyone. They are unprofessional, untrustworthy, and incompetent. I was told to allow my ex to have one week of custody before the Initial hearing in order to avoid court and to the show the Judge that I was trying to be cooperative, and that we could get it changed at the Primary Custody Hearing. I was not told that a judge will rarely take away time freely given to a parent unless there is proven Endangerment Issues. I was not made aware of this until AFTER my case was finished and I spoke to other lawyers about my case. Had my lawyers at this law firm been completely honest with me I would have never agreed to a week of custody, across two different states for a baby.
This law firm sees nothing wrong with 50/50 custody no matter the distance or age of the child (my child was a baby at the time of our hearing)
I was told that they would do research on how a long distance parenting schedule would affect my child and present it to these findings to the court as well as get expert witnesses to help your case. But when the time came they did not do any of these things. No research, no advice, no expert witness.
The lawyers here do not know who the Judge for my case was. I asked on several occasions who my Judge was and I was outright lied to. They told me one judge who they thought was fair and impartial until the day before court when I was finally told the truth. I’m still not sure why they chose misinform and mislead me.
During the hearing one of my lawyers stayed on his computer to shop, my other lawyer daydreamed and zoned out, missing key information. She could not recall half of the case a few days afterward, so she was unable to answer any of my questions.
While the judge was giving her ruling in my case, they began whispering to whisper to one another which meant they missed key instructions from the judge, questions from the opposing lawyer.
I got the feeling that this was truly an Income Job for these lawyers and I was billed outrageously. Any questions or disagreements I had was met with the company line, “We are the best law firm in town, so we are allowed to charge high prices because we give you the best.” When I inquired further they became rude and threaten to ruin your credit report.
All in all, I lost my child, my time and my money using this incompetent law firm. Beware this law firm.
Mr. Littman was recommended to me by my attorney to resolve an issue of harassment after the previous PC/DM violated her own protocols, along with C.R.S., and established a private line of communication with my ex and her attorney.
Mr. Littman finds himself incapable of requiring that my ex comply with current orders as far as financial discovery go or demanding credible facts to support her fabricated spin relating to an injury I had sustained due to no fault of my own.
I concur with a few of the other negative reviews in that Mr.Littman is anything but objective.
I also agree with previous reviews in that Mr. Littman says a lot but never follows through on those statements. Mr. Littman has made several statements to my attorney that he was ready to resolve my case almost 6 months ago but never followed through. His communication is pretty much non-existent to me but he has regular contact with my ex and her attorney. I have hand delivered documents to his office along with bills from my doc for records HE requested. Sadly, other documents get "lost" and the bills sent to him by my doc go unpaid - even after contacting his office to let them know the bill was still not paid.
Mr. Littman has been stalling the resolution of my case for what appears to be the direct benefit of my ex and her attorney.
I am unfortunately a current client of this person but would warn anyone looking for a true professional to stay away from David Littman!!!!
In handling my case Mr. Littman has also used questionable billing practices.
In my opinion, Instead of doing his appointed duties as an officer of the court and handling my case in a professional and objective manner Mr. Littman pretty much does what he wants to - regardless of the effect on the people paying his salary.
AllI can say to all reading this review is good luck but DO NOT USE THIS ATTORNEY!!!
We used David Littman as our CFI for a post-divorce issue. He was suggested by the opposing side’s attorney and I naively assumed he would be fair and independent.
Mr. Littman initially told me that there was no reason this case should not be settled out of court and there was really no need for a CFI -- that he would apply pressure on both attorneys to make this happen. This never happened nor was there anything in his report on this. When the case went to court, Mr. Littman let me know the extensive fees I would incur to have him in the courtroom. Chose not to request his services but the other side did. Not clear if he ever charged the other side for his time coming to court – he has never provided proof that they were charged for his services.
Mr. Littman worked strictly with the other side in scheduling meetings with my teenage children. He did not even copy me or my attorney on the emails.
Mr. Littman seems to have a very cozy relationship with the firm of Sherr Puttmann Akins Lamb – would suggest not using him when going against any attorney from that firm.
David Littman came highly recommended to me by multiple friends who are themselves lawyers. I cannot thank them enough for that referral; retaining David as my representation during a series of post-decree conflicts with my ex-husband provided me with the support I needed to navigate a very stressful period with confidence.
David took over my case as the fourth attorney I had engaged since my divorce in 2008. Because of this, he had years of history to acquaint himself with to fully understand the intricacies of my case. He dealt with this with aplomb, even though I had an immediate need for his guidance in how to handle unfounded allegations of child abuse that my ex-husband reported to Child Protective Services and the police department. David diminished my ever-growing fears that I would be misunderstood by these agencies by making sure I knew what to expect in my interactions with them.
David then helped negotiate with the opposing council to choose a Parenting Responsibility Evaluator-- the individual who would examine the living situation of both homes, interview both sets of parents, interview our children, and then make a recommendation to the court on what would be in the best interest for the children. Needless to say, choosing the right PRE was imperative, and David made sure to fight for one who was well versed in high-conflict divorces as well as the unique needs of autistic children. David's previous experience in working with divorced parents of children with disabilities allowed him to know the intricacies involved in this process, and helped him find the best PRE for our case.
When the PRE's report came back favorably for our side, David used the leverage there to push for a mediation settlement versus a court appearance. However, the threat of a court case was always present. David showed a deft understanding of the law as well as human nature to seek the best outcome for my case.
In the end, David guided a potentially volatile case to an amazing conclusion. I began the process feeling overwhelmed and like I was going to lose my children even with no wrongdoing on my part. By the end I felt-- for the first time since my divorce-- like I was in a position of confidence.
David's office is incredibly welcoming. Instead of a sterile office building, David works out of a beautiful Victorian house in Denver. His staff of associates and paralegals are adept at their work, and were always willing to help whenever I needed. Even though I have a difficult time interacting with men in a position of power, David put me at ease with his gentle demeanor. For being such a strong gentleman and powerful lawyer, his interactions with clients is personal and non-threatening. Additionally, his tendency to bring one of his dogs to the office with him serves as a form of calming therapy for his clients-- assuming they like dogs!
I recognize that I was a high-maintenance client. David was more than willing to talk with me whenever I needed, either through email or phone conversations. His paralegals were fantastic at addressing my immediate needs, and then scheduling a specific time when I could speak with David, so I would know exactly when I would hear back from him. More than once David called me when he was out of town on business, or after hours. His willingness to ensure my peace of mind was invaluable.
I would highly recommend David Littman to anyone looking for family law representation, especially anyone coping with a high-conflict situation.
This was my first time having to work with and attorney and I was truly amazed at the level of service I received from David Littman and his awesome staff!! He truly made what was a horrible time in my life so much better. He and his staff always treated me with respect and genuine concern! I always felt cared for and that he was looking out for me as a person and not just a client. I cannot say enough about the Littman Law office. I would totally recommend their services to anyone who wants a caring attorney!!
Mr. Littman works at an office that has a homey atmosphere which reflects his caring and compassion for you the client. He is a seasoned family attorney and quickly grasps the essence of issues. He is equally adept at seeing the big picture and drilling down to specifics. He was in total command throughout the process, working well with the other lawyer and with the mediator to resolve my situation. I learned that there is no "simple" case and it is best to be represented by an attorney who is knowledgeable about the nuances of the law and is also seeking a resolution that will work--this saves time and money and stress. Mr. Littman has my highest regard and recommendation. You are in good hands if you have him in your court.
I interviewd a number of lawyers knowing my case would need someone with sensitivity and experience. I wrongfully decided to go with a lawyer that had a lower hourly rate and it cost me dearly. Desparate I came to David and he graciously took my case and was able to resolve all of the problems my preivous lawyer had caused and deliver a very favorable resolution for me. I would hightly reommend him. He was conscientious to the economical side of things yet took the time needed to ensure a positive and timely resolution. His expertise with family law and experience with numerous kinds of cases made him a great advocate for me and my children.
I retained this attorney to help me in a contested divorce involving children. It was a very expensive nightmare. I advise you find another family lawyer. My whole family is still traumatized from the experience. There are lots of good divorce family lawyers out there- this is not one of them.
Use this firm at your own risk!
After I moved out my wife decided that I should see my boys (age 10 and 12) only 3 days every other week. David suggested and arranged a temporary orders hearing with the outcome of 50/50 parenting time.
