I recommend David Pivtorak
I hired David 6-12 months ago.
David handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 7 matter.
I have previously worked with no lawyers.
I am taking the time to write this review because David Pivtorak took so much time with me when I needed it the most. I don’t want to be too long winded, however, I do think I should explain how I was feeling as someone in need of a lawyer for the first time. For me, the decision to finally talk to a bankruptcy lawyer came after much self-degradation, especially for finding myself in this position in the first place. If you are reading this, then you too may be feeling some of the angst I was experiencing. I was embarrassed, humiliated and thinking I was less than a man for contemplating filing for bankruptcy. I was very cautious in reaching out and having to expose the truth of my financial situation with someone. However, I did and I regret only one thing. I should have called David sooner, much sooner and that’s the truth. I had mentally put myself through hell for months (12) in trying to figure it out on my own. I had become someone else, even to my friends I was not the happy, confident person I am known to be. I made an appointment with David and met him at his very nice San Francisco office. I was a little anxious to say the least, but I should not have been. The relief of having shared my financial burden with him was profound. In his confident, take all the time you need demeanor he listened, enquired and advised me in such a non-judgmental way, I actually smiled again. He made me feel much better about my position, and expertly guided me through the bankruptcy with great care and support. Through the process, he answered all my questions promptly. He telephoned me and emailed me to keep me up to date. David succeeded in getting a successful outcome to my case and I am very appreciative of that. He is the best, a consummate professional lawyer, bar none. Without the slightest hesitation and with some fervor, I highly recommend David Pivtorak at Law. Don’t wait like I did, contact him and you will feel much better. Thanks for reading.
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I know David through a mutual acquaintance and have worked with him on a number of matters. He has the ability and temperament needed to be an excellent lawyer. He is constantly trying to learn and improve his skills, where are considerable already. I would recommend him without hesitation.
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
David is a top notch personal injury advocate. He just received an excellent six figure jury verdict on a car accident case that many other attorneys would not take. Dave is a straight shooter and is great at going right to the heart of a matter, New York style. I have known Dave for 4 years now. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone who needs personal injury, bankruptcy, or foreclosure advice/representation.
