Master of his craft
I hired David, after going through, two other attorneys, very early on, during an extremely contentious divorce, that lasted nearly 3 years. From the first day he stepped foot into the courtroom, it was clear, I made the right choice. My circumstances immediately changed and improved, and we never looked back. David has always gone above and beyond, all my expectations, on all my court matters, and worked tirelessly, to get me a VERY, VERY, fair settlement in my divorce. Even more impressive, he was able to get a restraining order vacated, that was issued under false claims, and just weeks before my ex filed for divorce. And he managed to do this, during, and in the midst, of my divorce proceedings, which is almost unheard of. David knows the law inside and out, and always came prepared for court. His knowledge of the law is impressive, and his court room decorum, even more impressive. His staff is top notch, and very detail orientated, and so helpful. He is also very well received by judges. I would recommend David, every day of the week, and twice on Sunday. Had I not hired David, my circumstances today, would be very, very, different I'm sure, and for that, I'm grateful. He is a true gentleman, and a scholar.

From departmental hearing to SJC
We hired David to represent us on an issue we had with DCF. He was our lawyer from the initial appeal all the way to the Massachusetts SJC. Throughout the whole process he was professional and worked hard to represent our concerns. He was someone who was comfortable at all levels of the court system and really understand the different aspects of the law that we were dealing with. We were very happy with David and would recommend him to anyone.

Representation in an ugly divorce.
David Bodanza is representing me in an ugly divorce. My wife has been seeking experimental medical treatments for our son for a disease he dose not have according to the medical experts I have taken him to. She has also lied to MHC and DCF to get a case opened. Until David toke my case I had no access to my son. In one hearing I am with my son 3 days a week. We are poised to stop the medical abuse and get him back in school as his mother is not educating him. David has been instrumental in helping me protect my child. I really appreciate that he is a man of faith and has an excellent sense of humor.

My divorce
Mr. Bodanza represented me in my divorce. He listened to all my concerns. He took time to explain everything to me as my divorce process went along. I highly recommend him.

Obtaining our wills
Embarking on a trip out of the country caused us to realize the need for wills. We contacted David, and he advised and assisted us, and we had them in our hands within the week. This gave us great peace, ready to face life, or death. Thank you.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. I have known David for almost 30 years, working with him on some cases and opposing him on others. We have also developed a friendship which I value. David is a very capable attorney, a zealous advocate and a credit to our profession. He can be a tough negotiator while also being reasonable. I have referred clients to him when I couldn't handle their case and have subsequently received positive reports about David from those clients. He is someone I can take at his word. I highly recommend him."
