I grew up in New Hampshire and after serving in the Army and overseas for four years, I returned home to pursue my undergraduate degree with help from the GI Bill.  I moved to New Jersey after college to work for a mortgage lending company. I eventually started my own mortgage company but grew dissatisfied with the profession. I saw firsthand how the industry was giving loans to people who had no means to ever repay the debt.  I knew things were going to get bad and decided I was going to be ready when it did.  

I went to law school at night while supporting my family during the day.  Upon graduation I sold my company and started my new carrear in law. I have limited my practice to insolvency matters – which includes Bankruptcy, Assignments for the Benefit of Creditors, receiverships, etc.  I don’t dabble in areas of law I don’t know well (and wish other attorneys would not dabble in Bankruptcy).  

I have a passion for what I do.  There are few things I enjoy more than helping good people and viable businesses find solutions to overwhelming debt.

Most amazing experience ever!
David Stevens and his amazing team have been able to support and guide me through some of the most difficult experiences of my life. I do not exaggerate when I state that I do not believe I could have survived without them. They are professional, fast, caring, thoughtful, non-judgmental. I didn't think it was possible to have such support available. I highly recommend David Stevens and his team to anyone seeking support or legal council in this area.

Honest and Very Professional
David Stevens is one of the most knowledgable Attorneys my family were able to find out there in the big world of scammers and people trying to make money from our hardship. David Stevens was a breath of fresh air, he was completely honest with us and extremely professional. His advice gave my family a fresh start. He answered all our phone calls and emails same day and I never once felt that he was too busy for us even when I might have been asking a simple question. His support team were extremely helpful and friendly and to this day years later, I called with a question he still returns my calls immediately. If your in distress and need advise on how to work out what your next step should be to protect your home and stop those collection calls then I recommend you go meet with David Stevens.
