I messaged 5 lawyers on AVVO regarding my situation. Mr. Bliven was the only lawyer that took the time to read my question and guide me in the right direction.

I retained David in August 2012, since then I tried to make things work out with my wife, moved out moved back in, to make a long story short, in October 2014 we signed a Stipulation of Discontinuance it was mailed to his office , they did not receive it, the usps must still be using horses , they received it May 2016, in the meantime I had told him we had gotten a mediator to settle this , so instead of looking at the date it was signed and letting me know they finally received it a year and a half later they went and filed it anyways , so now we have to refile and it is going to cost hundreds of dollars more for court costs and such , anyway thank your office for keeping on top of things, A simple email letting me know that you received it finally would have been nice especially since you knew we had gotten a mediator .

I actually found David Bliven on Avvo.com while I was looking for an attorney to assist me on my paternity case. I consider myself to be a pretty intelligent person and capable of filing all required documents on my own behalf. But due to time constraints, I wasn't able to fully prepare. With that being said, my choice on choosing Mr. Bliven has been a godsend. I feel like that I'm talking to more of a colleague than a lawyer. He is very efficient, direct, logical and great at what he does and has made my paternity case process a breeze. Very professional and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend his services to any family, friends and colleague's who are looking for family law based services.

I hired Mr. Bliven to represent me in a Divorce. From the outset he was knowledgeable, honest, and presented me with my options. I was cc'd on every correspondence, and kept informed every step of the way, eliminating the need for me to call for regular updates. Monthly bills were itemized, and clearly delineated the scope of services that were being billed for. Is he full of warm fuzzies? No. He is matter of fact, and tells it like it is. But he got the job done, and did it in a timely manner. I've already referred a friend to his office.

David Bliven got me through my divorce process easily and painlessly. He helped me think through every step of the process, kept my costs to a minimum, and got it done. He was worth every penny. Thank you, David Bliven!

My experience with Mr Bliven was horrible. At no time during my experience with him that I felt he was looking out for my best interest. Any inquiries made by me received a condescending response. Mr Bliven on two court appearance arrived late and didn't appear interested in my case. My case involved vacating a childcare and child support decision which involved submitting almost 90 percent of my income due to me missing a court date due medical issues. I've worked in law enforcement for 25 years and I've seen lawyers worker harder for people on crack.

Mr. Bliven represented me in a child support case. I was very pleased with the services provided by Mr. Bliven. He is professional, courteous, and knows his stuff! I am completely gratified with the outcome of my case thanks to Mr. Bliven knowledge of family law. Mr. Bliven kept me up to date on all matters pertaining to my case and his billing is fair and accurate for the work he puts into the case. I would certainly recommend him to anyone that is seeking a top notch lawyer in the area family court.

Although I have not met with Mr. Bliven yet. I contacted his office on a Friday of a Holiday Weekend. His office's response was immediate and I was treated with the respect as if I was already a client. His staff took the time to email me immediately and when I called I was given an appointment that accommodates my schedule. Custody matters are very sensitive and clients can be emotional. It was a relief to speak with someone who was not only professional and courtesy, but also showed genuine concern. I look forward to my consultation with Mr. Bliven.
