David is an excellent attorney. He was very respectful to us and our situation. He worked hard for us and saved our home, rental properties, and many other personal items. He made a horrible time in our life manageable. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

From start to finish undoubtedly the finest experience I've ever had with an attorney/ attorney's. David Valencik and his partner Donald Calaiaro of Calaiaro and Valencik brought a high level of integrity, experience and forethought matched only by the firms work ethic. I could not be more pleased with how they guided me through the process of a very complicated and difficult case to the end result that exceeded my best case scenario expectation. If you need this kind of team I suggest you not hesitate to secure their commitment. Run don't walk !!

Strong Firm, Excellent Lawyer, Great Advice
My review concerns two separate, yet related engagements. Initially, I had engaged Mr. Valencik and his firm to consult myself and a family member regarding issues surrounding growing medical debts incurred by the family member and the potential ramifications of those expenses if, in the long run, they could not be paid. Mr. Valencik provided excellent advice regarding the protection of assets important to the family member given his advancing medical issues -- considering both potential bankruptcy options as well as general estate planning. That advice proved essential at a later date, when estate issues ultimately arose, which I also engaged Mr. Valencik to handle. Mr. Valencik's firm has handled the estate work, lifting a tremendous burden from me and my family during this difficult time. Responses to both e-mails and phone calls are prompt, the billing is appropriate (I have not been nickel and dimed for quick calls or e-mails to clarify steps I need to take), and the advice instills confidence.

I had the unfortunate experience of having to file chapter 11 do to circumstances out of my control, this devastated me! I was referred to Attorney David Valencik by a law-firm in Washington county Pa who was my personal lawyer at the time, his advice saved me. I asked my personal Attorney who I should go to, his advice was David Valencik (their firm is one of the best I have ever run up against) ONE OF THE BEST PIECES OF ADVICE THAT WAS EVER GIVEN TO ME. outstanding lawyer, as stressful as a bankruptcy can be Davids advice and knowledge was impeccable.Not only did David save me money, advise me well he explained every detail and relieved my fear and stress. You know he is good when other Attorneys advise you as such and they don't even work in the same county. Great Lawyer, great law firm, I am thank for Davids hard work. (his advice saved me financially and emotionally)

Chapter 11
David gave me emotional support with specific answers of what will happen and what to expect to be going through. He talked me through each step which made the unexpected a little more tolerable. Any questions I had he answered honestly and direct to the point.
