Professional and Personable Bankruptcy Attorney
With me, I found David to be detailed in describing my options and what he suggested to the best avenue for me. However, he gave me plenty of time to consider the options and then make my decision. Not only did he allow me to make periodic payments, sort of like an Escrow, until I had the funds to file. His fees were more reasonable than most. David walked me through each step and reassured me of what to expect. I certainly hope none of my friends need his services; however, I'll definitely reccommend him with confidence that they too will be grateful to have chosen David!

Responsive & Cool
David was responsive to my inquiry for help and thankfully he was able to take my case! His knowledge, experience, and calm/cool demeanor helped make the process go by like a breeze. While the process is different for everyone you definitely want someone like Dave in your corner as he is transparent and communicates directly and clearly so you know where things are in real time - especially with a process not many of us will ever do again. I am very happy I hired Dave as his diligence helped to ensure the outcome of my case was as expected based on his initial consultation with me! Definitely give David a call to see if he can help you!

Stop searching a hire David today!
When thinking of filing bankruptcy I researched many lawyers and talked to a few. I told myself to contact one more lawyer and then that’s when I contacted David. After talking to David I knew that he was the right attorney. He provides an expert knowledge with awesome customer service. He was very easy to work with and he helps to make the process as smooth as possible. I will always recommend him whenever I know someone is seeking bankruptcy help.

5 Star Service!
Dave expertly guided me through the Ch 13 process and all the legal red tape from start to finish (5+ year process). He successfully negotiated with a challenging trustee. He is very responsive to questions and concerns. I highly recommend his services!

Kind, Caring and Super Helpful
Making the decision to meet with a bankruptcy attorney is one of the hardest decisions I have ever made. I literally googled “bankruptcy attorney, Richmond, VA, Kind” and Dave’s name came up. I contacted him late one night and had an email back when I woke up the next morning. He was amazing at helping me through the process, answering my questions and making me feel like I wasn’t a complete and utter failure for being in the situation I was in. We had the unique experience of starting this process prior to Covid-19 and finishing it during the pandemic. He kept me up to date as hearing dates got pushed back and made sure I knew exactly what to expect when we finally did get to do our hearing. I can not recommend him enough. His kind, laid back, caring, yet completely professional personality was exactly what I needed. If you are reading this, and feel like you have no hope, call him. I’m standing on the other side thanks to Dave and have the weight of the world lifted off my shoulders!

David is an excellent attorney. He completely and clearly explained the Chapter 7 filing process , including my responsibilities and the work he would complete on my behalf. Everything worked exactly the way he explained it to me . The filing was completed quickly and almost painlessly. I highly recommend David to anyone that needs to complete a bankruptcy filing .

I highly recommend David Spiro
David Spiro was highly recommended to me as a top notch bankruptcy lawyer and he even exceeded my expectations. From the moment we had our first contact on the phone to meeting in his office to the months of exchanging documents and him answering my many questions....I always felt I had the best support I could ask for. I highly recommend David Spiro as well as his partner David Browne as two lawyers that you can trust to have your best interest in mind and do whatever is necessary to get you the best possible result..

David K. Spiro is a superb attorney, and we highly recommend him.
We wanted the best representation we could obtain and researched experience, peer endorsements, legal awards, background, location, and education to land with Dave. He personally answered on the first ring and I was immediately impressed; the rest of our experience continued to validate the research. Dave's accessibility, professionalism, and communication whether it is face to face, phone or email, is unparalleled. We’ve worked with him on two separate matters over the past year and his timely, personalized service has been consistently stellar. Dave answers all questions and explains the available options clearly and concisely. He's highly respected and knowledgeable in navigating both the technical and nuanced relationships of the legal system. He offers sound advice and referrals as needed. Dave's personality is affable and straightforward such that you may consider him a kind, dependable friend in addition to competent legal representation. He can quickly achieve efficient and amicable outcomes, without surprises. The professional fees are very competitive, especially for the incredible level of inclusive and timely service. One of our best decisions during a challenging period and we would recommend Dave to friends and family members.

Worth every penny
If you are searching for an attorney for bankruptcy advice or services, stop your search now. I searched for a lawyer with 20+ years experience, formally with a major firm and now in a smaller personal practice. He was everything I was needing. Very professional and efficient. I was not pawned off on a Para or an Asst. I dealt directly with Dave. He knew exactly what was in my best interest. His rates were fair. And everything he said would happen, happened exactly as he said it would. I give my highest recommendation.

Seamless and Simple
Dave was a great help in an awkward and difficult time. He made the entire process much easier than I expected and he was always available for questions or concerns that I had. He was always on point with making sure I knew what to expect and when things were going to happen. I pray I am never in a position where I need representation for these issues again, but if I am, I will definitely look to Dave Spiro! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Great bankruptcy attorney
Another attorney in Richmond referred me to David Spiro and we could not have been happier. Great advice. Knowledgeable. Honest. Willing and able to answer all our questions along the way. I would definitely refer him to others in need of bankruptcy advice.

Great attorney!
Mr. Spiro has been the best attorney we’ve ever hired. His communication on matters is excellent particularly his response time to our questions. We never waited longer than a couple of hours for him to get back to us. This far different then our experience with previous attorneys. Additionally he is very detail oriented, we were never left guessing about any aspect of the legal process. His experience is evident from the positive outcome in our legal endeavor. If you need legal advice or representation, David Spiro is the man for the job.
