Perfect
Couldn't ask for better service, I was surprised by how easy it was to finally put Reeds in their place who had been driving me crazy for a bill I didn't owe for a year,

Dave Provided Exceptional Advice and Service
Dave's law firm is small and thus well coordinated. All team members were knowledgeable, professional, and totally dedicated to winning my case and delivering justice in the form of a swift, decisive settlement. I turned over my case to Dave's office and they went to work immediately. Dave presented the indisputable evidence in a compelling demand that resulted in an extremely attractive settlement! During the few months of negotiation, Dave kept me in the loop. He replies promptly to any calls/texts and was a delight to work with. You can hire Dave Maxfield with supreme confidence that you have a powerful advocate fighting for you. I plan to have Dave represent me in any future consumer finance conflict. I often say finding a good attorney is like finding GOLD, Dave Maxfield is a GREAT attorney! I am so pleased with the results that he produced! Thank you, Dave and crew!

Amazing and knowledgeable
Dave is simply amazing and so is Janelle (paralegal) He helped me through a really rough time, but he never gave up nor doubted the process. I really appreciate him more than he will ever know. He is knowledgeable, professional and always makes himself available for any and every question. It doesn't hurt that he is also extremely down to earth. Thanks Dave for all of your hard work.

Heaven Sent Attorney
This was the first time in life my family and I have ever needed an attorney. We did not know what to expect, but please listen...we did not expect this type of exceptional customer service and passion for the law. Mr. Dave Maxfield was so knowledgeable about our type of case. His dedication to get a victory was present from the first time we spoke on the phone, during the case, and even when it was successfully resolved. He won the case and I can honestly say he is heaven sent. In today's time, I don't expect others to sustain a great work ethic and to honestly care about people. I was so wrong. Even if our case was not won, this review would not be different. The ability for an attorney to work on your behalf and you remain worry free is a feeling I would want every person out there to experience. There is an old saying..you get what you pay for. I am a living witness that my money was well spent and I would pay it again! I am not sure how to go about notifying the bar about this type of stellar legal services, but I am going to take the time to find out and do so! Please listen to me, this is the attorney you need on your side! Don't settle for rest, Dave is the absolute best! My mother now only has one phrase, "Call Mr. Maxfield, he is the REAL DEAL!! " She is right and there is no other way to put it! God made nurse practitioners like me to save lives and he made David to rescue clients who are in the middle of a legal crisis. All I can say is thank you Lord! -FOREVER Grateful Client!

A man who truly cares about people
My experience with Mr. Maxfield was amazing from the very beginning. He was very thoughtful and kind. He listened and had a plan of action created in no time at all. Not only did he help resolve the initial issue, he was able to acquire compensation for the actions on the part of the company. I cannot sing his praises enough. From the first email I sent to him, he has been nothing short of kind, caring and fun to work with. If you have a consumer law issue, do yourself a favor and call Dave Maxfield first. You will be so glad you did.

Amazing Job!
I had a difficult case against a shady car dealership and finance company with little evidence in my favor. I didn’t think I had a chance against 2 companies and felt I had already lost. Then I found Dave Maxfield. His reviews and experience drew me to him. He immediately put me at ease. He was knowledgeable and not intimidated by the companies. When you’re the ‘little guy’ going against a company, you want someone you know can fight them. I won both cases. I couldn’t be happier with my results. I may have chosen the wrong dealership, but I definitely chose the right lawyer. I highly recommend him and his team!!!

Consumer Advocate
Dave and his team are outstanding in the field of consumer protection law, providing excellent, prompt and personal service. From the time we initiated contact to the completion of our case, they remained proactive, responsive, and supportive. They helped make what could have been an extremely unpleasant situation far more tolerable. Because of their hard work and expertise, we were able to reach a satisfactory settlement within a reasonable time frame. It has been a pleasure working with professionals who sincerely care about the best interest of their clients. They’re a great team to have in your corner and we’re so glad they were in ours!

He helped when no one else would
I contacted Dave through this website just to get advice. He took the bull by the horns and opened a case for me. I couldnt be more pleased with the results of my case. I am just overjoyed with what he and his team have done for me. I just could not believe that there are actual lawyers out there whom actually do everything that they can do to just help someone in need. It has just been a great experience for me.

Great work from Dave Maxfield and his wonderful team!
I came to attorney Dave Maxfield in need of consumer protection help taking on a big and powerful company. He was up for the challenge. He and his team went far beyond my expectations with regard to helping me, and I am completely satisfied with the results. Throughout the process Dave Maxfield and his team were thorough and meticulous, demonstrating outstanding expertise in law, especially consumer protection. Dave Maxfield is smart and uncovered things that I would never have found on my own. To top it off, Dave Maxfield is a genuinely nice and honest person who I found to be trustworthy. (I think it is so important to have confidence and trust in your attorney.) It is obvious to me that Dave Maxfield does this work out of a genuine desire to help people who are being taken advantage of by big companies. He fought for me and won, and I am so grateful to him and his team.

The extra mile...
I contacted Dave Maxfield in regards to a consumer matter I was dealing with that required expert legal analysis and knowledge. I had no money to pay for legal counsel. I found Dave online and reached out to him for legal advise. My finances were not an issue for Dave. Dave treated me and my case as if it was the most important case on his docket in spite of our never meeting face t o face. Dave responded quickly to my questions and to information sent his way. Dave offered me advice that served my interests, not his own. Though Dave could not help me in the end due to some significant legal barriers, Dave Maxfield stood out as a true professional. Dave went above and beyond the call of duty. I am most grateful for the time, effort, and energy Dave gave me. When someone assists you without having anything to gain, you have found a man you can trust. Dave Maxfield is such a man. Thank you, Dave, for going the extra mile for me.

Knowledgable, professional Attorney who responds quickly!
Attorney Maxfield is very prompt in returning your emails and calls. He is very knowledgeable of industry regulations and provides detailed explanations to your questions. He's very professional and courteous. He never made me feel like he didn't have time and made me feel like my issue was important. . He's the only Attorney who responded to my questions with solidified answers and didn't brush me off. I would recommend Attorney Maxfield to anyone needing an Attorney to handle your financial matters.

A True Advocate for the Consumer- Kudos!
Dave, You have truly been an advocate for the consumer on this and a blessing for me. When you are working with a true professional, someone who is passionate and caring about the outcome for the client, it is very easy to be patient. Additionally, the resources your organization used to manage the process (i.e. communication portal, credible and intelligent staffing, and personal availability to discuss concerns) add immeasurable value to your service. I hope not to have this issue again in the future, but I will send my friends with consumer issues to you always. Thanks.
