He is thoughtful and knows how to solve a problem!
I like to share my experience with David. I am not a native English speaker, but David listens very carefully with patience. He listens, analyzes, focuses on how to solve a problem, and how all processes will be. David explained to me how much fees are, and what might be a settlement, and award. I hope this review will help someone who is looking for a great law partner to solve the problem. Good luck! Ike Chi

Humble and honest

He didnt ask me for anything during our 1 hour and 30 min conversation and he went out of his way to help me. Cant say that about a lot of people, much less lawyers. Thanks david

Advice when I needed it
David reached out to me, when I had concerns for my sons health and possible circumcision. I posted this in a popular FB group. He gave me so many reading sources and he personally went out of his way to help me find doctors who are pro circumcision. I just had an appt with that doctor and we are so thankful. I would have never been able to find this dr on my own. He is so knowledgeable and helpful.

Phenomenal Attorney
The reviews on Attorney Llewelyn are all true. I hired Mr. Llewelyn in 1998 for a Defective Products claim and even though it took a few years to settle, he successfully deliberated my case in an out-of-court settlement. My daughter and I were facing financial struggles during that time and Mr. Llewellyn went out of his way to provide necessities for my daughter and me. He even gave my daughter a stuffed reindeer animal for Christmas, and we still have it lol. 20 years later, I am seeking his legal expertise again because he is an AMAZING attorney who is very skilled and knowledgeable within his areas of practice. He is also very compassionate, kind, and caring person. Take my advice, you will be happy with this attorney. A 5 star rating isn’t enough for him. I highly recommend Attorney David Llewelyn.

Best Attorney in Atlanta
I meet with Mr.Liewellyn and his staff on two occasions in a potential medical malpractice claim through a referral felt like I had known him years . My potential case you can say was strong but with difficult issues . Even though he was not able to take on my case just his actions in his conference room was amazing and would have liked to see him in a court room . To me he is amazing imagine how a jury would see him. Strongly recommend him to anyone.

David J. Llewellyn
Mr. David Llewellyn is a great man and a wonderful attorney. I was at wits end with searching for an attorney, with the complexity of my case. After a referral, I made an appointment with David Llewellyn for a consultation, I left his office feeling a little bit more comfortable and at ease about my circumstance. Mr. Llewellyn assured me his job was to help me find the best solution for my legal issue. My case was settled a couple years later and with a handsome settlement. He only goes by the law; in my opinion he’s straight as arrow and pure as gold. He will always be my number one attorney.
