Extremely knowledgeable and confident on how the entire process works
David Shultz is by far the best attorney I have ever spoken with. His knowledge and confidence on how the entire process works was extremely reassuring when I was a little anxious about the criminal driving offense I got in carver county. We reached out last minute and he was super prompt and was able to make sure it was 100 percent resolved. he treated me both professionally and with respect like a real person, but also like a friend. I would definitely recommend Mr Shultz.

Professional, Result focused and friendly
I never thought I would ever need a criminal lawyer in my life. This stuff just freaks me out. But stuff happens.... It was my lucky day that I googled and found Dave. Dave was super helpful and professional. During our first meeting he spent around 2 hours educating us about the process, risks options and recommended us a plan that we all agreed to. Throughout the process Dave was prompt, on top of things and a friend you can trust. Dave knows his stuff well and is really good at heart person. I would recommend Dave 100% And BTW I got a judgement in my favor...Thank you Dave.

Business Director
David was incredible to work with! He takes the time to understand every detail of your legal situation and understand your goals and expectations to resolve the matter. He was very clear and detailed in explaining the process and the potential outcomes. David took the time to address every question and concern I had and showed he truly cared and would work hard to represent my best interest. It was also very obvious that David was a known and respected attorney in the courtroom. The ADA and Judge showed a great deal of respect and professionalism when working with David. He over exceeded my expectations for legal representation and over achieved on my goals for the legal outcome of my case.

Exceptional legal service
From the first time I spoke with Dave I felt very comfortable. He is so kind and calm and answered all my questions plus he was empathetic and very trustworthy. He is honest and reliable and I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much Dave for everything you did for me.

Excellent legal services
I contacted David on a DO citation where I felt wrongly accused. From the moment we met to discuss the different strategies, I was convinced I had made the right decision to retain his services. David was thorough with the entire process and kept me up to date during the entire legal case. In the end, the case was dismissed. Me and my family are very grateful that we decided to hire David. His legal expertise was a huge impact on my case. I'd recommend his services to anyone in need. He's just flat out great at what he does. You won't regret having him on your side.

Wrongfully Stopped
I hired David after being wrongfully stopped in Bloomington, MN and charged with a DUI. My car was impounded without released and my drivers license was suspended. David worked to have my case acquitted including getting my DL reinstated and my car released all within a period of 6 months. I highly recommend David Schultz if you find yourself in need of a defense attorney due to a DWI or DUI driving infraction.

Well Connected
Dave did a great job representing me for a recent incident. He has prior experience with prosecuting and is now defending clients so he understands the process from both sides. He knows and gets along well with the key players in the MN justice system which I believe helped me achieve a better outcome in a more timely manner. He is well liked by his peer group and is very pleasant to work with!

OUTSTANDING ATTORNEY!!!
I am in my late 30’s and was faced with a first offense DWI and refusal to sign. David stepped in and treated me with dignity and respect while providing me with exceptional counsel during one of the most tumultuous experiences of my life. He is a consummate professional that offered clear explanations of my case and helped me outline goals and an action plan to facilitate the best possible outcome for my situation. His knowledge and dedication to his craft, and to me as a client, resulted in a stay of adjudication on the criminal side and a rescinded license revocation on the implied consent case – quite simply, I could not have asked for a better outcome. His fees are extremely reasonable and worth every single penny. I fully endorse David and I lack the words to properly convey my gratitude for his guidance throughout my experience and the final results of my cases.

VERY SATISFIED CLIENT!!
I am a 74 year old man who had never been in trouble before. I was charged with a DWI. I blew a .13 (.08 is the legal limit). I talked to many lawyers, some said there was nothing they could do for me others promised the moon and said they were sure they could beat the charge or guaranteed a reduction. I was about to give up. I received a letter from Dave Schultz and on the outside of the form letter was a hand written state ment. DELAN I CAN HELP YOU!! After talking to Dave, I realized I had found my attorney. He made no promises and only said I think I can help you. Dave has excellent personal skills and is very knowledgeable, confident, and easy to talk too. I highly recommend him! PS. He was able to get my charges reduced to careless driving which is almost unbelievable with a blow of .13.

Great experience
Mr. Schultz was very thorough, professional and patient, with reasonable rates and payment options. He started my case by asking me my goals and then we set up a clear game plan, from day one. He explained to me all the different potential outcomes and consequences. He listened to my input. Dave followed through on everything, from day one. In the end, he negotiated a deal that was just about the best I could have hoped for, apart from having the case thrown out. He couldn't have done any more than he did, and I know he was genuinely happy for me.

A bad situation made good!
I am so very pleased with the end results David was able to get settled with my case. David was able to help reduce my worries by explaining my options and the possible outcomes very thoroughly regarding my case even though he remained very up front and realistic. I appreciate his honesty and am very grateful how hard he worked to represent me. I also appreciate how well David communicated with me as my case continued. David showed an honest and sincere interest in what I wanted as a final result in my case and he worked hard to go over and above and was able to get an even better outcome than the one I was hoping for. I would for sure use David's services again in the future if I am in need of legal representation as well as would highly recommend him to friends and family. Thank's again David!

Achieved Best Possible Result
Bottom line is that Dave did a great job for our family. Dave listened to our position and what we wanted to achieve. Having never dealt with the legal/justice system previously, Dave guided us through what we could expect and help set expectations regarding the resolution of our case. Dave's expertise showed as he was able to achieve the best possible result of our case. No hesitation reaching back out to Dave should the we ever need legal representation again.

Competent, Sincere and Trustworthy
One of the only good things about my legal ordeal was that I met Attorney Dave Schultz. He truly is much more than just a lawyer. First and foremost he’s a humble human being, who just happens to know the law, that sincerely wants to help people. Unlike other attorneys I spoke with, Dave didn’t use unscrupulous tactics to take advantage of my vulnerable situation. He explained the legal process, my options, and not once, did he pressure me. The other attorney's, I spoke with seemed more concerned about injecting fear, urgency, and even making me feel less of a person, with the only goal being to obtain my credit card number! In the end, I found Dave to be a highly competent and trustworthy attorney. If you find yourself in a situation that you need counsel, do yourself a favor and consult with Dave.

Deserves 6 stars - Best Lawyer! A+++
I needed a lawyer who would listen, care and defend. I was charged with two criminal offenses that could have seriously impacted the rest of my life. I had a lot to lose and needed someone that would take my case seriously and I could have not been any happier with my decision to hire David Schultz. Dave did such a great job in advising & helping me thru an extremely difficult time for me & my family. He was always accessible & gave me a tremendous sense of security about my case. With Dave's outstanding professionalism and passion, both criminal charges were dropped, which to be honest was a very long shot. The evidence against me was substantial but with Dave's recommendations, eloquence and professionalism, he was able to get both charges dropped. Needless to say, I cried when I got those amazing news. I couldn't believe that was accomplished and I will never forget everything Dave has done for me and my family. It was a very tough case and he nailed it! Thank you Dave for professionally navigating me through everything & enabling me to have a prosperous future!! You are simply the best out there.

Professional and a great gentleman
Dave represented me on my first DWI case. He won my case for better result for me. He is very knowledgeable of how the law works, on the top of things, very cool, friendly, understanding, reasonable, and over all a great gentleman. He doesn’t give you unrealistic hope, but inform/advice you on what might happen and work toward the best result for your case. Dave is NOT like these some greedy and inflexible lawyers. I am super satisfied by his work and i will recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much, Dave.

The Five Star Lawyer
Smooth talking and looking for my best interests, David Five Star was able to prevent confinement after my second DUI with the refusal. With his skill in high diction and connotation he was able to make a deal with prosecutors suggesting that I instead had to do interlock for two years. This allowed me to continue my career and manage my business.
