David L. Friedman

About me

David has handled more than 200 bankruptcy cases since starting the firm. He enjoys more complex cases, including lots of Chapter 13 reorganization. His cases often involve restructuring mortgages to save people’s homes. While many bankruptcy lawyers see bankruptcy as the only thing they do, David is always looking for claims under consumer protection laws to help put more money in his clients’ pockets. 


David started practicing law in New York City in 2009. Working the fast-paced courtrooms of New York was an adrenaline rush, but Minnesota was calling. A long summer weekend turned into a house in Northeast Minneapolis, and in December 2009, David co-founded Friedman Iverson.


Now that he's a Twin Cities "lifer," he tries his hardest to balance born-and-bred New York grit with Minnesota nice. He might still cut you off on 35W, but at least he's learned to wave.
