Expeditious and Understanding
We recently had the pleasure of working with Mr. Serafin and we are extremely thankful that we decided to hire him. When dealing with bankruptcy we had so many questions and wanted to be sure that we hired someone who was patient and knowledgeable. David was available throughout the whole process, ready to answer any questions and address any concerns we had. In addition to his gracious and experienced nature, David was expeditious. Every questions and concern was addressed promptly. We felt valued and like our case was of the utmost importance. I can not overstate the importance of this and what great peace of mind it brought to us. We knew throughout the entire handling of our case that we had hired the most capable and knowledgeable attorney. Extremely grateful for his service.

Affordable, Knowledgable, Responsive, and Attentive
I looked into countless bankruptcy attorneys online, called around, and made a list of top candidates that fell into my criteria which included experience, education, ratings, and price. I then set up appointments to meet these attorneys to get a feel for them as not to conclude and base my decision on first impressions and to give everyone a fair shot, but when I sat down with David I immediately felt comfortable and at ease, confident in his knowledge and his abilities, and didn’t feel like I needed to look any further than my first appointment, and so I hired him almost immediately, and wasn’t the least bit disappointed in my decision either. David was always there to take my phone calls and emails and lead me through from start to finish in what can be an intimidating process and with as little pain as possible and in no time at all. The AVVO rating is not a true reflection of David who has lots of excellent reviews here and on Google and is from my experience and apparently others an excellent bankruptcy attorney. I highly recommend David if you want everything to go off without a hitch and to be at ease as it does!

Highly Recommend David Serafin
David helped me get through my bankruptcy without making me feel worse about myself. He was extremely professional and easy to work with. Anytime I had questions he would promptly respond to my email. David explained every step of the process and was also very supportive when I had my court hearing. You would not go wrong in having David as your attorney!!

honest and caring
David was very helpful when I was in a desperate sitaution. He was responsive to my needs and kind. He reassured me when I felt I was at the end of my rope. My home was at risk and I had tried several attorneys as well as all the "recommended" steps to save my home. David helped me. He was very prompt and attentive. Thank you for all you have done for me! DG

A helpful, terrific lawyer
Bankruptcy is scary and I'm so glad we hired David to help us. Our case has been complicated and he has been patient answering our many many questions. I'm grateful for his knowledge and I always feel better after talking to him.

Thank You David!
Our case was very complicated but David handled it very professionally and after it was done, we couldn't believe how easy it ended up being. I am glad we were able to find such a trustworthy attorney who had our best interests at heart!!

Thanks David!
The whole bankruptcy process was terrifying but after meeting with David the first time our anxiety decreased a ton! He was efficient and fast in getting everything done. After it was done my husband and I said to each other - "that's it"?? If we would have known how seamless it was, we would have called David months ago!!

Very laid back and knowledgeable lawyer
David has helped me through my legal issues very efficiently. His rates are very reasonable too. He's answered tons of emails from me in a timely manner to make sure I feel comfortable with the situation and know what to do without any complaint. Super laid back and didn't make me feel that he was just around to collect my money. Hopefully I won't be in a situation to need to use him again, but if I do find myself in one of those situations he'll be the first one I'll call!

Bankruptcy client
David was very sensitive to my case and helped me fend off countless numbers of creditors who were harassing me. My Chapter 13 payment plan is quite reasonable and I now feel much more in control of my financial destiny.

Review for David Serafin
David was extremely helpful and informative when dealing with a very sensitive complex issues. I highly recommend his services to anyone.

Outstanding attorney
David does an excellent job of breaking every detail down in a language that I can understand. He listened and responded to every question and, best of all, made me feel comfortable when asking questions.

I trust this guy to give me a second chance!!
I knew David was the lawyer for me when I was doing interviews for my Chapter 13 case. He is highly intelligent and with his experience in tax law I was comfortable turning over my mess of a financial life! We had many years of unpaid taxes and he got us straight with the feds and state. He didn't judge our situation. Our payment plan was reasonable and only 3 years in length. He also saved us from losing our car to liquidation (we still owed). He is better than most attorneys in communication and updates on the case. His reposnse to my inquiries is better than average. The money to put down on his services is reasonable, higher than some, but on par with many attorneys. If you are looking for the $100 down attorney, this is not it. But you won't be treated like a cow going to slaughter. Yes, that is how I would describe my experience with those discount lawyers.

Bankruptcy and debt Attorney | Feb 02
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"David is a great asset to the Colorado bankruptcy community. He recently participated in an effort among local bankruptcy attorneys urging one of our Judges to adopt a more forgiving approach regarding a serious technical issue that has been harming people in Chapter 13 bankruptcies. Here's what the judge said about this effort: ". . . the Court concludes that the additional information and legal argument advanced by the Bankruptcy Practitioners Group is well-developed and very useful to the Court notwithstanding some duplication. The Court commends the members of the Bankruptcy Practitioners Group for their time and effort as well as dedication to the development of bankruptcy law in this important area of Chapter 13 practice.""

"I've known David since 1995 when we met in college. We were classmates and became great friends. He is a very intelligent and hard working man. We were friends through college, then law school, and thereafter as we both entered our legal professions. We are both lawyers in different fields. I know him to be a great person with very strong ethics, strong work habits, and thorough legal knowledge. After knowing this man for two decades, I can recommend him without reservation."

Dave goes out of his way to protect the best interests of his clients and is an excellent negotiator and trial attorney. Dave also exudes the highest level of professionalism and ethics."
