David Blum did excellent work for me in a complex civil litigation case that involved multiple litigants and attorneys. Over nine months, he articulately plead my case to a favorable end, without getting mired in irrelevant details or the emotional tangents of the other parties. His filings were timely and he kept the ball rolling, where it was obvious the opposing parties would have preferred to drag the case on. I'd recommend him for any kind of legal work.

I’m an actual client of Mr. Blum having hired him about 9 months ago to represent me in divorce proceedings. Mr. Blum has been tough and fair in zealously representing me against my ex-spouse who will just not go away. In addition to dragging these proceedings out far longer than need be, my ex-spouse has sued my employer, the Utah court system in two districts, the police department, his first ex-spouse, her family, my co-workers, and anyone else he can think of. He blames my attorney for everything that doesn't go his way in court, despite the fact that he's Pro Se and files documents that have no facts and just drag out the separation process.
Mr. Blum has discouraged me from incurring excessive legal costs just because I could. If an issue is not really important in the long run, Mr. Blum has wisely counseled against fighting over it. He has given great advice where child support is concerned, considering my ex-spouse refuses to work to get around supporting six children. As I have learned, some things just don’t matter in the long run and it doesn’t make emotional or financial sense to waste time, energy and money just to find that out.
In sum, I have been pleasantly surprised at how efficient, tough and caring Mr. Blum has been. His responses are always articulate, timely, and based in what's legal and factual. He doesn't make things up on the fly because he doesn't have to, and the advice he gives is always in my best interest based on case law. I've had several lawyers throughout this whole ordeal and Mr. Blum has been the best. I highly recommend him and will continue to use him to represent me in the future and unfortunately, I suspect that will be the rest of my life.

I went through a terrible divorce with my ex which took almost two years to finalize. David was very patient as my ex went through 5 lawyers during that time. In the end I was able to get all that I wanted, house, retirement and much more. Though I still have my challenges with my ex, David has always been there to guide me and assist me. He is a great lawyer and I will definitely recommend him to others!

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
Working as opposing counsel on a matter with David was challenging and a pleasure. He is an excellent attorney and represented his client well. He was always professional and courteous in the courtroom and in his communications with me.
