WORTH EVERY STAR
I reached out to David Shevitz Aug 2022 needing legal advice on how to deal with my current lender. He responded to me within 24hrs and at NO COST gave me legal advice and several names/numbers of mortgage brokers of people who could help me refinance my loan. I was able to successfully refinance with a broker that he recommended and I was able to save my house and prevent foreclosure by getting into a new loan. Most lawyers I contacted wanted a fee just to consult about my issue OR never responded back, but David was different and I'm so grateful for his advice & contacts he provided for me when I needed someone the most. Thank you David for helping people at the time they need it MOST. I highly recommend David without hesitation.

I WISH THE REST OF THE WORLD WAS AS EFFICIENT AND EFFECTIVE
David helped me take care of an important legal situation. He did everything right and on time. His fees were reasonable and totally worth it. I could get him on the phone when needed. More than once he got me an ethical and legal outcome that was better than I expected. He really knows his stuff. He was always patient with explaining things to me. I highly recommend him. Thank you, David.

I can't recommend David Shevitz highly enough! He is very caring and very expert in bankruptcy. He patiently explains every step along the way, answers all questions, and is there for support at every step in the process.

David Shevitz
David Shevitz is the best in the business. He is an outstanding attorney and incredibly skilled in his field. He took my very complex legal situation and handled it with grace and excellence. This was a devastating and emotionally draining time in my life and David (and Daisy) handled each of my calls and questions with compassion and patience. This is a rarity in the world of law. David’s command of his craft brought me and my family comfort during an extremely stressful time. I would not have made it across the finish line without David’s guidance and expert knowledge. He walked me through every step of my case with clarity and kindness. I highly recommend David Shevitz and his firm.

Very knowledgeable Attorney
David got me out of a really bad spot. A law firm had bought out a credit debt and has filed suit against me. People knocking on my door, constant mail and phone harassments demanding payment or possible garnish of income. David listened, explained my options, and suggested the best possible steps to move forward. He gained my trust overtime, and I would highly recommend his service. Thank you Atty. Shevitz.

Best law firm in LA!
What can I say about David and Daren. Back in 2016, four law firms rejected my labor claim vs.my former employer that owed me 50k. They said labor claims were hard to win and it was a waste of time. But David and Daren took on the challenge and accepted my difficult case. My former employer sold the business and refused to pay my claim. Then Covid came and made the chance of me getting any money even more unlikely. But David and Darren did not give up even when I thought it was becoming very bleak. They ultimately found my former employer committed fraud and lied under oath through bank statements they received through a subpoena. A very smart move by my lawyers. Ultimately my former employer was forced to settle. Through negotiations they won me more than 50% of my claim in July 2022. I can't recommend enough the services of David Shevitz and Daren M. Schlecter. They are amazing attorneys that will fight for your case to the very end. You won't find better lawyers in the Los Angeles area. Thank you David and Daren! You rock!

100% The Best
This law firm is professional, knowledgeable and very responsive. I communicated often with the staff and they helped us navigate a complex system . We never felt rushed off the phone or as if the questions we had were unnecessary. Without hesitation, we recommend him and his team to anyone considering the need to file for bankruptcy. David and Daisy worked with us to make sure we had the best opportunity. Again, we are 100% confident recommending him and his team to anyone considering the need to file for bankruptcy. .

A burden lifted. . .
David was easy to talk to, patient, generous with his time, and clearly explained what the whole process was about, I felt I was in capable hands and appreciated how much work his law firm puts in to each individual case. Very impressive. Now I can breathe again.

Easy transition!
David took over my case when my original attorney took a break from law to have a baby. The transition was seamless and he and Daisy led us through to the end in an expeditious and professional manner. He responded to every question in a timely manner, notified me immediately of important issues regarding my case, and I recommend the office highly.

Very ethical and professional lawyer
David Shevitz and his firm literally saved me from a horrible situation I inadvertently found myself in financially. He spoke with me patiently to explain all my options and helped me make the best decision for my situation and he turned out to be a bit of a "savior" for me. He and Daisy - in his office - made the legal process so easy and positive out of a negative situation. They gave me a second chance financially and it's made a huge difference for me personally and professionally. He was very affordable, prompt, comforting, always able to be contacted, and very professional. I will refer anyone I know to him in the future.

Shevitz Law Firm
Shevitz Law firm purchased the law firm we were working with mid case and we were worried, but pleasantly surprised. David and his staff were very helpful, accommodating and were able to assist us with some problem solving. Bankruptcy is a very challenging process and there is so much to consider, but we felt at ease with our case in their hands. Our outcome was favorable and would recommend this firm without hesitation.
