Meticulous bankrupt lawyer and truly a Minnesotan

I’m too late for this review since my discharge was granted early January of 2019 but taking advantage of the free quarantine time to show him my appreciation for his work. David Kelly was outstanding throughout the whole process which we started around July of 2018. He meticulously gathered all the necessary documents needed while in consultation with him 24/7 through email. We would meet every forthright at his office and he would explain me in detail every step of the way. We finally filed mid October 2018 and I got my discharge on January 2019. I would highly recommend his services because he was so detail oriented to my case. A fantastic all round bankrupt lawyer.


Satisfied and Appreciative

I cannot express how satisfied and appreciative I am with the work of Dave. I started my online search for a great attorney and that is what I found. Dave's website and YouTube videos were extremely helpful and very thorough. I have to say that what totally made me feel at ease and glad I chose Dave, was how great and thorough his work is. I had a complicated case so Dave met with me every other week for six months until we were 100% ready to file and not once did he make me feel embarrassed or any less than I should feel. He knows the law very well, the challenges we might face and does a thorough job to ensure all is covered and minimize bumps along the way. Dave has a great sense of humor and is just a stand up guy. I am now on my path to rebuilding my life on the financial side and feel great from the relief Dave helped me achieve. You are awesome, Dave! God Bless. Richard Queens.


Excellent Lawyer

Dave Kelly was an amazing attorney. When I realized that bankruptcy was my only option, I didn't know where to turn and I was embarrassed to have to admit my situation.  Luckily I found Mr. Kelly. He was so easy to talk to, he answered all my questions and helped me figure out what the next steps were.  He never made me feel bad about my bankruptcy, but made me realize it is a fresh start. Now, my life is much calmer, the stress has decreased ten fold and I can hold my head up high. I would recommend Dave to anyone needing this type of help because he took a lot of time to get to know me and my particular situation and I felt great about moving forward with my Bankkruptcy. Thank you Dave so much for your help. Amber.

Respectful and Understanding

5.0 stars

David worked with me through a painful bankruptcy. He presents himself in a calm and reassuring manner. David never promised more than he could deliver nor did he promise that there wouldn't be a lot of work, meetings and decisions. The bottom line is that he delivered and we accomplished what we needed to do in a timely manner.


5.0 stars

I hired Dave Kelly to represent me in my Chapter 7 bankruptcy case primarily because his online reputation is solid. As he prepared my bankruptcy petition, I increasingly begin to appreciate the service Dave provides. He met with me in-person on multiple occasions. I feel like my bankruptcy petition was accurately completed because of Dave's willingness to take the time to understand my situation and concerns. I found the bankruptcy to be very stressful and emotional. After all, it isn't fun to be in a situation in which you have to admit that you cannot pay your bills. He was kind when I needed extra time to get the entire fee paid. He guided me through the entire process - start to finish. He even wished me the best in my future endeavors when my bankruptcy was discharged. I strongly recommend Dave Kelly for anyone that is looking for a bankruptcy attorney with experience and top-notch service.



Thanks much

David was the first lawyer that actually educated me instead of just trying to answer the least amount of questions to get the job. His videos on youtube are what attracted me in the first place. Very informative. He took the fear out of bankruptcy while maintaining a healthy respect of the process and possible snags. If he doesn't know the answer, he'll find it instead of making assumptions. Very experienced and connected. I do wish I had minimized my cushion of exemptions better, but it's better safe than sorry.



Hard Times
5.0 Stars


To be painfully honest, I am a prideful guy and filing for bankruptcy is admitting failure. Dave has the rare gift of knowing that you feel that way, without ever making you feel that way. His questions will be direct and your response will not be judged. He actually cares about the well being of his clients to a fault and takes it personal. There are a gazillion lawyers and this process is scary as h!!! But..if you are here you are truly in good hands.



Outstanding service!
5.0 Stars

David gave us exemplary service and attention for our case. He is knowledgeable, professional and gave us a feeling that he truly cared for our situation at all times. I think what sets him apart from other lawyers I have dealt with is his willingness to go the extra mile for you. He makes you feel you are in good hands and he was always a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!
