About Dave - Minnesota Bankruptcy Attorney


Minnesota Bankruptcpy Lawyer Dave KellyHello, I'm David Kelly. Most people call me Dave. You might say I've been around the block. I've been practicing law for over 40 years. It's work I enjoy. Helping people is satisfying. In a survey at Martindale-Hubbell, the oldest and most respected lawyer directory in the U.S., I've been rated "av." This is their highest rating. I have a "Superb" rating (10 out of a possible 10) at At the time of this writing there are twenty-five reviews about me at, all with five star ratings, along with nine endorsements from other lawyers. 


Right now there are twenty-nine five star reviews posted at Google, and one review that only gives just one star. I hate having a bad review, but I noticed that business actually got better after the one bad review was posted.  Maybe having a bad review proves that all the good reviews are real. Google's rating is a 4.9 out of a possible 5. Meanwhile, a site called Expertise lists me in the top 24 lawyers serving Minneapolis.


It seems that Google removes the reviews after they are a bit old, so I always appreciate fresh reviews there.  Compared to the reviews, I suspect that the specific details of my personal history such as the following aren't that interesting.
