About Dave - Minnesota Bankruptcy Attorney
Hello, 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 AVVO.com. At the time of this writing there are twenty-three reviews about me at AVVO.com, all with five star ratings, along with nine endorsements from other lawyers.
Right now there are twenty-three five star reviews posted at Google, and one review on Google that gives just one star. After the one bad review was posted, business actually got better. Maybe having a bad review proves that all the good reviews are real. Google's rating is a 4.8 out of a possible 5.
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 aren't that interesting. For those who like to know such things, the rest of this page is devoted to some trivia.
