"I was rear-ended while stopped at an intersection. The auto accident left me with serious injuries and significant pain. I claimed these injuries to the responsible party's insurance. After seeking treatment and receiving a diagnosis, I approached the responsible party's insurance to handle my claim. The claims adjuster said that due to legalities surrounding the case that they would put my case on permanent hold. I told them how this injury affected my activities of daily life and my productivity. I told them how the financial burden of medical bills is stressing my finances. The claims adjuster said nevertheless that they will not pay for any of my claims. They also told me they had cancelled the check they had sent to my mechanic for repairs to my car. I ended up having to pay the repairs out of pocket because the insurance company refused to honor the check they had written.

I knew it was time to hire a lawyer. On recommendation of a long-time friend, I sought out Mr. Pivtorak for a legal consultation. He was incredibly reassuring from the beginning of the case until its successful conclusion. Mr. Pivtorak was able to use his expertise, experience and wherewithal to find creative solutions to my uniquely difficult case. He fought tirelessly for me every step of the way. From countless hours on the phone with doctors and insurance representatives to dealing with incredibly resolute and hostile opposing counsel, Mr. Pivtorak brought his acute legal mind and every weapon in his legal arsenal to bear in resolving my case. The insurance company initially offered practically nothing. Their first offer would have barely covered my medical expense up to that point. The insurance company made no offer for future interventions which my doctors had said included extensive surgeries.

To address these injuries and the future medical interventions Mr. Pivtorak judiciously sought out and retained professional resources to assist him in specialized areas of legal and medical practice. It made me feel very reassured to know I had a team of professionals backing me up during preparation for trial. Mr. Pivtorak is able to capture the subtleties of each case and understand its unique challenges. After extensive negotiations the insurance company was still unwilling to offer a reasonable amount. Undaunted, Mr. Pivtorak increased the pressure on the insurance company, showing them that he was prepared to take my case all the way to trial. As a result, less than two weeks before the trial Mr. Pivtorak successfully negotiated an amazing settlement that made me feel completely compensated for my loss. I would highly recommend Mr. Pivtorak to anyone in a similar situation."

"I am taking the time to write this review because David Pivtorak took so much time with me when I needed it the most. I don’t want to be too long winded, however, I do think I should explain how I was feeling as someone in need of a lawyer for the first time. For me, the decision to finally talk to a bankruptcy lawyer came after much self-degradation, especially for finding myself in this position in the first place. If you are reading this, then you too may be feeling some of the angst I was experiencing. I was embarrassed, humiliated and thinking I was less than a man for contemplating filing for bankruptcy. I was very cautious in reaching out and having to expose the truth of my financial situation with someone. However, I did and I regret only one thing. I should have called David sooner, much sooner and that’s the truth. I had mentally put myself through hell for months (12) in trying to figure it out on my own. I had become someone else, even to my friends I was not the happy, confident person I am known to be. I made an appointment with David and met him at his very nice San Francisco office. I was a little anxious to say the least, but I should not have been. The relief of having shared my financial burden with him was profound. In his confident, take all the time you need demeanor he listened, enquired and advised me in such a non-judgmental way, I actually smiled again. He made me feel much better about my position, and expertly guided me through the bankruptcy with great care and support. Through the process, he answered all my questions promptly. He telephoned me and emailed me to keep me up to date. David succeeded in getting a successful outcome to my case and I am very appreciative of that. He is the best, a consummate professional lawyer, bar none. Without the slightest hesitation and with some fervor, I highly recommend David Pivtorak at Law. Don’t wait like I did, contact him and you will feel much better. Thanks for reading."
