"We retained Dave Place on a catastrophic injury case where we needed help with a significant ERISA lien. Dave was professional and accessible throughout the process and ultimately able to negotiate a significant reduction of the lien. We won’t hesitate to use Dave for future lien issues and highly recommend him to others.

"Dave Place helped my client in a medical malpractice case negotiate the reduction of a large lien in a difficult case. Dave is very knowledgeable about the law and practicalities of handling such liens. He and his staff did a great job in a timely manner. I highly recommend his firm."
David Proffitt, Esq.
"I have used the Place Firm a few times in the last year. He has been quite successful in getting reductions on health insurance liens in cases in which the insurers refused to reduce (ERISA liens). I wish I knew about their services in the past and I will certainly be using the firm in the future. It’s always been money well spent."
Bill Shirer, Esq.
"I was confronted with a very difficult ERISA lien problem. The adjuster wanted full reimbursement which would’ve left the client with virtually nothing on a very difficult medical malpractice case in which we were lucky to get anything. I contacted Dave, knowing that he would be able to help - and boy did he!
He was able to reduce the lien which tremendously helped the client. I highly recommend Dave. He is the most knowledgeable person I know on lien resolutions."

Extraordinarily overjoyed and happy...feeling so positive and fulfilled and fortunate!
Wow.....words cannot even begin to describe what a euphoric relief and rewarding peace of mind you and your incredible, uplifting, inspiring work, including but not limited to, kind, compassionate, caring, understanding, and high quality sense of caring 'bed-side manners' along with technical acumen has provided! Tonight, after approximately a year and a half, I will finally be able to sleep so sweet and sound, like a baby."
Pro se Plaintiff

He worked diligently on behalf of the client and got a reimbursement reduction that was beneficial to and appreciated by the client, at a very reasonable fee.

"Dave is the 'expert' that ERISA experts reach out to for analysis, but even better, he will explain the issue in words that anyone can understand. His services are a value to our clients, and peace of mind for the attorneys."
John D. Ayers, Esq.
"Let me say first I really enjoyed your contribution to the seminar on Resolving ERISA Liens. I am in my 45th year of practice and I have learned to listen carefully to former 'insiders,' and you, Dave, did not disappoint. I was bouyed by your enthusiasm, and you had me from the start because you made it personal, AND IT IS PERSONAL! Rawlings does get super rich on the backs of injured people. My biggest satisfaction is defeating or greatly shrinking these claims of ERISA plans."
