David Volman is a well-respected attorney with a private legal practice in Shelton, Connecticut. With over thirty years of professional experience, he maintains a broad-ranging practice in order to better serve his community but specializes in real estate, family law, foreclosure, and bankruptcy. Mr. Volman is a dedicated member of the American Bar Association and the Connecticut Bar Association, and was the recipient of the Avvo Client’s Choice Award in 2015 and 2017.
Though he came from humble beginnings, Mr. Volman was destined for success as an attorney. He explained:
My father never graduated high school, and he wanted something more for my brother and me. He encouraged us to be lawyers.
With his sights set on a career in law, Mr. Volman majored in legal studies and political science at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, where he graduated with many honors, including magna cum laude, in 1984. He was then accepted to Western New England University, where he was a merit scholar and a Law Review candidate, and obtained his Juris Doctorate, cum laude, in 1987. Mr. Volman spent the first two years of his professional career as an associate with Kleban and Samor, P.C., and then quickly transitioned to partner at Yudkin Young & Volman, where he worked until 1994. During this time, he gained the wide-ranging legal skillset for which he is sought-after today as a kind, competent, and adaptable private practitioner.
Mr. Volman founded Volman Law in February of 1994 and for the last twenty-five years has developed a reputation for thorough client advocacy and genuine care for each and every person who walks through his door. Though he spends much of his time dealing with the financial intricacies of issues like bankruptcy and foreclosure, Mr. Volman is also well-versed in cases involving personal injury and DWI, making him a one-stop-shop for almost any legal issue. For his dedication and unparalleled skill, Mr. Volman has been recognized among the 10 Best Law Firms in Client Satisfaction by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys™.
In order to more comprehensively serve his community, Mr. Volman carefully notes trends and changes in his areas of specialty. The economic downturn of 2008 still affects his clients statewide, and he explains how his practice has evolved:
Unfortunately, the economy is still terrible in Connecticut. Ten years later, we’re still in a recession. I used to do a lot of real estate closings—over 1,000 a year. Now, I do fifty—and it’s all bankruptcy, foreclosure, and divorce. It’s really changing the way families exist here. It’s the same people who bought houses fifteen years ago who are getting divorced today.
Undaunted, Mr. Volman plans to continue serving his clients in Fairfield County, New Haven County, and Bridgeport with the empathy and legal acumen for which he has come to be known.
