David (Dave) R. Badger is a trial attorney, as well as a former criminal and civil litigator. His practice extends to all chapters of bankruptcy for both consumers and businesses. Representing creditors or debtors statewide in North Carolina for the past 42 years. Dave is one of the first attorneys certified as a Trial Advocate by AAJ and board-certified as a bankruptcy specialist by the American Board of Certification and the North Carolina State Bar Association. A member of NACBA, NABT, NACTT and ABI, Dave has served as Chairman of the North Carolina Bar Bankruptcy Section and has been a frequent lecturer on legal issues involving bankruptcy. He has spoken on the interplay of domestic and bankruptcy issues at the NACBA Annual Convention in San Diego and the same topic at the ABI Institute in Amelia Island, Florida.
Dave is widely appreciated for his hands-on approach and empathy for his clients' predicament. Recognizing that the hardest part of the bankruptcy process may be walking through the firm's door, Dave's office is designed to help clients relax. His Zen-influenced, light-filled office loft (home of Target - pronounced Tar-zhay - the office cat) and disdain for business attire serve as a counterpoint to a lawyer who truly enjoys the courtroom, and whose name inspires respect among opponents.
Dave has been AV* rated for outstanding legal ability and high ethical standards for more than 40 years and annually selected to Best Lawyers in America and North Carolina Legal Elite by his peers.
*CV, BV, and AV are registered certification marks of Reed Elsevier Properties Inc., used in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards, and policies.
