David Bolt


Before working as a Minnesota personal injury lawyer and wrongful death attorney, David Bolt represented insurance companies, railroads, and other personal injury defendants for 11 years. This defense experience provided David with an insider’s knowledge that continues to benefit clients who have experienced devastating injuries due to another person’s or corporation’s negligence. David represents clients in states across the country, from Washington to Florida.

David’s focus is exclusively personal injury law, accidental death, and wrongful death. While his legal work has resulted in financial compensation above $1,000,000 for some of his clients, his compassion is what has really set him apart from other Minnesota personal injury lawyers. David has been known to stay in touch with his clients to ensure they are not just financially secure, but emotionally supported as well.

When David is not working on cases or in court representing his clients, he enjoys spending time outdoors, traveling, hunting, camping, snowboarding, mountain biking, canoeing, and fishing. He has served on the boards of non-profit organizations, including as President of the University of Minnesota Vision Foundation and other community-based organizations.

David is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Macalester College and received a law degree with honors from the University of Minnesota. An extensive list of awards and certifications illustrates his talents and achievements in his field. He has been voted one of the state’s top 25 personal injury lawyers and named a “Super Lawyer” in Minnesota Law & Politics. American Law and Leading Attorneys named him a “Leading American Attorney,” and Martindale Hubble rated him with the highest possible rating of A-V.
