Portrait of David Bolt, AttorneyDavid Bolt


Before he began working as a Minnesota personal injury attorney, David Bolt represented insurance companies, railroads, and other personal injury defendants for 11 years. This defense experience provided Bolt with an insider’s knowledge that helps him give quality representation and results to people who have experienced devastating injuries because of another person’s or a corporation’s negligence.

Bolt works exclusively on personal injury claims to help his clients get back to their pre-accident lives. His experience has enabled him to collect financial rewards above $1,000,000 for some of his clients, but his compassion is what has really sets him apart from other Minnesota personal injury lawyers. Long after the case is settled, Bolt has been known to stay in touch with his clients to ensure they are not just financially secure, but emotionally supported as well.

When Bolt is not working on cases or in court for his clients, he enjoys spending time with his wife and four children. His favorite recreational hobbies include traveling, hunting, and fishing. He has served on charitable boards, and has been the Chair of the Anoka Area Chamber of Commerce.
