David Crum

David Crum is an attorney and the CEO of US Legal Groups, which oversees practices in Colorado (Colorado Legal Group), New Mexico (New Mexico Legal Group), and Nebraska (Nebraska Legal Group). David asks one simple question of his clients: “How can you come out the other side of your divorce as a better person and a better parent?”


A Precocious Entrepreneur

When David graduated from George Washington University with his law degree, most of his classmates were taking positions with large D.C. law firms and positions in government. Following his true calling, David moved to the high desert landscapes of New Mexico after graduation and founded New Mexico Legal Group at the tender age of 26. One year later he had settled his first high profile federal case and his law firm was off to the races. He began to focus his practice in the area of Divorce and Family law, and eventually created two additional law firms, one in Nebraska (his hometown) and the other in Colorado (which he thought was super cool).

A Reluctant (but effective) Author

In 2016, in response to requests for more information about David’s background, practice philosophy and practice strategy, he wrote the book: Confessions of a Divorce Assassin: What Your Really Need To Know About Your Case, Your Kids and Your Attorney. This book continues to sell like crazy online and is available for purchase at: Confessions of a Divorce Assassin

The Law Firms

As the CEO of US Legal Groups, David has founded and grown three best in class divorce and family law firms: New Mexico Legal Group, Nebraska Legal Group and Colorado Legal Group. David personally recruits and trains the country’s most talented divorce lawyers, who are chosen for their legal skills, their ability to communicate effectively with clients and the courts, and to deliver outstanding results to their clients. Each firm focuses exclusively in the area of divorce and family law, and it is this unwavering focus on excellence that allows the firms to excel in this area of practice.

Divorce Declassified

After two decades in practice, David came to appreciate two fundamental problems with the legal system as it related to divorce and family law. The first was that even though people had retained legal counsel in their cases, they still did not fully understand their rights, how the their cases should proceed, and they were often taken advantage of by their legal counsel, who were more focused on profits than the speedy resolution of their cases. To address these problems, David created Divorce Declassified to guide people through their divorces whether they were represented by legal counsel (Divorce Declassified Classic) or whether they were representing themselves (Divorce Declassified DIY).

Cardinal Concepts

Over their many years in practice, David and his marketing director, Brent Harkins, developed marketing strategies that allowed them to dominate their practice areas. When other firms began asking how David and Brent might help their practices, they created Cardinal Concepts, a marketing firm that assists other attorneys in acquiring more clients and achieving financial freedom.
