Review David Rayfield

About Me

David Rayfield graduated with a B.A. from Rhodes College in 1994 and a J.D. from the University of Alabama in 2001. Following his graduation from the University of Alabama, David began his legal career by opening his own office with a law school classmate in Phenix City, Alabama. He enjoyed a general practice with an emphasis on civil litigation for his first five years in practice before joining Pope, McGlamry, Kilpatrick, Morrison & Norwood, PC in January 2006. While with Pope McGlamry, David focused his practice on business litigation and representing individuals that had been injured, damaged or otherwise harmed by others. 


In July, 2015, David joined the law firm of Waldrep, Mullin & Callahan, LLC as a partner with a continued focus on civil litigation.  Licensed in both Alabama and Georgia, David is currently focused on practicing law in the areas of commercial litigation, tort liability, personal injury, and wrongful death.  He is also very active in the legal community, currently serving as Treasurer of the Columbus American Inns of Court, Treasurer of the Columbus Bar Association, and as Vice-President of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, 2nd Congressional District.  David also previously served as President of the Columbus Trial Lawyers Association (2013-2015), President of the Chattahoochee Bar Association (2009-2010), and President of the Russell County, Alabama Bar Association (2005-2006). 


David and his wife Stuart, have 2 beautiful daughters, Vivian and Celia. In his spare time, David enjoys Alabama football (Roll Tide!), golf, and reading. He also serves as an active member of St. Paul Methodist Church in Columbus.​
