  • Sibylle Grebe

    I have known David Lee Rice for many years as an attorney in the South Bay area. I have come to trust his work as a highly skilled and well respected tax attorney. I have on many occasions referred my clients to him for tax, complicated estate planning, complex trust and probate litigation matters and Medi-Cal Planning because I know they will receive quality legal representation in their matters.

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Mr. Rice for years. He is a top-flight attorney who does right by his clients. I have sent him people with very difficult tax issues, and I have always gotten positive reports back about his work. Also, he's a good guy.
