About Me

I am a Founding Partner, at Hiden, Rott & Oertle, LLP.   I am a firm believer in communication.  I pride myself in keeping clients involved and informed in every step of their case.


I also know that it is equally important to communicate with the opposing party and their lawyers, as they are the gate keepers to resolving your claim.


While litigation and trial is always an option, I have been extremely successful in resolving our clients claims at early stages in the process, while being able to fully maximize our clients settlements.  The reason for this high success rate is preparation...preparing your case early in the game, so that trial is an option and not merely the only avenue.


Because in the end, delays prevent you from getting on with your life and focusing on the positive aspects that involve friends, family and travel, which offers great peace of mind.


Not to worry, in the event your case will not informally resolve for a great result that we believe is right for you; your injuries; and the case, we will take your case to trial.  


Contact me at your convenience, as I make myself extremely accessible to existing clients, as well as perspective ones.  I have a phenomenal track record.  You will be glad you contacted me.

  • Michael Ian Rott

    I have worked with a lot of lawyers over the years and quite honestly have met few lawyers that can match Dave's persuasiveness. I have seen Dave take medium sized cases and settle them for monstrous settlements. I have also seen Dave take cases that have been turned down by other lawyers and turn them into serious settlements. If you are looking for a lawyer that's smart, communicates well with clients and settles cases for top value, you need to contact Dave Hiden.
