Consummate Professional
Mr. Branch provided representation for me during a mutual separation situation with my former employer. He not only made sure that my rights were fully protected, but also provided sound counsel and advocacy for other reasonable considerations related to the separation agreement.

Wonderful experience. Knowledgeable and responsive!
David Branch provided legal advice and guidance during a difficult situation in my life. I found him to be experienced, responsive, knowledgeable, and honest. While working with Mr. Branch, I felt as though my situation was in adept and trustworthy hands, and he did not steer me wrong. I could not have been more pleased with the outcome. I don't have enough words to describe how amazing the experience with this firm was. They work very hard to make sure you have winning results. I could not have asked for better services. From the moment I first called until my case was over, I was at ease that I has made the right choice. I would highly recommend Mr. Branch to anyone seeking legal representation that is fair, honest and will keep your best interest and unique needs at the forefront. Should the situation arise, I would not hesitate to seek representation from Mr. Branch again and continue to refer him to friends and family.

amazing lawyer
I have worked with David Branch for almost 3 years now and he is the most professional and trustworthy lawyer that I have had the pleasure of meeting. Before finding him, I spoke to a few lawyers in DC. What stuck out to me about Mr. Branch is that he really took the time to look at all the evidence and facts to see if had a strong case and when deciding to move forward with me- made me feel positive and confident with my case. His rate of success is very high and it's easy to see why. He has gone against some really tough lawyers, but he does not get intimated and always has his eyes set on the bigger picture. I have told Mr. Branch this, and will tell anyone who asks me about him, he is the best decision I have made when choosing an attorney to represent me. He is persistent, has integrity, and he is always trying to help. If you need an attorney please try to get his services. He will fight for you until the end.

They Listen
I contacted Mr. Branch after speaking with many different attorneys and sharing my story. I can enthusiastically say that Mr. Branch listened and made me feel like he cared. In a stressful situation, whether you think you have a case or not, at best you want to be heard. Ms. Ryder, is a spirited 'go getter" and you definitely want her on your team. He runs a professional office and he listens. They care! and will listen attentively and try to help, without dismissal. you might not receive daily updates, but you can trust the work is being done.

Help with Title IX Case
Mr Branch helped us feel better almost immediately. Not only has he helped us navigate the Title IX process- he represented us when the principals husband tried to intimidate us out of coming forward. His firm support staff was incredibly helpful and attentive. it was such a relief to no longer feel lost and alone in the system.
