Unknown Attorney | Dec 30
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Dave Rohrbach is an exceptionally intelligent and knowledgeable attorney. I have worked with Dave on several cases, and his ability to pick out the exact legal principle or argument needed at exactly the right time was consistently impressive. Dave is also extremely patient and calm in the face of highly stressful situations or vexatious opposing counsel. On top of all that, Dave is an impeccable legal writer. I highly recommend him."
Litigation Attorney | Dec 30
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Dave is a great lawyer. I have worked along side him and have hired him as my counsel. I had wonderful experiences in both respects. I highly recommend him."
Litigation Attorney | Dec 30
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Dave is a very intelligent, highly skilled litigator. His thoughtful and measured approach to all aspects of a case is a model for achieving the best possible outcome for the client. I had the pleasure of working with him at our previous firm and was his co-counsel on a civil dispute. I learned a great deal from him about maintaining leverage without applying a "scorched-earth" approach, formulating effective discovery requests, and entering settlement talks armed with the strongest possible position. What a client should be looking for in a litigator is someone who is prepared to go to trial, but knows how to avoid it and achieve a better result than you could expect in Court, if and when possible. Assessing and implementing the right strategy takes skill and the right temperament, both of which Dave has in abundance. I would recommend him for any civil, commercial or business dispute."
Litigation Attorney | Dec 30
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Dave has quickly become my firm's go-to referral for complex commercial litigation and arbitration matters. Dave is not just a brilliant litigator -- he is a genuinely decent person who takes a pragmatic, no-nonsense approach to practicing law which clients greatly appreciate."
