The greatest decision you'll ever make!
My family and I have been working with David for over a year and throughout this stressful time his level of professionalism, knowledge and patience has left us with ease and confidence that we hired the right person for the job.

Credibility you count on
Most top flight attorneys have similar skill sets so honesty and responsiveness are additional traits that are important to me. David's credibility, caring and personal attention gives one excellent legal representation in the hands of a friend.
Posted by Lance | January 7, 2015
Extremely Competent
My experience was exceptional. He kept me well informed throughout the entire process without me having to continually try to ask. The outcome was also exceptional!
Posted by Diedra | December 31, 2014
Perfect, genuine attorney!
David Rash is amazing! He worked on our case tirelessly and never made us feel like just another client. He's empathetic and did his best to keep us comfortable and informed at all times. Working with him was a pleasure and I would recommend him without question.
