I contacted David when I was being threatened with felony indictment for a first-time, nonviolent drug offense. He was the only attorney to answer my call (out of four) and immediately provided a thorough evaluation of my circumstances and clear description of his rates. He mentioned that more inexperienced lawyers may antagonize LE by battling the charges, but for this case he would advise cooperation and bargaining (which worked out very well). He advised me to consider all options, but his reviews spoke well and I hired him almost immediately for legal counsel.
The first step he took was to request an autobiographical account and detailed summary of all relevant events in order to thoroughly understand my situation. He was extremely experienced--both in law and in understanding the culture and attitude of the specific LEA involved--and knew the best ways to interact with all parties.
David worked urgently and was available at any time of day as events unfolded. He provided clear advice and guidance for all steps of the way. He kept in continuous contact before a meeting with LE, ensuring that everything was prepared and accounted for. His meticulous attention to detail, rapid action, and wealth of experience made me feel secure to have him as my counsel. He acted as my liaison to LE to ensure that I wouldn't be harassed or misled. I believe his reputation and character played a large part in the respect afforded to him and subsequently me. At times late into the case I was a bit unsure about the status of everything, but I felt confident that he was on top of it all.
With David's help I successfully avoided criminal charges. I believe his history of experience with the people involved was incredibly important. He has a connection with the District Attorney and spoke to him personally about my character: a good person who made a mistake. Without David's counsel I may have ended up with a misdemeanor indictment: meaning more expensive legal fees, a criminal record, and punishment and/or probation. I (and my friends and family) can't thank him enough.

David Raybin was the best possible lawyer to handle my particular case. He represented me in a professional yet compassionate manner and was very forthright in his assessment of my case.
I was involved in a serious incident that could have changed my life for the worse and Mr. Raybin turned it around for me and got me the best possible outcome. He also provided invaluable guidance regarding what steps I should take to help my court case and at the same time confront the issues that led to the incident.
I am very gratefull for his advice and representation. And, as others have noted, his standing in the legal community earns him the respect and cooperation from everyone he interacts with, both inside and outside of the courtroom.

David Raybin has always treated me with respect, answered my questions,and promptly communicated personally via phone, or email when I had a genuine concern.Having professionally worked with other attorneys for years, I always looked forward to meeting with a true subject matter expert whos area of expertise is law. David Raybin is a lawyer that other lawyers go to for advice and respect his opinion.The courts respect David Raybin, and other lawyers with his firm.
One day as I walked into court with David Raybin I observed a few attorneys stop in their tracks to converse w David,with one uttering "watch this this is gonna be good".I felt like I had a Marine combat unit with me. Ultimately,my case was dismissed,my career was preserved and the court knew the facts. I never thought my case would be settled in the hallway leaving me wide open for a repeat performance by the party Mr. Raybin put back into the corner... There's plenty of attorneys covering a lot of ground, but when you don't want to hear a soapbox presentation telling you the fight will never end,it will take years and millions to resolve, this is what you do;Pay for a pro that's not afraid to take a truck head on, and yank the engine out while its moving..........David Raybin is that pro who sets a standard that others should follow.

David brought decades of experience and intimate legal knowledge to my case and provided honest and relevant advice to achieve a positive outcome. David is well respected in the legal community and was recommended to me. He was personable and never trivialized my questions or concerns, and always made time to communicate. Hiring David has led me to successful outcomes over the past two years.

David Raybin is what every defense attorney should be; fair, aggressive, accessible and consistent. He handled my case with the utmost professionalism and knowledge and most importantly never ignored my concerns or questions. His reputation as an accomplished and knowledgable attorney proved very helpful when working on my case with others. He was able to provide me with a chance that I felt I deserved but was certain that no one else would feel I did. He took the time to understand who I am as a person and not simply as a client. He believed in me and continues years later to do so, as well as reply to any questions or concerns I might have in a very timely manner. I truly feel that I would not have the opportunities I have today if it were not for Mr Raybin. I cannot recommend his services enough.

In 2008 my husband and I hired David Raybin to represent my husband at his parole hearing. Mr. Raybin stood by my husband throughout his incarceration for almost 7 years until my husband finally obtained his freedom. Mr. Rabin is caring, compassionate and very understanding of the many aspects and problems that people in prison have, as well as their families. Mr. Raybin went above and beyond all that we could ever ask for. He is a true God send. I would HIGHLY recommend him for whatever your legal battle may be.

David was recommended to me by a family friend associated with the DA's office in Memphis as the best criminal defense attorney in Nashville. Upon speaking with David I decided to retain his services, and could not have made a better choice.
The first thing I noticed when speaking with him was his candid answers, and never telling me it was going to be okay. He thoroughly reviewed the case, gave me an outline of possible outcomes, and never promised the world.
The biggest surprise was his promptness regarding communication; coming from the business world I was used to sending a few hundred emails per day and receiving quick responses. David routinely replied to emails well past working hours no matter what day of the week it was. Feeling connected and staying connected to David made me feel better about the situation. He diligently worked the case and kept me in the loop as events developed.
At the actual pre-trial conference it was immediately clear how influential David was in the Nashville legal community - upon entering the courtroom he was met with smiles and handshakes by fellow lawyers, court officers, as well as the presiding judge. He was able to negotiate an outcome even better than I had ever hoped for (again because he never promised the world) and left me feeling blessed at the stroke of luck I had in hiring him.
After the case concluded, he continued to follow up to ensure I didn't have any other questions, but more importantly to continue to make sure I was making good decisions.
David is a top notch lawyer, highly effective communicator, and extremely well respected. Anybody that needs a top-notch lawyer couldn't find a better one. All of my interactions over the past 3 months with David make me his biggest possible advocate.

Around two years ago I was faced with the horrid situation of being accused and charged with something that I did not do. Needless to say, this was devastating to myself and my family to even be in this situation. We were extremely scared, extremely frightened, but determined to fight for my innocence. My family and I could not be more thankful that my life was put in the hands of David Raybin as my attorney. His knowledge speaks for itself, but what you may not see from the outside is that in my case he was relentlessly working at whatever hour of the night needed, he went above and beyond to make sure I was extremely well informed, and he did so in a manner that I knew he very much cared about my well being throughout the whole ordeal and even after. Not to mention, because of his diligence and competence of how the system works, he was able to head my case off at the pass getting the charges dropped. To say that we were ecstatic is an understatement. I, as well as my family, we will be forever grateful to David Raybin and his team for what they did for us.
