About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

I specialize in legal planning for Colorado families, including wills and trusts, probate and estate administration, asset protection, llc formation, and residential real estate law. I am a Colorado native (since the age of 4 anyway). I am a graduate of the University of Colorado at Boulder School of Law. In my free time, I like to spend time in the outdoors skiing, fly fishing, biking and hiking with my wife, two children and dog.

Great, helpful attorney
Mr. Rich took my child support case without knowing if we would ever collect a dime. He worked tirelessly for 14 months until I finally received my first child support payment. I had given up any hope of ever receiving anything. He had to work with Social Security who would only respond via US mail. I applaud his efforts and don't know many attorneys who would pursue this without receiving any payment until the case was resolved.

Non-parental custody experience
As a non-parent, I was very apprehensive about pursuing custody of my nephew, who had been living with me for three years. Dave was the perfect choice. While being comfortable with his legal knowledge, there was the big benefit of the guidance to keep a level head and not get bogged down in the needless fighting that can become such a complication in custody issues. I'm happy to say that the outcome of the case ended with a result that is best and balanced for the child involved. I think my experience would have been a lot more difficult without Dave!

Working with Dave Rich
Dave helped us with our estate planning and wills/living wills, which we had been procrastinating on doing for years! We were overwhelmed and daunted with the thought of tackling all of the decisions, options and paperwork. Dave made it actually go very smoothly and was an amazing help. He did a lot of "hand holding" and provided us with great and helpful information. I would recommend him to anyone needing legal help.

Dedicated, Diligent, Professional, and Available!!
Dave Rich is phenomenal! My battle took just over a year but he stuck with it & showed his dedication in fighting for what my children & I needed. I'm a single mother with limited income, Dave takes proper steps to keep costs low. He is very dedicated and diligent! The opposing party and his attorney were very difficult to work with, but Dave pushed back and showed he can stand up to the challenges that were presented to us. Every challenge was met by a proper rebuttal backed by logic and facts that could not be argued. Dave was even able to achieve being awarded fees from the opposing party in one instance! This really helped us out and reduced my costs. I'm very pleased with Mr. Rich's responsiveness & commitment to helping protect ,my family's needs. I had limited time available to discuss matters with him during business hours but he took time after business hours to talk with me about the issues that needed addressed. I have worked in a law firm myself before and have never found an attorney to be more open and available than Mr. Rich! I couldn't have asked for a better attorney to help me in such a difficult time! I'm so very grateful for his coaching during the

Stopped communicating with us.
I contacted David regarding setting up a will and trust. Everything sounded fine. He responded to us on June 6th with forms that we needed to fill out and return to him. We filled them out and returned them to him on June 9th. No response from the 9th to the 24th. I called office and left a voicemail. Week passes w/o response. I called his cell phone and left a voicemail. Week passes w/p response. ... I called a different lawyer.
