Unbelievably AMAZING!
I cannot thank Mr. Rencher for taking on my case with elder neglect for my mother after being abandoned mid- case by a different attorney. Time was of the essence, and I couldn't find anyone to help me for months but Rencher Law Group did and made me feel at ease instantly. Resolved my case and I didn't have to appear at all. I give Mr. Rencher and team 10 stars and I would call them again if needed at the drop of a hat. Thank you so much!

Best Lawyer in SF
I worked with Anh and D.L and they were amazing!! Both are extremely responsive and diligent. They truly care about their clients and it shows. Both of them did everything in their power to make sure justice was served in my case and I’m so happy with the services they provided.

OUT OF THIS WORLD!
LET ME TELL YOU. This is one lawyer who puts his money where his mouth is. I don't know about you, but I detest people who cater to your feelings so you don't get hurt. Not this man! He'll tell you things like they are, so you know what ground you stand on. You'll know your options, your possibilities and expectations with/about your case. He stays the course, hell or high water. You can tell he has a passion for his job and walks the talk. He listens, he *knows the law*, and if there is something he's not familiar with he will acquaint himself with it before he even considers giving up (that might seem unnecessary to say but when you think of the typical lawyer who will ghost you because either your case is not promi$ing enough or they're not immediately familiar with the law concerning your situation, this man is a breath of fresh air). He won't force you to choose an option, but he'll give you his opinion on what's best for you and he'll tell you why. He definitely went way beyond the extra mile for me (particularly because he’s on the other side of my state’s map). His staff has been nothing but kind, helpful, caring and professional. On a scale of 1 to 10, this firm is a 20 :) In Spanish, we say of someone who follows through and is this laser-focused, "No quita el dedo del renglón" (Doesn't lift his finger off the line being read). If you're looking for someone trustworthy, of good judgement, who perseveres, is confident, even-tempered, intelligent and driven, someone who'll go to battle for you, THIS IS YOUR MAN. His character is incredibly well-forged. I’m incredibly happy to have found him and gotten his help. I can’t say enough good things about him and his staff!

Highly highly recommend
I worked with DL in two cases and both times, he was a great help. He is available, knowledgeable and professional. More importantly, he has a good heart and has the best interest in his client. His team is easy to work with as well. Highly highly recommend DL.

Excellent Attorneys
The Rencher Law Group is absolutely amazing! The staff is highly experience, very professional and caring. When no other firm would take our mothers elder abuse case because the statute of limitation had run, they stepped in with total transparency. The Rencher Law Group took a very aggressive approach from the start pursuing every avenue possible to ensure a successful outcome that resulted in a six (6) figure settlement for our family. They also re-negotiation a Medicare lien that brought more money back to us that helped pay for my brothers funeral services. You see, having a great attorney is key to any litigation. This firm is Top Shelf and I highly recommend using them. Thank you so very much Mr. Rencher for all that you have done for my family. You are truly a GOD sent. Catherine Gregoire

Successful settlement
I was rear-ended and injured in a hit and run accident, but I was fortunate enough to get the license plate of the car that hit me. The other insurance company accepted fault, but they were unwilling to make me a fair settlement offer (they offered $500). My case was a small one, so it was challenging to find an attorney to represent me. Mr. Rencher and his team took my case, and they did an excellent job representing me every step of the way. The system moves very slowly, but they never gave up. Mr. Rencher was heavily involved in the resolution of the case, and he clearly and patiently explained each step. I also appreciated the excellent preparation work that was done in order to be ready for deposition, mediation, etc. In the end, we reached a fair settlement for all sides and that would not have been possible without Mr. Rencher and his team. Thanks very much!

My DUI Case
Asking Mr. Rencher to help me on my DUI case was the best decision I could of made. I didn't know what to do or where to start but Mr. Rencher knew exactly what to do and went straight to work. Him and his team answered every question I had about the process and helped improve my understanding of what to expect. I highly recommend Mr. Rencher, he helped ease my frustrations in a very difficult time. Thank you!

Excellent negotiator that reduced my out of pocket expense by half
After finding myself at fault of a significant injury accident, I sought help from the Rencher law group to help me with negotiations with injured parties. Mr. Rencher and his group did an excellent job reducing my out of pocket expense by half. The staff at Rencher law group were extremely responsive to my requests and I do consider them as my go to people in the future. It was not very easy to find someone that is willing to help when you are on the wrong side of a potential injury law suite. Most attorneys I contacted did not find my case attractive and did not want to get involved.

A Good First Legal Experience
I was dealing with an issue where a doctor had fraudulently prescribed drugs under my name as the patient. I was able to explain the situation, and Rencher Law Group was understanding and explained some options going forward without getting too complicated with legalese. Every step along the way was clear, and I never felt like I was being taken advantage of. As a client, you might have to contact them to get an update on your case, but they’re fast to respond. I would not hesitate to have them represent me again.

DL Rencher is an outstanding attorney in the community, and has excellent knowledge in his field. I'd recommend his services for anyone needing legal assistance in personal injury, DUI, or DWI.

Forever thankful, Forever on speed-dial
My immigration lawyer referred me to DL when my car got totaled in a 2011 due to a hit and run by a drunk driver who ran a red light. I was young and the accident not only brought financial hardships but it also triggered an anxiety disorder that will forever linger in my head. DL took my case with no hesitation and made my first ever criminal-defense experience a very smooth one. Recently, this past 2014 I was rear-ended and being that I was pregnant and my baby's movements stopped for several hours after I immediately thought of contacting him and again, DL took my case and promised a successful outcome. I am extremely appreciative of his kindness, ethical ways and undeniable talent as a lawyer. Through both cases, DL was informative, understanding and never made me feel as if my case was in the back burner. His associates are great, especially Stacy. They absolutely will always get a recommendation from me. Thank you so much guys. Your hard work and dedication will never go unnoticed.

#1 Lawyer , I very highly recommend DL's services!
DL handled 3 insurance cases for me. I was inexperienced as I had never been in such a legal situation; meanwhile being kept in the dark about these 3 cases, to my disadvantage and my insurance company's benefit. Having no knowledge of my rights and needing help, I was referred to DL. DL made sure my insurance company kept my best interest in mind, and he made sure the end result was also in my favor, not my former big name insurance company's favor. That was not the case before I sought DL Rencher services! I very highly recommend DL Rencher Law Group services! I do not and would not go anywhere else.

Health Insurance Case
I needed a life changing medical procedure, and my health insurance company was denying me coverage of what I rightfully deserved. I felt I had no one to turn to, and that is when I heard about D.L from a close friend of mine. D.L took matters into his own hands, and assured that everything was going to be okay and he was going to fight until they approved of my medical procedure. It didn't take long, and D.L succeeded. I am forever grateful and will never forget his kind and genuine gestures in helping me.

Let them handle your case! Takes away your stress!
I was in a rear end accident that lead me to need my car fixed and got me into several doctor/chiropractor appointments. Obviously I was not at fault as I was stopped at a red light while a Jeep crashes into my rear. Their insurance company paid for my car damages but denied to pay for my medical fees. They gave me the run around for more than a year. I hired a lawyer in SF, who tried to help me but had no success. I almost gave up, as time was running out before the last day to file a claim with the insurance companies. They constantly ignored my calls, and just made me feel like giving up. Finally, I met David and expressed my stress of the matter and he instantly called his office and handled the situation quickly! They were professional, prompt, and confident. Within a month or two I received payment from the insurance company! I was so shocked and surprised that we have won! I was so close to giving up! If you need a quick, reliable, and caring attorney, David and his office is the place to go! They make you feel comfortable and ease your stress ! I have also referred many close friends to him, and they too have had success and happy results.

The Best Lawyer
Dui's can be very tiring, time-consuming, and all-around difficult to deal with but thanks to D.L. and The Rencher Law Group my experience with this whole process was worry free knowing that I was in good hands. D.L. listened to my case and let me know that he was here to help me and get me the best deal possible. Having that peace of mind was key for me being that I was already going through a tough time in my life. I no longer saw D.L. as just my "attorney" but as a friend who was truly going to help me out. Due to the severity of my case I was looking at a lot of jail time and there was no way I was going to leave my 4 year old son, but thanks to The Rencher Law Group jail wasn't even an option! I am now able to go back to my to my son and every day life. I would highly recommend The Rencher Law group. Thank You! -Juan Magarin Jr.

Thank You Rencher Law Group
Hi, I am writing this review to thank Rencher Law group (Kevin and Ryan) and Mr Rencher personally for defending me against being convicted of a DUI. I found Rencher Law Group by accident on the web after a night in the Santa Rita County Jail. I was angry, upset, and humiliated that I got arrested for a DUI while parked with the intention of sobering up. The police officer that arrested me appeared nice on the scene like he wanted to help me, and I complied with all of his requests but looking back I realize he was just obtaining information to build a case against me. This police offer even had the shameless attitude to tell me I should not fight the case otherwise the consequences would be worse. Rencher law group heard my story and represented me in court , and it appears the charges will be dropped. This is great news! I have a baby on the way and money is tight. I now can put this incident behind me. Thanks again Rencher Law Group! I highly recommend their service.

Wonderful Lawyer
D.L. helped my son in a criminal case. Needless to say, it was an extremely stressful and upsetting situation, but D.L. and his staff made us feel better about everything during the long process. They were very kind and understanding. My son was very comfortable with D.L. and trusted him implicitly. D.L. is extremely professional and knowledgeable. D.L. and his staff tirelessly researched and fought the issue; he knew when to be aggressive and when to back off. D.L. was amazing, and got my son's serious charges dropped to a much lesser charge. He saved my son's future, for which we will be forever grateful.

Grace under pressure.
Ernest Hemingway defined courage as "grace under pressure”. That is the most fitting expression to describe the last D.L. work on for me. He knew to keep a level head against what seemed to be insurmountable odds. This was a pretty high profile case, but D.L. made sure that I was OK with everything that was going on. His ability to balance aggression with meekness was very useful. D.L. also made it a point to involve me in my own defense inline with my wishes. I would give him detail about the events and he took time to listen and understand where another lawyer I spoke with on this matter made it seem like a cookie cutter case. Maybe it was such a case to any lawyer out there, but as a client, I am sure that none of us want to be seen as a case number. I can appreciate his follow through and the time that he took to make sure that I understood what was going on to my satisfaction. Although it is my wish to never need D.L.'s services again, I am glad that he is there in such an event.

Outstanding Lawyer!
D.L. took on our case on a contingency basis, after others had expressed no interest. We had a case against Regence Blue Shield Insurance and a surgeon, and were being pressed for around $18,000. Mr. Rencher was always sympathetic to our position and spent many hours fighting with a large corporation on our behalf. He kept us advised of the progress by bringing us into the office and making sure we understood the latest correspondence and how we would make the next step. We both felt reassured every time we visited him, that we had entrusted our case to a very reputable and competent lawyer. And in the end, he won the case for us! It cost him a lot more than the fee he had charged, and he could have taken further payment from us, but he declined. He just asked that we give him a good recommendation to any friends or family in need of a lawyer, and how could we refuse to do that?! At times I thought our case was hopeless, but Mr. Rencher had the tenacity and aggressiveness against the Big Insurance company, that you would want in a lawyer. I would hire him again in a second. It was truly a David vs. Goliath story with us, and in our case, David was victorious! He is one heck of an amazing lawyer!!!
