David Corbett represented us in an appeal in the Washington State Court of Appeals, where he worked on our behalf to reverse a large default judgment. Even though the ultimate result was a split decision, we were both impressed by David and the high quality of his work. Because we are residents of Toronto, Canada, we never met David in person, but he was always available by phone or email on short notice, and consistently responsive to our concerns. He was also very good at explaining what was going on in the case as it progressed. We strongly recommend him to anyone who needs counsel for a civil appeal in Washington.

I am writing this review from the perspective of a client who has a case which has yet to be resolved. Therefore, my review of Mr. Corbett's work on my behalf is not influenced by a favorable or unfavorable outcome.
Integrity and brilliance best describe David Corbett.
He has the unique ability to know what the response will be from his opponent, prior to formulating an argument. This allows Mr. Corbett the ability to know if his argument will be strong or weak.
Mr. Corbett researches the applicable laws and previous rulings on similar cases so thoroughly that he is able to clearly articulate how the law applies to the case at hand. Not all judges and lawyers will research the applicable laws thoroughly. For this reason, Mr. Corbett is able to articulate effectively on behalf of his clients.
He has constantly kept me informed about his research, and his work on my behalf.
I have seen how his work developed because he shared his thoughts with me as he worked on my case.
He has restored my faith in the law, and in justice, regardless of the outcome of my particular case. If there is justice in the modern court system, he will find it.
On the subject of integrity, I have actually seen him with a stop watch in his hand so that he is only billing a client for time that is used on their behalf. I have never known any attorney to be so conscientious. I consider the work Mr. Corbett has done on my behalf to be one of the best investments I have ever made.
I trust him completely, and I highly recommend him.

As a practicing trial lawyer, I have had the pleasure of retaining David as an associate attorney on several cases, primarily to pursue research and analysis of some fairly complex legal issues, and to write trial and appellate briefs. His research and writing skills are superb. And he has a highly developed ability to focus on the issues presented and present them in a clear and cogent manner. He not only "finds the law", but also thinks creatively and prepares well reasoned and persuasive arguments.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I enthusiastically endorse Dave as an appellate lawyer and litigator. We worked together for several years at Graham & Dunn, and I was opposing counsel against him when he joined another firm. Since then, we have been co-counsel on a number of occasions in high-stakes, high-stress disputes. Dave's great -- super-smart, a strategic thinker, a good writer, and cost-effective. He's a strong advocate and an overall good guy. Hopefully we'll be on the same side from here on out -- I wouldn't want to face him again in court!
