Dave was extremely professional but more importantly I was treated as a person not a case. He always returned calls and emails in a very timely manner. I would definitely recommend Dave to help with legal needs! -Jennifer S.

As someone who never had a lawyer, David made everything as simple as possible. He is very easy to communicate with and provides all the answers and support you will ever need. If I ever need a lawyer again, David will be my first choice to contact. -Andrew

I was falsely accused of something and had an order filed against me. Ben represented me during court and successfully had the order dismissed. He also went above and beyond to make sure it would not show up on my record. – Brittany.

Possible Overservice of Patron Leads to Fatal Wrong-Way Crash

Rebecca Benson, 22, is facing a vehicular homicide charge for her involvement in a wrong-way crash that claimed the life of Steffanie Leonard, 29, in February.  Police maintain that Benson was driving the wrong way when she merged onto I-65 South colliding head on with Leonard.  Benson is represented by David Raybin, who has provided Nashville authorities with information about where Benson was served that night.  Although Raybin concedes that Benson is responsible for her actions, he also points out that places that serve alcohol also shoulder some of the responsibility when customers are over served.  Likewise, the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission has stated that if someone who is visibly intoxicated is served and then later hurts or kills someone else, the business can be found liable.  Benson, who has “expressed her sincere, sincere regrets to Ms. Leonard and her family,” will have her case presented to the Davidson County grand jury.  However, it could take several weeks for jurors to decide whether there is enough evidence to pursue a trial.
