“When I purchased investment properties in Denver, Dave Ratner carried out all related legal matters so ethically and with such care, skill and professionalism that he has become our primary business and family legal consul. Dave is fair, honest, and always accessible. He is a skilled attorney, a trusted advisor and, in addition to his legal acumen, Dave understands the  conflicting requirements of our personal and business issues. It is this combination of expertise, business savvy, personal attention, and fairness that separates Dave from other lawyers.”

“Dave Ratner brings a lot of music industry experience to the table, having cut his teeth as a tour manager for several years prior to obtaining his law degree. His diverse background gives him the perspective needed to advise entrepreneurs, visual and music artists, and creatives of all types. We’re lucky to have someone like Dave as a resource in Denver – he could easily be in L.A., New York or Nashville.”

“Dave and David at Creative Law Network are top notch. As a creator I am less than organized and seldom think about the details of my business. Having these guys on my team has really given me a level of professionalism I wouldn't have been able to provide for myself. They make the process painless and they will spend the time making sure the work you do with them is valuable to you and your business.”
