Prior to joining Yates Law Firm, Rich worked as a Deputy District Attorney for the Sixth Judicial District Attorney’s Office in Durango, Colorado. As a result of Rich’s diverse experience with the DA’s office, which involved daily interaction with the public and law enforcement, as well as regular courtroom appearances, he has developed a keen ability and tenacious approach to tackling even the most difficult coverage and client issues with a sense of conviction and understated self-assurance.
