In Memoriam: David S. Melin, 1975-2019

Our friend and colleague, David Scott Melin, died on February 1, 2019. Dave was a natural

leader in life and in our firm.   Dave is survived by his wife, Michelle, and daughters, Reagan and Jenna.

Dave practiced with RCD for his entire legal career. He was a tireless worker and committed to his family, clients, and friends.

Dave undertook many roles for our firm and accomplished them all as jobs well done. He was greatly respected by the RCD family, his fellow members of the bar, and by his many clients.

He will be missed by all, but memories of Dave will continue to inspire everyone who knew him.

RCD Attorneys Named to 2018 Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite

Five attorneys from Rayburn Cooper & Durham, P.A. have been recognized by their peers as 2018 “Legal Elite” in Business North Carolina Magazine’s annual list.

Al Durham – Bankruptcy

Ross Fulton – Litigation

James Gatehouse – Business

David Melin – Litigation

Jack Miller – Bankruptcy

In addition, Rick Rayburn previously received the distinction of being named to the “Legal Elite Hall of Fame” for Bankruptcy Law.

Legal Elite Methodology

Each year, Business North Carolina sends ballot notices to every member of the N.C. State Bar living in North Carolina — asking each a simple question: Of the Tar Heel lawyers whose work you have observed firsthand, whom would you rate among the current best in these categories? Voters are not allowed to vote for themselves. They may select members of their firms only if they pick out-of-firm lawyers in the same categories, with the latter votes weighted more heavily.
