About McCleary & Associates, P.C.

McCleary & Associates, P.C.

Many law firms say that they offer personalized service, but their actions don't always reflect that when it comes to dealing with their clients. I'm David McCleary, and at my law firm, McCleary & Associates, P.C., I take those words to heart. I want to be your trusted adviser for all of your family law and estate planning needs.

I meet with all my clients personally, one-on-one. This means I can offer a true individualized service to the people in the Grand Blanc and Flint areas. You always meet with me directly, not with an assistant or staff member. You will really become part of the McCleary family when you work with me as your lawyer.

You Can Trust In My Legal Knowledge And Experience

I've been a practicing attorney in Michigan for 30 years. In that time, I've gained a wide variety of relevant experience, including three decades of estate planning law. Creating and updating wills and trusts is second nature to me, and helping people plan for their future is a passion of mine. I'd be honored to assist you and your family with this very important task.

What differentiates us

It isn't common to find an attorney with the history I have with Estate Planning and Divorce.

The dissolution of a marriage can be a traumatic experience. Your attorney or attorneys are well aware of the emotional involvement of the parties. Though we are not behavioral specialists, we try to relieve your anxiety by attempting to assist in solving the problems that you face during this case.

For us to properly represent you, it is necessary for you to give us all the facts concerning your case. We must also know your wishes. We welcome your viewpoints. Withholding information from your lawyer can affect the outcome of your case, so we advise you to be completely candid with us. Remember that a fiduciary relationship exists between attorney and client.

We want to stress that although we will counsel and advise you throughout the case, the final decisions regarding your case must be made by you. Our experience has shown that most divorce cases are settled, which means that the parties reach an agreement that is placed on the court's record. NEVER AGREE TO SOMETHING YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND OR TO SOMETHING YOU FEEL YOU ARE FORCED TO AGREE TO. YOUR CONSENT TO AN AGREEMENT MUST BE VOLUNTARY, AFTER CONSULTATION WITH YOUR ATTORNEY. After an agreement is placed on the record, it is extremely difficult and sometimes even impossible to change it.

As your representatives, we are here to advise and inform you, cite the options and alternatives available to you, process your divorce matter, assist you in decision making, and cooperate with you in attempting to obtain the best possible results on your behalf.

Michigan is known as a "no fault" divorce state; however, the words "no fault" can be misleading. If the parties reach a final settlement on all issues, fault is not a factor. If there is a dispute about property, child or spousal support, parenting time or custody, fault may become an active ingredient in resolving these issues. For this reason your attorney may go over the indiscretions of the parties with you.

Don't hesitate to call me to schedule a complimentary consultation. I can be reached at 810-652-5115, or complete my online contact form. I represent clients throughout Genesee County and neighboring Central Michigan counties from my office in Grand Blanc.

How we were trained

I am a graduate of Oakland University (BS 1980) and the University of Detroit (JD 1983) and has been practicing law since 1984. I am admitted to the State Bar of Michigan and the Federal Bar. I have successfully argued cases of first impression before the Michigan Supreme Court and Michigan Court of Appeals and have taught at Oakland University and Cooley Law School. My objective is to provide clients with high quality legal services in a timely, responsive, and cost effective manner. I lecture in the areas of Estate Planning, Asset Protection, Civil and Constitutional Rights. I am located in Grand Blanc, Michigan. I am a general practitioner with an emphasis on elder law, estate planning, probate, trust administration, divorce, business law, asset protection and Medicaid planning. I provide my clients with the benefits of large firm expertise together with personalized care and treatment. I believe that a close and professional relationship enables me to understand the business context in which my services are sought. I offer mobile services to homebound clients and busy executives.

Why we love what we do

I pride myself on providing personalized service, professional results and 24 hour return call policy.

When people think about estate planning, what often comes to mind is creating a will. While a will is certainly a big part of an estate plan, it is far from the only component that should be considered. The potential for complexity means that having an experienced, thorough lawyer working for you is the key to making sure your voice is heard and your wishes are heeded.

I'm David McCleary, and at my law firm, McCleary & Associates, P.C., in Grand Blanc, Michigan, I'm committed to making sure my clients' estate plans work for them and give them peace of mind about their future. I'll listen to how you want to handle your estate planning, and offer you my suggestions based on my quarter-century of legal experience. I represent clients throughout Genesee County, including in Flint, in all kinds of estate planning matters.
