David has been my attorney in my divorce case since my initial attorney saddled me with an anchor of a judgment that has hung around my neck since 2012.
He was forthright in telling me what it would take to untangle the mess that I was in and put forth a set of steps that it would take to get things back to a level playing field.
He has fulfilled those steps after setting realistic expectations and dealing with a judge that appears biased toward woman and easily swayed by stupidity.
David can reign a client in who has "pie in the sky" wants or expectations and has worked hard on my behalf. He knows how the system works and knows the tendencies of most attorneys, judges and referees within the Oakland County system as well.
He is an advocate without coming across as an overbearing "shark", which works well within the system. He is known within the area and by those within the FOC system, but not with a reputation that would drive people away before he even shows up for a motion or meeting.
David can stick to his position and your needs and fight anybody that he is put across the table from, as long as those requests are reasonable and can actually be achieved.
I would recommend David to anyone. I would recommend that you hire him from the starting point of any divorce proceedings, but he is just as good to bring in after things have already begun. He can easily take over for a useless, uncaring or hack lawyer that has not gotten the job done.
If you need someone to be the best advocate you can have sitting next to you (and you are not shooting yourself in the foot to hurt your own case) then look him up and hire him as your attorney.

Having had one of the nastiest divorces in history outside of Michigan, I hired David to handle the custody and parenting time portion which was left to be determined when my ex moved there. I have NEVER dealt with a better, more honest, caring attorney. In fact my spell check just questioned the word attorney after those adjectives.
David was very upfront from the beginning, did a great job of setting expectations, and was always extremely accessible. His communication was outstanding, as no email ever went unanswered, or phone call un returned. And more importantly, he did not charge me for every phone call, or email. Having had my divorce attorney actually charge me for an hour because "he was up in the middle of the night thinking about my case" this was truly refreshing.
All and all I can not say enough about David's integrity, work ethic and professionalism. He is a great attorney, who I am hoping to never have to work with again :}

David has turned an absolute nightmare of a fight into a much more tolerable experience. Not only has he fought tirelessly for us, but he is the only reason we have custody of the children. Prior to him we had a horrible lawyer that literally let their mom kidnap the kids. David has gone above and beyond getting us the kids back, getting custody and has helped us deal with every road block and bump along the way, on top of cleaning up our previous lawyers mess. He has communicated thoroughly with us every step of the way and clearly laid out on the table for us what we should expect at each and every turn this fight has taken. David is beyond excellent, and it is with out a doubt, he is the only reason we not only have the children and our sanity. He even handled her false accusations and intentional road blocks with poise and knowledge. In addition he was smart enough to keep a close track of communication between himself and other lawyers, which helped immensely in court. We can not speak highly enough of David!

i retained David Sucher for my divorce in 2014 and was extremely pleased with his legal services. He is remarkable with communication and created an environment of assuredness and knowledge that made me feel safe and protected while going through the legal process. His knowledge and experience of the legal process of divorce was evident throughout, evidenced by his excellent organization and attention to detail. When dealing with an emotional divorce involving children, you want an attorney whom you feel is doing his/her best in your interest and arguing for you professionally yet compassionately. I would not hesitate to recommend David to anyone needing an attorney for a divorce. His professionalism, knowledge, warm personality, and true support for his clients, I believe, is unmatched.

David was my 4th (and last) Attorney I retained during a HIGHLY contested divorce/custody battle. Prior to David all 3 legal counsel left me with nothing less than a debacle! No other Attorney I spoke to wanted to even meet to discuss the possibility of taking over the "mess." Not David Sucher! His response "I'm intrigued; Can you meet me tomorrow?"
After meeting with David I knew he was the attorney I needed! David's demeanor/responses let me know that he not only welcomed a challenge; was HONEST in stating "I cannot re-invent the wheel; however, I'll try my best to turn the table!" That was 2 years ago.
He still is fulfilling that statement!!!
Through my case that has been nothing less than pure hell; David is/has been a Saint!
SO HERE IT IS; IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AN ATTORNEY THAT IS:
* A "BULLDOG" in the courtroom
*Writes Motions; responses; pleadings; APPEALS with GRIT
*Truly cares about his clients (it shows in his writings; and in court)
*ALWAYS returns your calls promptly (even while on vacation)
AND HATES TO LOSE
David IS THE ONE YOU NEED!
Trust me I've had my fair share; just wish I came across him first.
In my opinion David is the best Family Law Attorney in Oakland, Macomb, St. Clair and Lapeer County PERIOD!
I cannot Thank you Enough David!

David was my divorce attorney. He did get me divorced in the end as I imagine cannot be too difficult for any lawyer. He did only do just what was needed to get by. I was receiving unemployment and had to pay for my ex's lawyer and child support in then when we shared custody! We than later went to court to resolve the child support and agreed that nobody would pay. Well for some reason the FOC didn't update their info since they are still charging me. I contacted David for advice and he basically washed his hands of the matter and blamed it on Wayne County's messiness. He said I'd probably have to file another motion to clear it up. Thanks for nothing! If you're looking for a mediocre lawyer who will "get the job done" hire this cheeseball!

David helped me through a horrible divorce. Not only was he always available by phone..even on the weekends, he never nickeled or dimed me. Why people pay these huge retainers fees for these high end lawyers is beyond me. The law is the same regardless. David always had a way to balance me out when my emotions got the better of me. I would recommend David to anyone going through a divorce. His kindness and great sense of humor helped me through some dark moments but the fact that he cared more about me than my wallet was priceless!

David represented me years ago when I was ending my marriage. I had to pay my ex off, with contingent to selling my house, when the market plummeted. David said as long as you have your house on the market. There isn't anything he can do about it. David was wrong! My ex took me back to court, and I had to get a home equity loan to pay him off. I wasn't able to receive alimony. The excuse was I have a degree in Criminal Justice, and can a get a job in that field. So wrong! My ex paid 69% of the ortho bill. He was never required to pay any dental bills for my son's. I can't touch my ex pension. I would beware, and find another attorney!!

David currently represents me in a custody case. He is fair and more importantly ethical. He is my third attorney and by far the best and most knowledgeable. It is unfortunate that I wasted so much time and money on the others. Now David is not only dealing with current issues, he is also tirelessly trying to fix the mess made by the two previous attorneys.
Don't hesitate to retain David Sucher for your family law case. You won't regret it.

David Handled a FOC judgement that was being made against me that was false. The case was dismissed and the matter was straightened out. A very easy experience
