I was referred to David Blanchard by word of mouth from other attorneys who respected his expertise in employment and healthcare-related matters. The situation was very stressful as I was new to the area and was nervous about the potential effects of litigation on the rest of my career. Throughout the process, David took time to answer all of my questions and found practical ways address my particular concerns. He was knowledgeable about the nuances of the law as it related to my case and is generally a very caring and approachable person. It was reassuring to know that he was representing (and fighting!) for me. I would strongly recommend David and his team to anyone needing employment representation, and particularly if it involves the health care setting. In the end, I was pleased with the outcome of my case. Having David to represent me made the steps along the way much more understandable and much less stressful.

I am a former client of Mr. David Blanchard, an attorney based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I have known him since he took my employment-related discrimination case in 2010, and it is with pleasure that I recommend him for his professional acumen, skills and qualities.
Since that time, I have found David to be a hard-working, fair, straightforward and knowledgeable attorney, with a wide range of outstanding legal skills. It was a privilege to have had his service for almost three years of litigation.
David has acquired years of experience in a variety of legal areas, including appellate litigation, and clearly is committed to his profession of helping people and his greater community. He is noted for his ability to work well with clients, fellow lawyers, witnesses, judges, etc. He truly cares about the just outcome of his cases and the overall well-being of his clients.
I would promptly call upon David again should I need legal assistance in the future. Should I know of someone who may require an attorney's expertise, particularly with complex matters which require a firm knowledge of the law and its optimal application, I would gladly and without reservation, recommend David first and foremost.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
