Grand Blanc’s Premiere Estate Planning & Divorce Attorney
David M. McCleary at McCleary & Associates, PC

We are a general practice law firm with an emphasis on divorce, family law, wills, trusts, trust administration, probate, estate planning, asset protection, business law, real estate, serious personal injury and criminal defense. We provide our clients the benefits of large firm expertise together with personalized care and treatment. McCleary & Associates believes that a close and professional relationship enables us to better understand the needs of our clients.

At McCleary & Associates, PC, our objective is to provide clients with high quality legal services in a timely, responsive, cost effective manner. We utilize state-of-the-art computerized legal research and office technology which provide the firm and its clients significant advantages in the amount of time required to efficiently complete a project.

Why I charge an initial consultation fee. Many people are naturally curious about the law, but are not necessarily serious about taking immediate legal action or they may simply not be interested in actually hiring a lawyer. Without an initial consultation fee, too much of my limited time is spent educating people that are simply curious but have no immediate need or desire for legal services. By charging an initial consultation fee, I limit appointments to people who are serious about seeking a solution and who are ready to proceed. The initial consultation fee is a minimum of fifty dollars ($50.00) for the first 30 minutes of my time and does not include any document review.

This policy does not apply to up to a 1 hour consultation for estate planning clients that have completed the estate planning questionnaire, divorce clients that have completed the divorce intake form or serious personal injury clients. These forms are available at my website.

Payment of the consultation fee does not constitute an agreement for the firm or David M. McCleary to represent you.

Please pay the initial consultation fee when you complete and return the Client Intake Form.
