Areas of Practice
David Binkley has been passionately practicing Divorce, Family Law and Complex Business Law in Metro Detroit for over 35 years. He has gained a solid reputation as an expert in high net worth divorce cases with complex asset structures, including private practices, family businesses, large estates, trusts, inheritances and complicated financial entities. He has had the great fortune of learning the fine art of creatively and constructively dividing complex assets while working in the Business Law arena; a skill one rarely finds in a Family Law or Divorce attorney.
David offers a full range of services to his divorce and family law clients, including custody and parenting time, child support, asset identification, division of property, litigation, asset protection, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements and paternity.
David has an extensive resume’ which includes representation of several members of the PGA and LPGA tour, and being lead counsel in a mass tort litigation that resulted in a $140,000,000.00 settlement. Many attorneys do whatever it takes to stay out of court, while others do whatever it takes to keep a case active; David is no stranger to the court and will do whatever it takes to protect his client. On the other hand, he is equally happy handling an amicable divorce matter that settles quickly and efficiently with no drama. His goal is always to do whatever it takes to serve his client.
David is a trusted advisor to his clients and is committed to being hands on with each and every one of them. He strongly believes in setting goals for his clients along with strategies and tactics to execute those goals. He makes it his practice to educate them about their case so they are well prepared and empowered to make the tough decisions. He takes great pride in knowing that in the end his clients have a complete understanding as to what happened and why. In fact, his clients would say that David is straightforward and honest and will tell you whatever you need to know about your case, even when you don’t want to hear it.
David is highly respected and sought out in Oakland, Macomb and Wayne County. He has gained an AV Preeminent® Rating status from Martindale-Hubbell® for his strong legal ability and high ethical standards, and has been recognized by Super Lawyers® in 2009, 2015, 2016 and 2017.
He is committed to giving back and is an active member of the Christian Legal Aid Clinic. He spent seven years as the coach for the Michigan Mock Trial competition for the Christian Leadership Academy, and in two of those years his teams made it to the State Finals.

David is a devoted, single dad to DJ and Kate, and he knows from personal experience the struggles one faces when a family splits up and one becomes a single parent. Having been through the divorce process himself, David has great respect and compassion for his clients and their families, and he treats them like one of his own.
