David H. Fink is managing partner of Fink + Associates Law. He has more than 40 years of litigation experience, winning important victories in state and federal trial and appellate courts.


He focuses his practice on complex commercial and class action litigation, including business matters, antitrust, consumer fraud, environmental law, intergovernmental disputes, securities fraud, shareholder derivative litigation, insurance coverage and construction contract matters.

David has been selected as a Super Lawyer in Michigan Super Lawyers magazine every year since 2007 and was selected by Michigan Lawyers Weekly as a “Leader in the Law” for 2011. In 2016, 2017, and 2018, Michigan Super Lawyers magazine designated him one of the top 100 lawyers in Michigan and one of Michigan’s top 50 Consumer Lawyers.

David served on the Michigan State Officers Compensation Commission from 2011 through 2014 where he fought for pay increases for Michigan judges.

David is actively involved in civic and community affairs. He served as President of the Bloomfield Hills Schools Foundation and was as a member of the Board of Directors for Jewish Family Services of Metropolitan Detroit.

While David probably enjoys practicing law more than he should, his greatest satisfaction comes from the time he spends with his four perfect grandchildren, three of whom happen to be the children of Fink + Associates Law attorney Nate Fink.
