David J. Busscher joined Henn Lesperance PLC in October 2016 after beginning his legal career as a Research Attorney with the Michigan Court of Appeals. He graduated in the top 10% of his class at the University of Illinois College of Law, where he was also a member of the Order of the Coif, an Associate Editor of the Elder Law Journal, and a recipient of the Rickert Award for Excellence in Service. Mr. Busscher strives to provide exceptional legal analysis, wise counsel, and zealous advocacy for our clients. Mr. Busscher is committed to practicing law with professionalism and integrity, recognizing that even in the most factually contentious cases our clients are best served by treating opposing counsel and parties with respect. Although he enjoys the opportunity to fully litigate a case, he seeks prompt and favorable resolution of claims for our clients at every stage of litigation. As an associate at Henn Lesperance, Mr. Busscher has worked on a wide range of cases and issues. He has drafted pleadings, motions, and briefs; developed litigation strategies; and engaged in extensive discovery practice, including depositions and motion hearings. He has also prepared legal memoranda advising clients on issues of law. Mr. Busscher has a particular affinity for health law, and has garnered experience working on and advising clients with various State and Federal regulatory matters. When not practicing law, Mr. Busscher enjoys spending time with his wife (a law librarian) and the couple’s baby (November 2017), traveling, and playing outdoor sports. Mr. Busscher is also actively involved in his church as a deacon, praise team singer, and children’s programs volunteer.
