David Drwencke

Founding Partner of DRD Law, LLC

David R. Drwencke is the Founding Partner of DRD Law, LLC. He has committed his career to the singular focus of criminal defense. Mr. Drwencke takes pride in working for those individuals accused of crimes and doing so in a passionate and non-judgmental way. His clients will often hear him say, “I am not worried about what the State may accuse you of; I am focused on what – if anything – they can prove!”

David knew he wanted to be an attorney from an early age and set out to prepare himself to one day manage his firm by working with and for some of the best-known attorneys in Illinois and Michigan. Even before entering law school, David began his legal career as a Judicial Law Clerk to the now retired Rudy J. Nichols at the 6th Circuit Court of Michigan, where he witnessed hundreds of trials, countless motion arguments and learned how to defend his clients in both bench and jury trials properly.

Known best for his larger-than-life presence in the courtroom, David has earned a reputation as a ferocious litigator, a wizard of evidentiary procedure, and someone who does not back down from a fight.

Outside of the courtroom – a rare occasion for Mr. Drwencke – he is an avid sports fan and loves to learn more about cutting-edge technology that he can use both for the firm and in his private life.
