David Arthur Weick

Senior Litigation Attorney

Des Moines divorce attorney David Arthur WeickDuring Des Moines divorce attorney David Arthur Weick’s time as a juvenile prosecutor, and as a litigator in Veteran’s Treatment Court, he found he was witness to the aftermath of family issues that could have been avoided with sound counsel.

He chose to pursue a career in family law to give timely help to his clients and their children, so that they have a brighter future where they can thrive.

“There are many ups and downs in a domestic case and passions often run high,” Mr. Weick said. “I am able to guide you through the storm with sound counsel and a steady hand at the wheel.”

A family law case is about the future, and not the past. That is what Mr. Weick considers the most important idea to keep in mind through this difficult, and often long, process. While what has happened in the past is important in shaping what you want your future to look like, every decision made should be guided by the question, “Will this make life better tomorrow?”

“I have found that keeping this perspective is the key to a successful family law case,” he said. “Don’t worry if you lose sight of this goal, which is much easier said than done. I will be there with you to guide you every step of the way.”
