I hired David in April 2014 to handle a custody modification with a hostile ex. I literally googled “aggressive attorney Indianapolis” and found David on this site and couldn’t be more grateful. David has done more for me in the last month than my previous attorney did for me in 10 years! My ex represents himself in court, despite having no legal training, and likes to file multiple motions and force hearings he knows will require me to hire representation. I relocated out of state for work and let my teenaged son remain with his father per my son’s wishes. When my son decided he wanted to relocate with me I hired David to represent me in a custody modification, in addition to the support modification filed by my ex more than 6 months after my relocation (despite multiple efforts by me and my counsel to get my ex to agree to a custody/support modification document prior to my relocation). In addition my ex was denying me summer visitation with my son. David went above and beyond trying to get my ex to agree to a temporary agreement on support and visitation so we wouldn’t have a hearing on the support issue, only custody. My ex refused, knowing I would need to drive from out of state to attend, and even told David he “had nothing to lose” by going to court. David told him there would be consequences to forcing a hearing and he proved it! First the judge ordered far less support than he was seeking—and far less than was offered him in the agreement David drew up prior to the hearing. Secondly, David managed to get the judge to order my ex to turn my son over to me for 7 weeks of summer visitation, much more than the two weeks we were seeking in the agreement AND despite the judge initially saying she would not rule on visitation, only support. Thirdly, he proved my ex flat out lied to the judge! When David followed up with a rather sarcastic email telling my ex the dates for my summer visitation he also let my ex know he would seek to recoup my attorney fees if my ex perjured himself in court again. My ex replied that he emailed the prosecutor accusing David of threatening him! There were threats, but they were threats David made good on! He told my ex if we go to court my ex would be walking out of court wondering just what happened, and he was. He told him he was now taking this case personally, and he did. We still have a custody hearing in a couple of months and I personally cannot wait to see what David has in store for my ex. I have every confidence my son will be living with me full time in the next few months and have David to thank for that. In the ten years I have been dealing with my ex I have never felt so confident that justice will be served and that my ex will be exposed to the court for lying, manipulating, and wasting the court’s time. This is the first time in ten years I’ve felt like someone has my back and will not let this person take advantage of me and the court. Until this week, every time I walked out of the courtroom I’ve felt like I’ve been screwed by the system, but not this week. David Steele will get you results. He cares more about his clients getting the outcome they deserve than his bill. He has steeply discounted my rates, charging about half of what he could have, because he knows my ex’s goal is to incur legal fees I have to pay. You will not regret hiring him for even one minute!

SIMPLY PUT, DAVID STEELE IS THE BEST DIVORCE LAWYER IN INDIANA!!! David was my last hope in a 20-month long ordeal where my ex willfully dragged her heels to complete the divorce simply because she knew I wanted to do it expeditiously. I needed someone who was totally no-nonsense, aggressive, and efficient to bring closure to this so that both sides could escape this toxic situation and move on with our lives. In addition to dealing with this type of personality, I was also faced with an opposing attorney who appeared to endorse and embrace her using every legal tool available in order to drag out this case for as long as possible. When I hired David, he immediately made clear in no uncertain terms to the opposing side that he would not let this charade continue, and he didn't. In advance of and at my mediation, he demonstrated his constant pledge to me that he would have my back, and he totally did. He made sure that I was protected in every way, and I was COMPLETELY SATISFIED with the successful outcome of the mediation, and I finally have closure to this long nightmare that has haunted me. I came away with EVERYTHING that I desired. David has an INCREDIBLE talent for detail and strategy. Moreover, David is also the most compassionate attorney I've ever seen. My financial resources and retirement were totally savaged by having to support my ex, and I have a very very modest income due to the nature of my work and the recession. David recognized this, and was VERY gentle in his billing, making huge accommodations to assist my current financial plight. His billing was MORE THAN FAIR. I will NEVER forget his kindness and compassion. His principles, contrasted with what I witnessed with opposing counsel, are uncompromising in wanting to do the right thing and to do it with unwavering quality. His being on the state bar ethics committee is also supportive of that. Highly principled, fair, compassionate, yet when it comes to the legal battlefield (and yes it is a battle!), you could not ask for a more skilled, committed attorney. Quite bluntly, after my absolutely positive experience with this state's preeminent divorce attorney, I would be scared as hell if I was an attorney and saw David at the opposing table. I'll say it again: DAVID STEELE IS THE BEST DIVORCE LAWYER IN INDIANA BAR NONE!
I hired David Steele to defend me against contempt for not paying medical bills, which I never received, and to countersue for visitation with my two girls that I was being denied. My ex was asking for the moon and more but turns out I wound up getting everything I asked for and we were even able to settle out of court. I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome from this case, especially in a state that is not big on Father’s rights. What is even more exceptional? When it came time to pay the final bill, knowing I didn’t have a lot of money, David mentioned to me how he didn’t charge me for a single hour of “his time” on the bill and even gave me a free hour on top of it. He was right, not a single charge from him on any of my statements. He truly cares about his clients and the outcomes of his cases making him the true Man of Steele in my book. If you want someone who is passionate about what they do, a good family man, and aggressive for his clients, you need to look no further. While his firm might charge more than other firms, his is worth every penny if you want to get what you’re asking for and maybe even more.
I contacted David to help me with a custody arraignment. He spent a great deal of time talking with me, and explained everything in detail. David was very knowledgeable on the custody laws, and helped me understand what my expectations should be as the non custodial parent. He was always available when I called, even giving me his cell phone number. He even returned a call to me after he had dental surgery. David also gave me a discount with the retainer, which helped me tremendously. He cares about his clients, not the money. I am very happy with the work David did for me, and wouldn’t hesitate to contact him in the future.
I am very pleased with the service I have received from this legal firm. They came highly recommended to me and now I will pass the word how well I was taken care of by this legal firm.
