Meet Dave

David M. Byrne, Attorney at Law

I have dedicated my time in many ways to giving back to the Newaygo County community. I was given the opportunity to chair the Future of Fremont Committee that worked hard to pass the millage for the new Fremont High School. I coached youth soccer for over 25 seasons and was the Fremont High School JV soccer coach for the 2015 season. I served on The Fremont Area Recreation Advisory Committee, The Fremont Zoning and Planning Committee, as well as being a past president and current member of the Fremont Rotary Club.

Above all my faith in God is what provides me my strength and encouragement to strive for the best for my family, my law practice, and my community. I am a Former Deacon and youth group leader for Church of the Living Christ. In 2011 I was one of the founders of the church “Mosaic of Newaygo County”, for which I now serve as an elder of same.

  • Ethical and Honest
  • Personable
  • Friendly
  • I will customize my services to meet your needs and situation.
  • Close attention to details
