Detroit Lawyers

Ottenwess, Taweel & Schenk, PLC


Founded On Successful Advocacy For Medical Providers

Managing partner David Ottenwess has practiced law in Michigan for over 28 years. His practice has been grounded in medical malpractice defense as well as other general litigation matters, which shapes the nucleus of his current practice. David co-founded the firm initially known as Wulfmeier and Ottenwess, P.L.C. in 1997, and has been the managing partner as the firm has evolved and grown.

The firm's initial expertise in professional liability defense and general litigation soon began to broaden into the business side of medicine, as the constantly shifting regulatory environment demanded the addition of healthcare transactional expertise. Today we have successfully merged the litigation and business side of healthcare related matters, which includes billion-dollar healthcare clients in addition to individual physicians, professional partnerships, clinics and various hospital systems throughout Michigan.

Beyond healthcare law, David Ottenwess has also developed an expertise in the field of public utilities. He served as Special Master to help resolve the 36 year old Detroit Water and Sewerage Department environmental compliance litigation. In addition, our practice has expanded into the arena of government relations where we serve the needs of a diverse mix of public and private clients.  Attorney Matthew A. Schenk has extensive local government experience having served in Executive leadership positions within both Wayne County and the City of Detroit, including the Detroit Water & Sewerage Department.
