MORE THAN 40 YEARS IN THE LEGAL PROFESSION AND THOUSANDS
SERVED. Combining his legal system knowledge and experience, with his love of history, his passion for the arts, and his dedication to teaching is what makes David Oeming the effective attorney, mentor and community liaison that he is. He brings this depth of knowledge and drive to his clients’ legal challenges as well as to the other attorneys and service providers at Zolton Law Offices.

“Listening is the key. I listen FIRST, and then I help people to understand their situation and their options. I want them to learn while we work together on a solution based on their understanding of the choices,” Oeming says.

Along with extensive experience, it is this spirit of teaching that Oeming brings to the Zolton Law team, as the “oldest” new member. In the first quarter of 2016, Oeming’s long-time practice is merging with Zolton Law. His combination of experience and connections make him the perfect complement to what he sees as a strong and high-energy Zolton Law team who hold a congruent approach to counseling clients.


“I’m looking forward to being a mentor to the lawyers and staff, and to working together as we collect information and resolve issues for our clients. I have complete confidence in the team here, and I know they will serve all of our clients well. My clients can be confident that they will continue to receive solid and effective legal advice from me and with the entire team here at Zolton Law Offices.” Oeming concludes.

Oeming and his wife, Therese-Marie live in Freeland. They have three grown children, and four grandchildren. He sees joining a larger law office as an opportunity to balance life a bit, and perhaps partake in more of his outside passions. Oeming is an avid outdoorsman, he enjoys hunting and fishing. He enjoys music and theater, particularly the Pit and Balcony Theatre where he has volunteered extensively. And if he ever found himself with downtime, he loves a good read in American History!
