Age isn’t everything, but we take pride in being Northern Indiana’s oldest law firm, established back in 1856. Since then, our business has grown, and our team has become ingrained in the communities we serve.

As we seek to mediate disputes and bring about just conclusions to tense scenarios, we realize that we must practice law with integrity and care.
