David P. Friedrich joined the firm in 1990 following graduation from the Indiana University School of Law
(Indianapolis). In reality, he had been part of the firm for nearly as long as he could remember—his father was the longtime claims superintendent for one of the firm’s clients and David regularly spent time at the firm while growing up.
Like colleagues in the firm, David’s passion is trying lawsuits and had handled more than 100 jury trials by his 40th birthday in cases ranging from personal injury to bad faith defense and products liability. Although he concentrates his practice in litigation, he has a general practice representing public housing clients and handles matters ranging from business representation to family law and probate.
He completed undergraduate studies at Butler University, from which he graduated cum laude in 1987.
His community service includes service on the boards of Wabash Valley Crimestoppers, United Cerebral Palsy, Wabash Valley Goodwill Industries, Riley Recreation League and the District 7 Pro Bono Corporation. He devotes part of his practice to pro bono work for the indigent and was recognized for his outstanding volunteer service by the Terre Haute Bar Association and the Indiana State Bar Association.
David is also a former member of the Board of Directors of the Indiana Pro Bono Commission.David’s hobbies include running, reading, golf and coaching youth sports. He and his wife, Janet, have two children, Ryan and Erin.
