Since 1980, Dan Vanderpool has been an attorney or judge practicing in the Courts in the State of Indiana.
After graduating from Indiana University School of Law, Dan opened his own firm, serving as a private attorney until he was elected Judge of the Wabash Circuit Court at thirty years of age. He then served for 18 years on the bench, in a court of general jurisdiction. During that time he presided over approximately 150 jury trials; and , many, many hearings too numerous to count.
Those trials and hearings included matters dealing with family law, personal injury, criminal law, juvenile law, real estate, contracts, corporations, child services and a host of the other issues that face us in this modern world.
In 2005, Dan decided not to run for re-election, hoping instead to be of more assistance to his own family by once again becoming a practicing attorney. Thus, Vanderpool Law Firm PC was born.
In 2011, Benjamin Vanderpool joined the firm as an Associate Attorney. Ben graduated from Purdue University in 2008, and from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in 2011. While in law school, Ben was always on the Dean’s List, and received other honors for his efforts. Ben worked summers in the firm, gaining experience in the practice of law.
As a young man with a family, Ben understands how modern-day pressures affect the present generation, giving him fresh insight into problems that can lead to the need for legal services. His caring and comforting advice can help you when you need it most.
