Personal Injury / Criminal Defense / Civil Law
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 2016, Isaiah Vanderpool joined the firm as an Associate Attorney. Isaiah attended Purdue University where he obtained his Bachelor’s Degree (B.A., Law and Society) and graduated with Honors.
Isaiah then spent a year working construction until he decided to follow his father and brother into the practice of law. He attended Indiana University, Robert H. McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. Isaiah was admitted to the Indiana State Bar in 2016 and was also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Indiana. He is also a member of the Indiana State Bar Association.
While in Indianapolis, Isaiah gained a multitude of experience in several different legal settings, including having spent time with a highly regarded Personal Injury law firm. These experiences enlightened him on the positive impact that can be achieved when providing quality representation to those who are in need.
