About the Firm

Probably every law firm believes that it is unique - we know we are.

The unique perspectives we bring to our clients' legal requirements results from many factors. While our main office is located in downtown Indianapolis and focuses on all sizes of businesses and public utilities, we also have an office in a county on the edge of the Indianapolis metropolitan area where we are used to dealing with the day-to-day problems of individuals as well as small businesses and community organizations.

A substantial number of attorneys in the firm devote most of their efforts to serious personal injury and complex litigation matters, while other members of the firm are heavily involved primarily in utility and other business and regulatory matters. The firm also practices in certain "niche" areas, such as education, health care and government relations, but all of the firm's practice areas complement one another. The perspective our business and transactional lawyers bring to our litigation section complements our litigation section, and the sensitivity to individual client's needs, trial tactics, and judicial processes and practices have enhanced the ability of the attorneys representing business clients to best advise them concerning disputes.

Some firms prosper by "leveraging" associates to achieve growth in numbers and profits. While Parr Richey Frandsen Patterson Kruse LLP's associates ensure that the firm continues to develop and serve its clients at the lowest possible cost, clients served by the firm can be comfortable in knowing that a partner with years of experience will be involved in critical decisions and actions.

We are still a mid-sized firm after almost 100 years by design. For a relatively small firm we have a wide range of practice areas, all of which we believe complement one another and help us in providing the services required by our clients. And while we believe our size now best fits our practice and our clients, we will grow as necessary to meet client needs just as we always have.

Parr Richey Frandsen Patterson Kruse LLP knows that settlement of disputes is a preferred objective, whether by mediation, arbitration or direct negotiation. In fact several of the firm's partners and associates are trained and experienced mediators themselves. However, what also sets Parr Richey Frandsen Patterson Kruse LLP apart from other firms is our century of trial experience. We know when matters should be tried and when they should be settled; we are well-prepared to go to trial when needed and are not afraid to do so.

Among the many other things we are proud of is that much of our business comes from referrals from other attorneys, and that as "lawyers' lawyers" we are often called upon to partner with or represent other law firms. Virtually all of our partners have been recognized by professional, community or other organizations, and we like to think of that not just as an honor, but as being beneficial to our clients, our communities and our profession.
