David built his career serving clients throughout central Indiana in various legal matters. At CCHA Law, David represented clients in family law, real estate, general civil litigation, business, trust, and probate administration matters. The breadth of his knowledge and expertise, along with his advocacy for his clients, made David a valued member of the CCHA Law team.

After graduating from Franklin College in 1969, followed by completing his J.D. at the Indiana University School of Law in 1973, David set off on establishing himself and building a successful career in the practice of law. He was given the ‘AV Preeminent’ Peer Review Rating by Martindale-Hubbell, indicating the highest level of professional experience, and belonged to the Indiana State Bar Association and the Hamilton County Bar Association.

During his professional career, he was a Board Member of the C. James and Mary Lou Wilson Charitable Trust Foundation, Board Member of the Indianapolis Senior Citizens Center, the Founding Chairman of The Third Masonic Learning Center for Children, and served as a member of the Administrating Council of the St. Marks Methodist Church.

Alexander Pinegar, managing partner at CCHA Law, shared remarks at the event recounting their work together. “You are a former employer and mentor to Eric Douthit, Steve Lutz, Jenni Hughes, and Jessica Wingate. I look at their practices today and how vibrant and strong they are, and in many ways, they are building upon fifty years of your work, legacy, and dedication to clients that you’ve shown over the years,” said Pinegar. “So we’re really grateful not only for your last 14 years here [at CCHA Law] but the last fifty years of what you’ve built because it is carried on today.”

CCHA Law thanks David for his commitment to serving his clients and CCHA Law with unwavering dedication and expertise that bettered the entire community for half of a century.

To honor David and his retirement, CCHA Law awarded a local art studio, The Carmel Art Education Studio in West Clay, $10,000 which will provide needed art supplies. The art studio offers classes instructing over 100 students each week, including children and adults. David himself is an artist, and you can view one of his paintings inside the CCHA Law office and on the website.
