For his career-long dedication to protecting the rights of Indiana’s older citizens and furthering the field of elder law.
Frick, a senior attorney with Indiana Legal Services, Inc. and director of its Senior Law Project, has been advocating for the rights of elderly Indiana residents for most of his career, whether in the form of helping these residents secure Medicaid benefits, serving as an ombudsman for nursing home disputes, or educating attorneys on their legal rights.
“People tend to turn to Dennis because he is such a master of the law,” says private practice attorney Claire Lewis, who preceded Frick as director of the project before starting her own firm. “He’s extremely generous with his time,” says Ronald Dyer, who has practiced elder law for fifteen years.
Frick joined Indiana Legal Services after graduating from the University of Chicago School of Law in 1979. He is a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and a past chair of the Indiana State Bar Association’s elder law section.
