Frederick F. Eichhorn Jr., a retired attorney who served as president of the Indiana State Bar Association in the 1980s has died.

Born in 1930 in Gary, Ind., Eichhorn earned his law degree from Indiana University and served in the United States Air Force before joining the Hammond practice of Lawyer Schroer & Eichhorn in the 1960s. The firm was reconstituted as Eichhorn Eichhorn & Link in 1978, and he served as the firm’s managing partner from 1977 until 1994. He practiced with his brother, William.

He retired in 1996 and moved to Bloomington with his wife, Judy. Eichhorn was a member of the Indiana University Board of Trustees from 1990 to 2005 and served as board president from 2002 to 2005.

Eichhorn served as general counsel to Northern Indiana Public Service Co. from 1977 to 1992, as a police commissioner for the city of Gary, and was elected president of the ISBA in 1985.

A celebration in his honor will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday at First United Methodist Church, 219 E. Fourth Street, Bloomington, Ind.

A statement on Eichhorn & Eichhorn’s website says, “We will miss Fred’s wit, warmth, and the gentlemanly way in which he conducted himself within and without the firm.”

  1. For many years this young man was "family" being my cousin's son. Then he decided to ignore my existence and that of my daughter who was very hurt by his actions after growing up admiring, Jason. Glad he is doing well, as for his opinion, if you care so much you wouldn't ignore the feelings of those who cared so much about you for years, Jason.

  2. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  3. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  4. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  5. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.
