Stephen Unger’s energy and knowledge make him an invaluable team member for clients and colleagues, who significantly value his opinions and advice. His motivation for community involvement stems from his passion in the legal profession, in the communities where he lives and works, and in his faith.

The best advice I could give a recent law school graduate is
become an expert on each new task, and be more prepared than everyone else.

In 2012, I’d like to
spend more time with my family.

The three words that best describe me are
realistic, affable and economical.

My long-term career goal is
simply to be respected as someone who does quality work and provides good legal advice.   

My escape from work is
my kids.

My mentor has taught me
patience. My professional career is not a sprint.  And if you do good work, the rest will take care of itself.    

If I weren’t an attorney, I
probably would have followed my dad into coaching basketball.

In the movie about my life,
my wife says Matt Damon would play me. I’ll go along with that.

  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.
