The Story of Hunt Suedhoff Kalamaros is really the story of two law firms. The first, Hunt Suedhoff, dates back to the 1940's. Back then, Fort Wayne attorney Leigh L. Hunt earned a reputation as a knowledgeable and effective trial lawyer. A few years later in 1950, he opened his own law firm, concentrating on litigation and committed to giving his clients the best service possible. Through the years, as the firm grew, it became widely recognized for capable attorneys and a knowledgeable staff.

The second story begins in South Bend, Indiana in 1960 with the creation of Kalamaros & Associates. The firm was founded on the idea of combining traditional work ethic with modern technology and contemporary techniques to best serve its clients. Through the years, it too became known for outstanding service and talented attorneys.

Eventually the two firms with so much in common joined forces. This solidified Hunt Suedhoff Kalamaros as the premier law firm in northern Indiana with one of the area's largest litigation practices. And we are experienced in many other areas as well. We have done extensive work with the insurance industry and have represented many national corporations as regional counsel. Our commercial, corporate and estate services feature experienced attorneys who work exclusively in those areas.

At Hunt Suedhoff Kalamaros, we are still committed to Mr. Hunt's ideal of providing the best service possible and Edward N. Kalamaros' belief in changing and growing in order to do so. We pride ourselves on effective communication skills and our ability to find successful solutions to clients' problems through knowledge, integrity, experience and efficiency.

Insurance litigation is one of the most demanding areas of practice for attorneys. Law firms must be able to represent clients in cases dealing with all types of businesses, organizations and government agencies. It is also imperative to be knowledgeable in many facets of the law because these cases deal with virtually every legal issue. Our representation of the insurance industry has given Hunt Suedhoff Kalamaros a reputation for dedication, resourcefulness and success. We are adept at immersing our-selves in different areas of business in order to provide competent and successful legal service to our insurance clients. As a result, we have become experts in many different areas. We represent the industry as both defendant and plaintiff in cases ranging from employment discrimination to product liability.

Hunt Suedhoff Kalamaros also provides health care law services to a wide variety of clients. Some of the largest health care groups and hospitals in this area trust us to represent them. This area of our practice includes medical malpractice defense, risk management, guidance on regulatory issues and compliance, advice and services in the business aspects of health care practice.

We attend to our clients' personal and business law needs as well. A number of our lawyers concentrate their practice on estate planning, probate administration, estate law and family law. On the business side we represent clients in business organization, employment matters, commercial transaction cases and other areas of corporate law. We also work extensively in the fields of mediation and conflict resolution for corporate clients. Our staff includes skilled lawyers who concentrate in business law, assisting small and mid-sized companies both in their daily operations and representing them as special needs arise. Experience combined with knowledge have made Hunt Suedhoff Kalamaros the firm you can trust when it comes to business law. We are confident that we can find solutions for you in these areas as well.

While many law firms speak of courtroom experience, when it comes to litigation, we are second to none. Hunt Suedhoff Kalamaros has one of the largest litigation practices in northern Indiana. We represent a variety of clients including corporations and individuals in local, state and federal courts. So whether you need representation as a defendant or plaintiff, for personal or business reasons, we can help.

At Hunt Suedhoff Kalamaros we resolve hundreds of disputes each year. All of the attorneys in our litigation practice group, not just one or two, have tried cases in a courtroom. However, trials are not something we take lightly. We only go to court when all other avenues of resolution have been thoroughly investigated and exhausted. Our experience in the courtroom and our reputation for outstanding advocacy make it less likely that your case will end up in the courtroom. However, if circumstances do dictate such action, you want the experience and knowledge of Hunt Suedhoff Kalamaros on your side.

For years we have concentrated on representing the insurance industry. Working with these clients has given us valuable insights into many areas of law. And it has taught us certain disciplines, including efficiency. Our insurance clients demand the most efficient use of their funds possible. You can be assured that the amount of work done on your case will be what is reasonable under the circumstances. When you receive a bill you will know just what we did and why we did it.

We currently operate four offices, Fort Wayne, South Bend and Indianapolis Indiana. We are now located in St. Joseph Michigan. So, we are available wherever and whenever you need us. With a full support staff, we make sure our clients not only receive the best legal service possible, but the best overall services as well.

Throughout the history of our firm we have been consistent in our skills, knowledge and integrity. Our experience has established our firm as a leader in various fields including litigation. All of this, combined with our unique approach to our clients and the talent of our attorneys, makes Hunt Suedhoff Kalamaros the ideal law firm for all your business and personal legal needs.
