I am a native of Fort Wayne, Indiana. I attended Homestead High School and graduated from Indiana University in Bloomington, completing my Bachelor of Arts degree in Forensic Studies in 1978. I graduated from the University of Dayton School of Law in 1981.
Upon graduation from law school, I served as an aide to U.S. Senators Richard G. Lugar and J. Danforth Quayle from 1981-1983. I then practiced law in Fort Wayne from 1983-1984 with Cappelli & Loomis, focusing on business and real estate. After moving to Indianapolis, I worked as a Felony Court Supervisor handling many high-profile cases until February 1991.
In March of 1991, I joined a commercial litigation law firm in Indianapolis. There, I worked in real estate and commercial litigation for approximately two years. My contribution was instrumental in getting the law firm approved for its handling of federal banking regulatory matters in 1992. In March 1993, my family and I returned to my hometown of Fort Wayne, where I served in the Allen County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office as Senior Trial Counsel, then Chief Counsel of the Civil Division, and finally Chief Deputy Prosecutor. My responsibilities included the supervision of homicide cases, management of Grand Jury investigations, and administration of the office and staff of over 130 employees. I served in that position for nearly five years.
I returned to private law practice on October 1, 2001 as a solo practitioner. Loomis Law Office is located in the Chestnut Hills Office Park, just off of SR 14 (Illinois Road). I am admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of Indiana, all Indiana trial courts, the U.S. District Court for Northern Indiana, and the U.S. District Court for Southern Indiana. I also practice before the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board and have appeared before several Indiana administrative and regulatory boards.
