Dustin Fregiato was born and raised in a small town in Eastern Ohio. Growing up in "Coal Country", as it is commonly known to those who live there, not only taught him the value of a hard day's work but also taught him his core values of: faith, family and friendship and how they should be applied to every aspect of one's life, including one's career. Dustin left that small town to attend undergraduate studies at The Ohio State University. After graduating cum laude with a BA in political science at OSU, he moved to Indianapolis to attend law school at the Indiana University McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis. While there, Dustin focused his legal education on litigation and trial practice, clerked for the Marion County Prosecutor's Office and later for Marion County Judge Carol Orbison.
Dustin began working with Ladendorf Law as a law clerk in 2010. At Ladendorf Law he quickly learned to appreciate the practice of representing injured clients and the relationship a trial attorney's practice has to those core values he learned in his hometown. After graduating from the Indiana University McKinney School of Law, Dustin continued working at Ladendorf Law as an Associate Attorney where he has remained to the present. Throughout his time as an attorney, Dustin has represented and been successful in obtaining the needed compensation for clients impacted by wrongful death, medical malpractice and injuries of all kinds. He understands the frustration and anguish an injury can cause to a family that extends well beyond the superficial bruise or broken bone and uses his knowledge about this intricate area of law to fight for his clients.
Dustin is licensed to practice before the Indiana Supreme Court as well as the Northern and Southern Districts of the United States District Courts of Indiana and is a Certified Civil Mediator under Indiana A.D.R. Rule 2.5. Dustin has authored "The Indiana Medical Malpractice Act's Statute of Limitations" which appeared in the Indiana Trial Lawyer's Associations': Verdict and was a speaker in the spring of 2015 at the Indiana Trial Lawyer Association's Lifetime Achievement Awards' Ceremony. Dustin's practice areas include personal injury, premises liability, medical malpractice and wrongful death.
