I am a native Hoosier, born in Valparaiso, Indiana. My father was a farmer, and my mother was a schoolteacher. I was raised on a farm in southeastern LaPorte County and attended public schools in Walkerton, Indiana. My wife of 50+ years, Nancy, is also from Walkerton. I have undergraduate and law degrees from Indiana University Bloomington (A.B., with distinction, 1972; J.D., cum laude, 1975), was elected to Phi Eta Sigma and Phi Beta Kappa scholastic honorary societies. Nancy is also a graduate of Indiana University and is a retired teacher who taught reading at the Bluffton Elementary School. We have lived in Bluffton since July 1975. We are members of the Bluffton First United Methodist Church. We have two daughters, Sarah Withers, a pharmacist at CVS in Bluffton, and Christina Kurut, a registered nurse at Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne. We have four wonderful grandchildren: Hannah, Ash, Hudson, and Jasmine.
My mentor attorney told me early on in my career to concentrate on the quality of my work, the rest will follow. Approximately 50 years of practice have enabled me to build a skill set that will help me guide you through the legal process. I have focused my practice on the areas of family law, real estate, estate planning and administration, wills and trusts, business law, and personal injury. I have been privileged to serve on the Wells County Election Board since 1978 and as the attorney for Wells County for nearly a decade.
My goal is to provide my clients with excellent legal assistance and effective representation. If you have the need for a lawyer, I would be happy to meet with you and help you resolve your legal concerns.
David Crell helped me immensely with a real estate issue between my property and the city. His quick response, coupled with his professional services, resolved the issues on schedule. His reputation in his field was a definite plus giving instant credibility. Thank you again for your help and look forward to working with you again.
Going through a divorce is never easy. David Crell is an amazing attorney who listens to his clients. Throughout my divorce he was understanding and took time to listen to what was going on and was patient. I would highly recommend if you are looking for someone who does great work and is genuine.
Mr. Andrews was my attorney for my divorce. My now ex husband David McConnehey left a bad review for Mr. Andrews on here. My ex hired an attorney that wasn't very good or just didn't try. David kept trying to get Mr. Andrews to give him legal advise. Though out mediation, Mr. Andrews tried to be helpful to Mr. McConnehey...
The services I have received here have been outstanding! Dave and his staff are very knowledgeable and professional. I had a wonderful advocate in my corner. Nothing but praises on their behalf!
Great office. I've used them many times over the years. A will, business dealings, and some family issues. I recommend them.
