About The Firm – OLD

About Us


Scott M. Federoff and James A. Federoff have a combined 74 years of legal experience primarily serving clients in Fort Wayne, and Northeast Indiana in the areas of real estate, land use and zoning, and business and corporate law from start up businesses to national retailers. 

The attorneys of Federoff Law are considered among the best in their fields and have been honored with numerous awards over the past three decades. We are known for our unrelenting pursuit of perfection, attention to detail, and superb lines of communications with our clients.

When you hire Federoff Law, you will communicate directly with your attorney, not with an answering machine, a secretary, or an associate. We do not have different levels of clients. No matter the scope of your issue we treat every matter with the same importance as you do.

Of equal importance of what Federoff Law can do for you is what we cannot.  We do not provide legal services for criminal matters, divorce, bankruptcy, or personal injury. We are the best at what we do and stay in those lanes.  If issues arise that are outside the scope of our practice, we will refer you to attorneys we trust to address that matter.
