Frischkorn assumes development role
ANDERSON — Michael Frischkorn will succeed Ashley Hopper, who began her role as city attorney this week, as Deputy Director of Economic Development. Frischkorn assumed his duties Monday, March 18.

Michael’s past practice as an attorney in appellate law provides the perfect skill set for this position.
“Michael brings the legal expertise, contractual insight and work ethic required for success in this postion. We hate to lose Ashley, but she is going to make a great city attorney and Michael is a great choice to fill this deputy director’s role.”
Prior to his appointment and after years of experience serving in the legal field as an associate attorney for Sauce Tardy & Blumenthal and later as a judicial law clerk for the Indiana Court of Appeals, Frischkorn launched Frischkorn Law LLC, a general practice law firm in Fortville, focusing on appellate litigation.
Frischkorn received his undergraduate degree in 2002 from Anderson University and in 2005 graduated from Indiana University’s McKinney School of Law with his Juris Doctor.
