Complex Civil Litigation and Class Actions

Whether you’re considering the pursuit of claims as a plaintiff or you’ve been named as a defendant in a civil lawsuit, we understand that your case is important to you. It’s important to us too. Jake O’Brien devotes virtually his entire practice to assisting clients on both sides in navigating the entirety of the civil litigation process. Jake prides himself on not just working for but also with his clients to ensure that they remain fully informed about their case and that their goals and best interests are served.


Jacob (“Jake”) O’Brien graduated from Indiana University in Bloomington with a Bachelor of Science in Biology, and, later, from Indiana University’s Robert H. McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis, summa cum laude. After passing the bar exam and being sworn in as an Indiana attorney admitted to practice in both the Northern and Southern District Courts in Indiana, Jake returned to his childhood hometown of Logansport to begin his law career at Starr Austen & Miller, LLP.

As an associate at Starr Austen & Miller, Jake represented plaintiffs and defendants in both state and federal court in a vast array of civil litigation contexts, from personal injury, to complex commercial and contractual disputes, to class actions and from pre-suit investigation through trial. Now a partner at the firm, Jake continues to concentrate his practice on litigating a wide variety of complex civil lawsuits on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants.

Jake previously served as president of the Cass County (Indiana) Bar Association, and is a member of the Indiana State Bar Association and the American Bar Association. He also previously served as a Board member of the United Way of Cass County.

Jake and his wife, Ingrid, live in Logansport with their two sons and daughter.
