Jarod M. Zimmerman
A native Hoosier, Jarod was born in Indianapolis and grew up in Carmel. Jarod is the proud uncle to his sister's first child and enjoys doting on his nephew.
It shouldn't come as a surprise that Jarod, a lifelong Hoosier, has always had a passion for sports, especially basketball and baseball which he played while growing up. Jarod continues to enjoy athletic competition today, both as an participant and as a spectator.
With an interest in a variety of subjects, law seemed the ideal career choice since it has the potential of touching every facet of life.
When it comes to the practice of law, Jarod enjoys the constant challenge to improve and gain new skills and finds the practice of law mentally stimulating and incredibly rewarding. During law school, he pursued as many subjects as possible, gaining new skills and a further appreciation for a great many subjects including litigation, alternative dispute resolution, corporate litigation and white-collar crime, tax controversy, and civil rights.
While still relatively new to the profession, Jarod looks forward to a long career involving constant development, improvement, and reinvention.
