In his 30+ years of practicing law, Steve Langer knows what it means to be invested in his clients’ needs. When an injured person or the parent, family or loved one of an incapacitated individual walks through his door, Steve is compelled to help in any way he can. The client isn’t just a file number; he or she is someone who will be treated with dignity, compassion and the utmost attention to getting needed assistance. Simply put, he treats his clients the way he would want to be treated. Steve concentrates his practice on plaintiff’s medical malpractice, personal injury, car and truck crashes, and complex litigation. He understands the intricacies that can arise in these cases, and is persistent in seeing a case to a positive end result. He firmly believes that a case is not just about the potential financial compensation but also about the plaintiff’s quality of care and quality of life. He understands that the end result includes finances and the ability for the client to live his or her life as fully as possible.
As a demonstration of his commitment to the law and his clients, Steve has held numerous leadership positions in the field of law, particularly within the Indiana Trial Lawyers Association (ITLA). This includes serving as the ITLA’s President and as a member of its Board of Directors, where he currently still serves. He is a former President of the College of Fellows of the ITLA, received the Consumer Advocate of the Year Award from the ITLA, and has twice received the ITLA’s Trial Lawyer of the Year award.
In 2019, Mr. Langer became a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers. The ACTL is recognized as the leading trial lawyers association in both the United States and Canada. Fellowship is extended by invitation only. Membership can never be more than 1% of the total lawyer population of any state.

In addition, Steve has testified before the Indiana legislature on Indiana’s Medical Malpractice Act, and also helped draft amendments to the Medical Malpractice Act in 2016. He has written and published numerous articles on medical malpractice and evidence, and frequently speaks on those topics.
Steve has been married for over 30 years to his wife, Diana. His two children inherited his passion for law, with his son earning his law degree and joining the firm in 2016, and his daughter earning her law degree and joining the firm in 2017.
