Jeff D. Oliphant
Jeff Oliphant has spent his entire legal career representing and working for victims of personal injury accidents and wrongful death incidents. While attending the Indiana University School of Law, Jeff worked as a law clerk for a personal injury law firm. He quickly realized that helping people, many of which were severely and permanently injured by the fault of others, was how he wanted to spend his career. Jeff’s dedication and work ethic led that very same law firm to employ him as an attorney so he could continue working for their clients. In 2005, when the chance was presented, Jeff quickly accepted an opportunity to join forces with The Hastings Law Firm.
Jeff graduated in 1985 from L&M High School in southern Indiana, where he was a standout basketball player and ultimately a member of the prestigious Indiana All-Star Basketball team. Jeff was the only Indiana high school player that year to be recruited to play basketball at Indiana University by Hall of Fame coach Bob Knight. Jeff was a member of I.U.’s 1987 National Championship team, the 1989 Big Ten Championship team and served as a Co-Captain of the 1990 team. As a student-athlete, Jeff was honored with the Scholastic Athletic Achievement Award by the I.U. Varsity Club, as well as the L.G. Balfour Award for bringing honor and distinction to the University.
Jeff spends the vast majority of time away from work with his wife Nancy, and their three children. Whether it’s helping with homework, coaching or watching their sports teams, or just cooking hot dogs around a campfire at their Carmel, Indiana home, he gets no greater pleasure than spending time with his family and friends.
