Legal practice expands to Zionsville


A law firm with a nearly 90-year-old history opened a new office in Zionsville Aug. 1 at 1620 West Oak Street, Suite 200.

Hackman Hulett LLP was founded in 1929 under the name Thompson Rabb & Stevenson in downtown Indianapolis. The firm changed its name to Hackman Hulett LLP in 2015. Attorneys Jeffrey Jacob and Christopher Hammerle, formerly of Jacob Hammerle & Johnson in Zionsville, are new partners in the firm.


“We saw this as an opportunity to join a firm that had similar practice areas and to provide a full-service firm for clients on the northside of Indianapolis and throughout central Indiana,” Jacob said.

Hammerle focuses on criminal and civil litigation. Jacob’s area of expertise includes general business services and providing guidance to local utilities.

“We thought it was natural to locate in Zionsville,” Jacob said. “We see Boone County as a tremendously fast growing area, one of the fastest in the state. We saw a need for a firm that provides a wide scope of services in Zionsville. We believe we will fulfill that need in the area.”

The new location also provides estate planning.


“That is another area we think we can help,” Jacob said. “Estate planning isn’t always the most pleasant topic, but it’s one that we see that people don’t pay as much attention to as they should.”

Both attorneys and managing partner, Anthony Ridolfo Jr., have ties to Boone County.

“Tony Ridolfo has been a long-time resident of Zionsville,” Jacob said. “Chris lives in Zionsville. My wife and I both graduated from Zionsville High School and have family roots here. We all three enjoy practicing within the community in which we live. We like that feel and atmosphere.”
