Of Counsel

With deep roots in Franklin, Indiana and friends since nursery school, Rob Schafstall and Jim Admire formally partnered as Schafstall Admire, LLP law firm on October 1, 2013.

Combining their 40-plus years of legal experience, they devote their time to business and family law and real estate matters.

Rob’s father, Robert D. Schafstall, remains “Of Counsel” with the firm, and adds another 40-plus years of experience – including 40 years as Franklin City Court Judge before retiring.

Rob and Jim have helped cities and towns, large and small corporations, families and individuals navigate complex legal issues. They offer courteous, skilled and effective counsel. Most of their attorney-client relationships have become and remain long-term.

Rob and Jim were classmates and teammates growing up in Franklin, and together graduated from Franklin Community High School in 1985.

In 1989, Rob graduated from Wabash College and Jim from Indiana University. Both graduated from law school in 1992 – Rob from Indiana University, and Jim from Valparaiso University.

They each returned to their hometown in Franklin to begin their legal practices with different firms. However, they often talked over the years about getting together again and practicing under the same roof.

Both are married, raising children and involved in the community.
