Benjamin D. Fryman receives presidential citation at ISBA awards luncheon


INDIANAPOLIS (Aug. 30, 2017) – Benjamin D. Fryman, Valparaiso, was recognized for his exceptional contributions to the Indiana State Bar Association (ISBA) Social Media Focus Group, which helped guide the ISBA in its efforts to launch a public education campaign targeting millennials about the importance of consulting with a lawyer rather than “going it alone.” Fryman received a presidential citation from ISBA President Mitchell R. Heppenheimer at its annual awards luncheon in Indianapolis on Aug. 30.


Fryman is a founding partner and the current CEO of the firm Schwerd Fryman & Torrenga LLP. Previously, he was an associate at the Highland, Ind., Hilbrich Law Firm. He received his B.S., cum laude, from Indiana Wesleyan University in 2001 and his J.D. from the Valparaiso University School of Law in 2005. He is a member of the Porter County (past president, 2015), Lake County and Indiana State (graduate, Leadership Development Academy; chair, Social Media Focus Group; past chair, Young Lawyers Section) bar associations, National Diocesan Attorney Association, Indiana Trial Lawyers Association and the American Inns of Court. He is also active with the Faith Memorial Lutheran Church.




Founded in 1896, the Indiana State Bar Association (ISBA) is the single largest legal organization in the state. With nearly 12,000 members, the ISBA serves and advocates on behalf of its members, their clients and the public interest as the independent voice of the legal profession.
