David Frisse, a native of Highland, Illinois, is a graduate of Notre Dame University and the St. Louis University School of Law. He served as head of the Tax Litigation Division in the Illinois Attorney General’s Office before entering private practice in Illinois in 1979. In 1994 David founded Frisse & Brewster Law Offices, LLC, then based in Paris, Illinois, and Terre Haute, Indiana.
David’s focus is business and estate planning law, where his goal is to ensure that his clients give what they have, to whom they want, when they want, in the way they want. David feels he can best help his clients accomplish this by using a unique “team” approach, which engages the client and includes other professional financial and legal advisors in the process. Education, counseling, creative decision-making and family conversation culminates in a plan designed to protect what’s important to the client.
David is a member of the National Network of Estate Planning Attorneys and Wealth Counsel. Providing support and continuing education, the members of these organizations share a practice commitment that respects the dignity of both their profession and their clients.
David lectures extensively and is a contributing-author of two books; Love, Money and Control: Reinventing Estate Planning and The Complete Guide to Estate Planning & Financial Planning in Turbulent Times. His affiliations, activities, memberships, continuing education and leadership roles both in his profession and within his community are considerable.
David is considered a local expert in Napoleonic history. He also and plays a mean blues guitar, and maintains a well-loved guitar collection that includes several late 1960s Gibson Les Paul models. Dave and his wife Doris live near Paris and are both lead singers of The Dave Frisse Band. They enjoy traveling, especially to the Southwest, and take part in the annual Joe Bonamassa blues cruise. Currently, their favorite place to travel is Indianapolis, where they visit their first grandchild.
