Fredric L. Young
Fred obtained his degree in finance from Ohio University and his law degree from the University of Akron School of Law. He is admitted to practice in the state of Ohio, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio and the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. He is a member of the Ohio State, Dayton and Miami County Bar Associations. Fred has over 25 years of litigation experience. His practice focuses on personal injury, wrongful death, product liability, business and contract litigation, automobile/motor vehicle accidents, premises liability, construction litigation and appellate law.
Fred had the opportunity to expand his work outside of Ohio, into California in a novel case. He reached a successful resolution in a case for his client filed in the Federal District Court for the Southern District of California involving unique concrete and military shoot house construction issues. The case took him throughout the country for depositions of a broad range of government representatives, federal contractors and other related personnel. The results of these depositions brought to light many issues the opposing parties had not considered when they originally denied the client’s claim for payment and allowed for a settlement favorable to the client without the need for an extraordinarily expensive trial.
In addition to his litigation practice, Fred also represents small to medium-sized businesses in business start-up organization, operating agreements, corporate by-laws, partnership agreements, employment agreements and contract drafting. Fred often presents to business and community groups on various business and litigation topics. In addition to cases before courts in Ohio, Fred handles cases with the American Arbitration Association. He is a member of the Dayton Lawyers Club and Inn of Court.
Fred was elected to the position of Vice President for the Board of Trustees of the Dayton Bar Association in June 2019. He previously served as Member-at-Large and Second Vice President of that Board of Trustees. He also has served the Judges Committee on Notaries Public nearly 18 years, and now serves as Chairman of that Committee.
Fred was born in Gallipolis, Ohio, and raised near Pomeroy, Ohio. He lives in Springboro, Ohio, where he remains active in community affairs. Outside of his practice, Fred is Past President of the Centerville Kiwanis and was a two-term member of the Citizens Advisory Council of the Montgomery Developmental Center. He served as Secretary and Board Member of the Sycamore Creek Country Club. He enjoys architectural history, photography, collecting antique camera equipment, cooking and golf with his wife Cathy.
