About Us


A meeting in the SouthBank Law office.
A firm a decade in the making.
In 2008, our founders decided to do something new. They launched a different kind of law firm - a firm designed to meet the needs of an evolving legal landscape that increasingly demands efficient and effective counsel. In 2018, the firm introduced an updated moniker, SouthBank Legal: LaDue | Curran | Kuehn. The name reflects our firm's unique culture - one that is innovative, agile, and team-based.
The old model is broken - so we created a new one.
All of our clients are firm clients. No single attorney owns the client relationship at SouthBank Legal. That type of model can lead to silos and turf wars over clients. We collaborate on the client relationship so clients have access to our entire team, ensuring the right members of our team are helping with your legal needs.

A no-surprises billing model.
The last thing you need when you're in the middle of a legal matter is to be surprised by your legal fees. That's why we talk with clients up front about what to expect and tailor our services and fees to meet their needs. When expectations are set clearly from the beginning, everyone benefits.
Our team approach extends beyond our own walls.
Our attorneys have extensive experience working with national law firms and in-house counsel, handling complex litigation and business transactions throughout the U.S. We collaborate to combine our industry knowledge with our knowledge of the Midwest region to drive results. Don't just take our word for it - we're happy to provide references from attorneys across the country who have partnered with us successfully.
Welcome to SouthBank Legal.
We're proud to play a part in revitalizing downtown South Bend. In 2016, we moved our practice to One Michiana Square, now named 100 East Wayne. Our new flagship space reflects our innovative practice: open and inviting, professional and practical. Our newest office in Elkhart, at 418 S. Main St., allows our clients in the region to have convenient access to our attorneys, wherever their business takes them.

We invest in our communities.
South Bend and Elkhart - and the entire Midwest, for that matter - have given us so much. That's why we generously and actively give back. Whether it's through our firm's recent investment in infrastructure at 100 East Wayne in South Bend, support of many of the region's charitable organizations and youth activities, or our attorneys' personal civic engagements, we are committed to making a difference in our communities.
