The Warsaw, Indiana office of Refior Law Office, which is ideally located on the shore of beautiful Center Lake in Warsaw, Indiana, was founded in the fall of 1981 by Paul D. Refior (“Rafe”). Rafe graduated with honors from the University of Iowa College of Law (where he had served as President of the Iowa Student Bar Association) and was admitted to practice law in the State of Iowa in June 1975.
He began his legal career as a Navy JAG lawyer stationed in Norfolk, Virginia. In 1978 Rafe was admitted to practice law in Wyoming where he joined a trial practice in Pinedale, Wyoming, nestled in the Rocky Mountains. In 1980 Rafe and his family left Wyoming for a year of sabbatical, to engage in Bible-based missionary work under The Evangelical Alliance Mission (TEAM) in the city of Takamatsu, Japan. Upon returning to the United States in 1981 Rafe was admitted to practice in Indiana.
In the fall of 1981 Rafe “hung his shingle” in Warsaw, Indiana and Refior Law Office opened. The principles of crawling before you walk and walking before you run were applied to the practical development of the firm from scratch. In 1985 the original structure on Center Lake was purchased and transformed into a law office. In 1991 the current three-story, spacious law office building was constructed to take full advantage of the beautiful lake view, and provide outstanding facilities.
