WINFIELD – A Charleston law firm is being sued by Huntington National Bank over a $25,000 loan.

HNB filed a lawsuit Dec. 2 against the Hoosier Law Firm, Michelle Hoosier and D. Adrian Hoosier II in Putnam County Circuit Court. The suit claims the firm is in default of the terms of the loan, which was issued in August 2010 and included monthly payments until 2015.

With a seven percent interest rate, the firm owes the bank $25,949.25, HNB claims.

“Defendant the Firm is in default under the terms and provisions of the Note, having failed to pay to HNB the amount due and payable under the Note as and when those payments became due and payable,” the complaint says.

The Hoosier Law Firm is a personal injury firm. According to its website, it files lawsuits in the areas of auto accidents, workplace injuries, insurance denial, wrongful termination, wage/payment claims, family/criminal law and asbestos-related claims.

It also claims to have contingency fees as low as 20 percent.

The loan at issue was guaranteed by Michelle and D. Adrian Hoosier, the complaint says, and that both are in default.

HNB is represented by Peter J. Raupp and Lauren M. Palmer of Steptoe & Johnson in Charleston.
