About David Seiter

Attorney Biography

Attorney Seiter was admitted to practice law throughout the state of Indiana in 1998. As a general practice lawyer, he has experience in both criminal and civil law. David practiced law for over 14 years, and built a successful private practice before serving as a judicial officer in Marion County, Indiana for three and a half years.David has major felony trial and appellate advocacy experience. While many lawyers will spend an entire career and never have the opportunity to argue before the Indiana Supreme Court, David has done so three times. Those decisions have helped shape Indiana law in the areas of Operating a Vehicle while Intoxicated and Habitual Traffic Violator offenses.In 2013, David retired as a field grade officer in the U.S. Army Reserves after serving for 25 years. Originally enlisting as a private out of high school in 1988, he was later commissioned through ROTC as a Second Lieutenant in the Military Police and completed the U.S. Army's Airborne School. David served as a commander of the 384th MP HHC in Fort Wayne, IN, before transferring to the Judge Advocates General (JAG) Corps in 2000 where he served the remainder of his Army career as a military lawyer.

In 2003, David was deployed to Iraq as a JAG officer with the 800th Military Police Battalion in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He was assigned to the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) in the Iraqi Ministry of Justice where he served as the "ombudsman" for juvenile and female detainees. He earned the Bronze Star during his deployment for a variety of accomplishments, including obtaining a confession from an Iraqi detainee concerning placement of over 500 anti-tank and personnel mines -successfully negotiating the peaceful displacement of over 1,500 squatters from Iraqi government lands, exhibiting the proper care and control over Iraqi detainees and organizing charitable events to better the Iraqi people.Despite being in the middle of a war zone, David made international news when he established an Arabic library in the Al-Karhk Juvenile Detention Facility and held a charitable event called "Operation Touchdown," in which two Baghdad orphanages were introduced to the sport of American Football with the assistance of the Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints franchises. He later renewed the Operation Touchdown theme in 2006 and 2010, raising money for the United Services Organization (USO) and Wounded Warrior Project, respectively.

David is also an adjunct professor at Indiana University-Purdue University-Indianapolis (IUPUI), where he teaches Substantive Criminal Law for the School of Public and Environmental Affairs. Additionally, David has presented classes to fellow members of the Indiana Bar and judges on the Military Aspects of Divorce in Indiana and the Servicemember's Civil Relief Act.
