Curtis grew up in Bloomington, Indiana, where he attended Indiana University to pursue a degree in architecture. As economic circumstances around the country changed, so did his focus. He graduated with an accounting degree, which included some pre-law classes that whet his appetite for the law. He went on to attend the IU School of Law, where he earned his Juris Doctorate.

Curtis served a year as deputy attorney general for the State of Indiana before opening his law practice in Carmel, Indiana in 1975.

Restoring and preserving Carmel’s history

Curtis designed and built his own home. His grandparents were involved in construction and cabinet making, which influenced his initial decision to become an architect. While he chose law as a profession, his efforts to restore historic downtown Carmel buildings, one of which is home to his office, earned him an award.
