Surrisi named new City Attorney
PLYMOUTH — Plymouth Mayor Mark Senter announced today the appointment of Sean Surrisi as City Attorney for the City of Plymouth. Sean will replace Nelson Chipman who has accepted the appointment of Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for Marshall County. He will be sworn in March 1.
Sean was born in Indianapolis and moved to the Culver area when he was 11.
He is a 1995 graduate of Culver Community High School and a 1999 graduate of DePauw University where he majored in Studio Art. Sean went on to receive his law degree at Valparaiso University in 2005.
Sean has worked in his family restaurant, The Edgewater Grille, for several years as the kitchen supervisor and also owned JS Surrisi Gallery, a Culver based art gallery featuring Indiana artists, from 2001 to 2003.
Sean has worked the last six years as an associate attorney for Anderson, Agostino and Keller in South Bend where he pursued a diverse workload of civil litigation and transactional matters with an emphasis on insurance coverage disputes. As part of a 12-attorney firm, he handled a wide variety of other civil cases, including work on behalf of some governmental units within St. Joseph County.
“I’m excited about the job and the opportunity to help the mayor achieve all of his goals in his second term,” Surrisi said.
