In Memoriam

April 2, 1971 – April 22, 2023

Henry Najdeski was a real estate attorney with our firm for more than 25 years. He represented clients of all sizes, including entrepreneurs, sole proprietors, developers, commercial real estate brokers, mid-sized businesses, and Fortune 500 companies. He provided counsel on real estate development, zoning, mergers and acquisitions and complex financing transactions.

A Fort Wayne native and proud graduate of Canterbury High School, he joined Barrett McNagny following the completion of his Juris Doctorate from IUC Law School of Chicago. He was known inside and outside the firm for his strong, unrelenting work ethic for his clients and was a respected and well-liked member of the legal community, and a beloved partner in our firm.

He was regularly recognized for his professional achievements by The Best Lawyers in America®. He was also recognized as a City of Fort Wayne Forty Under 40 recipient.

Henry was a dedicated member of the Canterbury School Board of Trustees and played an active role in continuing the mission of the school. Over the years, he served on the boards of directors for the Questa Education Foundation, the YMCA of Greater Fort Wayne, and Erin’s House for Grieving Children.

Henry will be remembered for his good-natured attitude, his smile and his commitment to serving clients who almost always became his friends.
