Growing up in rural Indiana, Fred admired his uncle who was a lawyer in a nearby town. He enjoyed reading and learning new things and felt that becoming a lawyer was a way to use his natural skills to help others. Fred graduated from Indiana University Maurer School of Law in 1996 and began his legal career as a deputy prosecuting attorney with the Greene County Prosecutor's Office from 1996 to 1998. He joined Nunn & Greene Law Office as an associate attorney until he left in May of 2005 to form the law firm of Greene & Schultz with Betsy Greene.

Fred has tried numerous jury trials in both State and Federal Courts in Indiana, and has written and spoken at a number of Continuing Legal Education programs, both in Indiana and across the country. During his career as a trial lawyer, Fred has received numerous awards and recognitions. He has received the top award for a lawyer in practice less than ten years from both the Indiana Trial Lawyers Association and the Association for Justice, the Max Goodwin Award from ITLA, and the F. Scott Baldwin Award from the American Association for Justice. He is also a graduate of the Trial Lawyers College.

Fred has been named a Super Lawyer for every year since 2008 by Law & Politics Magazine, and the publishers of Indianapolis Monthly. The Super Lawyer award is given out only after an extensive peer review and screening process of all the lawyers in Indiana and is bestowed upon those attorneys who are considered to be among the top five percent of all lawyers in Indiana. He has also been recognized by Best Lawyers in America every year since 2013.

Fred is frequently asked to serve in leadership positions in the various organizations which he is involved. He has served as president of the Monroe County Bar Association, chairperson of the Indiana Trial Lawyers Association (ITLA) Annual Institute, co-chaired ITLA's Professional Responsibility Seminar, and has been asked to speak many times at the Annual Convention for the American Association for Justice. He is also a member of the Indiana State Bar Association. Fred is active in leadership in the Indiana Trial Lawyers Association (ITLA), where he has served on the Board of Directors since 2004 and the Executive Committee since 2011. He currently serves as the President Elect of ITLA and is currently President of the Indiana chapter of ABOTA. He is also a member of the American Association for Justice, where he is a past member of the Board of Governors, and still serves on several committees. Fred is also a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates. He is also board certified as a Civil Trial Advocate by the National Board of Trial Advocacy.
