Bryce Bennett is a founding partner of Riley Bennett & Egloff, a law firm that today employees 63 professionals and support staff and counts many reputable business, government and educational institutions in its client group. During his 33 years as a business and trial lawyer, Bryce has mentored future leaders of the legal and business world. His practice advice and professional savvy are held in high regard by the clients, bar associations, and community interests he serves.

The best advice I ever received was
“Don’t make excuses.Make good.”
(From my father, Bryce H. Bennett Sr. 1926-2007).

I wish I had known when I graduated law school
the value and satisfaction in volunteerism and community involvement.

My best stress reliever is
exercise.

If I weren’t a lawyer, I’d be
unable to help so many people achieve their business, professional and personal objectives.

In 2012, I’d like to
stay healthy and enjoy my family.

The three words that best describe me are
dedicated, diligent and determined.

In my community, I’m passionate about
good government, economic development and high quality of life.

In the movie about my life, this actor would play me:
It would have to be an unknown actor. No famous actor would agree to play someone who works 13 hours a day.

  1. Don't we have bigger issues to concern ourselves with?

  2. Anyone who takes the time to study disciplinary and bar admission cases in Indiana ... much of which is, as a matter of course and by intent, off the record, would have a very difficult time drawing lines that did not take into account things which are not supposed to matter, such as affiliations, associations, associates and the like. Justice Hoosier style is a far departure than what issues in most other parts of North America. (More like Central America, in fact.) See, e.g., http://www.theindianalawyer.com/indiana-attorney-illegally-practicing-in-florida-suspended-for-18-months/PARAMS/article/42200 When while the Indiana court system end the cruel practice of killing prophets of due process and those advocating for blind justice?

  3. Wouldn't this call for an investigation of Government corruption? Chief Justice Loretta Rush, wrote that the case warranted the high court’s review because the method the Indiana Court of Appeals used to reach its decision was “a significant departure from the law.” Specifically, David wrote that the appellate panel ruled after reweighing of the evidence, which is NOT permissible at the appellate level. **But yet, they look the other way while an innocent child was taken by a loving mother who did nothing wrong"

  4. Different rules for different folks....

  5. I would strongly suggest anyone seeking mediation check the experience of the mediator. There are retired judges who decide to become mediators. Their training and experience is in making rulings which is not the point of mediation.
