Hickey: 5,000 Wishes

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

IBA-Hickey-ChristineI am reminded of the words to a song: five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes. How do you measure, measure a year?

This year began with a wish: that the Indianapolis Bar Association would flourish and that our community of remarkable people, wonderful lawyers and great friends would grow even stronger. How do you measure a year? By those around you. Those with whom you affiliate, work, create, succeed, and those you call friends. People that you can count on, work with to solve a problem, share a pat on the back at the end of the day. Those people who tell it like it is, help to soften the blow, lead, follow, teach, and learn. We all play an integral role.

This month marks a milestone for the IndyBar. For the first time, our membership has grown to five thousand strong and counting. Five thousand lawyers, judges, law students, paralegals. Five thousand people who collectively make our Indianapolis legal community the wonderful place that it is to live and work. Five thousand people whose paths have crossed, who have shared something in common or worked together in one way or another throughout this year. Five thousand wishes realized.

  1. OK, now do something about this preverted anacronism

  2. William Hartley prosecutor of Wabash county constantly violates people rights. Withholds statement's, is bias towards certain people. His actions have ruined lives and families. In this county you question him or go out of town for a lawyer,he finds a way to make things worse for you. Unfair,biased and crooked.

  3. why is the State trying to play GOD? Automatic sealing of a record is immoral. People should have the right to decide how to handle a record. the state is playing GOD. I have searched for decades, then you want me to pay someone a huge price to contact my son. THIS is extortion and gestapo control. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW.

  4. I haven't made some of the best choices in the last two years I have been to marion county jail 1 and two on three different occasions each time of release dates I've spent 48 to 72 hours after date of release losing a job being denied my freedom after ordered please help

  5. Out here in Kansas, where I now work as a government attorney, we are nearing the end of a process that could have relevance in this matter: "Senate Bill 45 would allow any adult otherwise able to possess a handgun under state and federal laws to carry that gun concealed as a matter of course without a permit. This move, commonly called constitutional carry, would elevate the state to the same club that Vermont, Arizona, Alaska and Wyoming have joined in the past generation." More reading here: http://www.guns.com/2015/03/18/kansas-house-panel-goes-all-in-on-constitutional-carry-measure/ Time to man up, Hoosiers. (And I do not mean that in a sexist way.)
