Anna Mandula, a general negligence and health care attorney, has shown herself in the community to be an honorable and excellent example of what a young lawyer should be: she has class, intelligence, ethics, humility and integrity. She participates in Share the Love to support women in the community and supports The Cancer Resource Centre. Anna is always willing to lend a hand to fellow attorneys.

In 2012, I’d like to
continue to gain knowledge and experience to build my career and be better able to serve clients and positively impact the community at large.

The best advice I could give a recent law school graduate is
to remember that what you lack in experience, make up for in preparation.

The three words that best describe me are
hardworking, determined and honest.

My long-term career goal is
to make partner at my firm.

If I weren’t an attorney, I’d be
an interior designer and decorator.

My escape from work is
spending as much time as possible with my family and friends and redecorating my house (and my parents’ house, too).

My mentor has taught me
(and continues to teach me) what being an attorney is all about; to not be afraid to admit when you don’t know something; and the value of extensive preparation.

In the movie about my life,
Rachel Weisz would play me.

  1. A sad end to a prolific gadfly. Indiana has suffered a great loss in the journalistic realm.

  2. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  3. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  4. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  5. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.
