Casey C. Kannenberg, still in the early stages of his career, has already made a lasting impression at his firm as a litigation associate and in the community through high-caliber work. Casey strives to be a “complete” attorney, which to him is a person who is an excellent lawyer and integral player in the legal profession and community at large. Casey is active in the Indiana State Bar Association, serving as secretary/treasurer in 2013 for the Young Lawyers Section. He also serves as chair of the Randall T. Shepard Art Project Steering Committee, which was developed through the ISBA’s Leadership Development Academy. The committee is working toward installing an interactive art project in an Evansville park that both honors the former Indiana chief justice and on which children can play.

If you could meet and spend a day with one lawyer from history, who would it be and why? 
Thurgood Marshall, he was our country’s consummate advocate for justice and equality.

What class in law school did you find the most difficult?
Real Property. I hope to never encounter the rule against perpetuities in my practice.

Would a world without 24/7 technology be a good or bad thing?
It might be more peaceful and carefree, but we would all go crazy not being able to instantaneously Google the name of the movie you are watching right now to find out that actor’s name, who you swear was in some other movie you saw a couple weeks ago.

Numerous TV shows center around lawyers and their practices. Are any of them close to realistic?
I certainly hope that there are Denny Cranes and Alan Shores out there somewhere. Most courtroom antics are not that colorful and legendary, however.

What civic cause is the most important to you?
The Make-a-Wish Foundation.

What’s the most important thing your mentor has taught you?
The common theme among those who I consider mentors is civility in the practice of law.

  1. Im very happy for you, getting ready to go down that dirt road myself, and im praying for the same outcome, because it IS sometimes in the childs best interest to have visitation with grandparents. Thanks for sharing, needed to hear some positive posts for once.

  2. Been there 4 months with 1 paycheck what can i do

  3. our hoa has not communicated any thing that takes place in their "executive meetings" not executive session. They make decisions in these meetings, do not have an agenda, do not notify association memebers and do not keep general meetings minutes. They do not communicate info of any kind to the member, except annual meeting, nobody attends or votes because they think the board is self serving. They keep a deposit fee from club house rental for inspection after someone uses it, there is no inspection I know becausee I rented it, they did not disclose to members that board memebers would be keeping this money, I know it is only 10 dollars but still it is not their money, they hire from within the board for paid positions, no advertising and no request for bids from anyone else, I atteended last annual meeting, went into executive session to elect officers in that session the president brought up the motion to give the secretary a raise of course they all agreed they hired her in, then the minutes stated that a diffeerent board member motioned to give this raise. This board is very clickish and has done things anyway they pleased for over 5 years, what recourse to members have to make changes in the boards conduct

  4. Where may I find an attorney working Pro Bono? Many issues with divorce, my Disability, distribution of IRA's, property, money's and pressured into agreement by my attorney. Leaving me far less than 5% of all after 15 years of marriage. No money to appeal, disabled living on disability income. Attorney's decision brought forward to judge, no evidence ever to finalize divorce. Just 2 weeks ago. Please help.

  5. For the record no one could answer the equal protection / substantive due process challenge I issued in the first post below. The lawless and accountable only to power bureaucrats never did either. All who interface with the Indiana law examiners or JLAP be warned.
