Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Two attorneys with experience serving the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission have been appointed to the commission by Gov. Mike Pence.

Angela Weber, of counsel at Ice Miller LLP, and Carol Stephan, assistant general counsel for the IURC, were selected from a pool of six candidates to fill two vacancies on the commission.

Weber has served as staff attorney for the Indiana Department of Education, administrative law judge for the IURC and deputy prosecuting attorney for Marion County. She is a graduate of the Indiana University Maurer School of Law.

“As evidenced by her service to both her country and her state, Angela Weber has demonstrated time and again her dedication and passion for serving Hoosiers,” Pence said. “Her past experience will serve her well as a member of the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission, and I am grateful for her willingness to serve.”

Stephan has previously worked as the general counsel for the Indiana Office of the Utility Consumer Counselor, interim deputy commission and director of partner services for the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, and deputy attorney general in the Bankruptcy/Inheritance Tax Division in the Office of the Indiana Attorney General.

She holds a law degree from the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law.

“Carol Stephan’s extensive legal experience and background with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission allow her to bring invaluable insight to the table,” Pence said. “I am confident she will work tirelessly to ensure reliable services and reasonable prices for Hoosier utilities’ customers.”

  1. "associates are becoming more mercenary. The path to partnership has become longer and more difficult so they are chasing short-term gains like high compensation." GOOD FOR THEM! HELL THERE OUGHT TO BE A UNION!

  2. Let's be honest. A glut of lawyers out there, because law schools have overproduced them. Law schools dont care, and big law loves it. So the firms can afford to underpay them. Typical capitalist situation. Wages have grown slowly for entry level lawyers the past 25 years it seems. Just like the rest of our economy. Might as well become a welder. Oh and the big money is mostly reserved for those who can log huge hours and will cut corners to get things handled. More capitalist joy. So the answer coming from the experts is to "capitalize" more competition from nonlawyers, and robots. ie "expert systems." One even hears talk of "offshoring" some legal work. thus undercutting the workers even more. And they wonder why people have been pulling for Bernie and Trump. Hello fools, it's not just the "working class" it's the overly educated suffering too.

  3. And with a whimpering hissy fit the charade came to an end ... http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2016/07/27/all-charges-dropped-against-all-remaining-officers-in-freddie-gray-case/ WHISTLEBLOWERS are needed more than ever in a time such as this ... when politics trump justice and emotions trump reason. Blue Lives Matter.

  4. "pedigree"? I never knew that in order to become a successful or, for that matter, a talented attorney, one needs to have come from good stock. What should raise eyebrows even more than the starting associates' pay at this firm (and ones like it) is the belief systems they subscribe to re who is and isn't "fit" to practice law with them. Incredible the arrogance that exists throughout the practice of law in this country, especially at firms like this one.

  5. Finally, an official that realizes that reducing the risks involved in the indulgence in illicit drug use is a great way to INCREASE the problem. What's next for these idiot 'proponents' of needle exchange programs? Give drunk drivers booze? Give grossly obese people coupons for free junk food?
