A 20-lawyer firm in Evansville announced its merger with one of the nation’s 250 largest law firms effective July 1.

Rudolph, Fine, Porter and Johnson LLP will merge with Jackson Kelly PLLC, the companies announced in a statement.

“With complementary skill sets and collective knowledge, the joining of the two firms will enable us to take our clients to the next level with a broader range of resources and services,” Rudolph Fine managing partner Marc D. Fine said.

Chad J. Sullivan, member in Jackson Kelly's Evansville office, said the merger is in response to the continued prosperity of the region and its local businesses.  

“We are honored to add the attorneys of Rudolph, Fine, Porter and Johnson to the firm and are confident that this expansion will improve our ability to help clients take advantage of the increased opportunity in the Tri-State area. As Evansville prepares for growth, so do we,” said Sullivan.

Jackson Kelly, which was founded in 1822 and traces its roots to Charleston, W.Va., opened its 11th office in Evansville with three attorneys in 2011 to serve its growing energy practice and continues to support the energy and manufacturing industries in the area. Its Evansville office will move to Rudolph Fine Porter and Johnson’s downtown office site at 221 NW Fifth St.

Rudolph Fine was founded in 1987 and now has more than 50 attorneys, paraprofessionals and administrators in offices in Evansville and Crawfordsville. The firm’s practice areas include litigation, mediation, estate planning and administration, corporate, health care, banking, employment and real estate law.

  1. by the time anybody gets to such files they will probably have been totally vacuumed anyways. they're pros at this at universities. anything to protect their incomes. Still, a laudable attempt. Let's go for throat though: how about the idea of unionizing football college football players so they can get a fair shake for their work? then if one of the players is a pain in the neck cut them loose instead of protecting them. if that kills the big programs, great, what do they have to do with learning anyways? nada. just another way for universities to rake in the billions even as they skate from paying taxes with their bogus "nonprofit" status.

  2. Um the affidavit from the lawyer is admissible, competent evidence of reasonableness itself. And anybody who had done law work in small claims court would not have blinked at that modest fee. Where do judges come up with this stuff? Somebody is showing a lack of experience and it wasn't the lawyers

  3. My children were taken away a year ago due to drugs, and u struggled to get things on track, and now that I have been passing drug screens for almost 6 months now and not missing visits they have already filed to take my rights away. I need help.....I can't loose my babies. Plz feel free to call if u can help. Sarah at 765-865-7589

  4. Females now rule over every appellate court in Indiana, and from the federal southern district, as well as at the head of many judicial agencies. Give me a break, ladies! Can we men organize guy-only clubs to tell our sob stories about being too sexy for our shirts and not being picked for appellate court openings? Nope, that would be sexist! Ah modernity, such a ball of confusion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmRsWdK0PRI

  5. LOL thanks Jennifer, thanks to me for reading, but not reading closely enough! I thought about it after posting and realized such is just what was reported. My bad. NOW ... how about reporting who the attorneys were raking in the Purdue alum dollars?
