Clinic director moves to AG's office

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

After founding Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic and serving as its executive director since January 1994, Abigail Kuzma is leaving the organization to work in the Consumer Protection Division of the Indiana Attorney General's Office.

She said the work will be similar to what she's done at NCLC including protecting those most vulnerable to consumer fraud and furthering foreclosure prevention efforts. She will also be instrumental in improving the division's community outreach efforts, which will include AmeriCorps/VISTA volunteers who will help the office reach out to the needy in the state's 14 pro bono districts.

Kuzma said she and NCLC board president Joseph E. Miller Jr. of Baker & Daniels' Indianapolis office had been working on a succession plan for the past two years. While she hadn't yet started to look for another job, the timing was right when she was offered this one.

She has been working for the AG's office part-time since mid-February while continuing her work at NCLC; she starts at the AG's office full time April 6.

NCLC managing attorney Josh Abel, who has been with the organization for four years, will be the interim executive director and will likely become the next executive director, Kuzma said.

Kuzma will continue to work with NCLC as co-board chair with Miller.

  1. Is it possible to amend an order for child support due to false paternity?

  2. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  3. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  4. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  5. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!
