Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Susan Helfrich, executive director of the Evansville Bar Association and Evansville Bar Foundation, retires today after nearly 25 years of service to the organizations. In her time with the EBA, Helfrich started the Volunteer Lawyer Program of Southwestern Indiana, the first "Talk to a Lawyer" program, and the first formal pro bono program in the southwestern part of the state.

Helfrich has been recognized for her pro bono efforts by winning the Randall T. Shepard Award - Excellence in Pro Bono Publico for her dedication to delivering legal services to the poor. She was appointed to the Interest On Lawyers Trust Account Pro Bono Initiative Committee in 1995, the only non-attorney appointed by Chief Justice Shepard. In April 2008, Helfrich received the James Bethel Gresham Freedom Award from the EBA, which recognized her lifelong achievements.

The EBA is hosting a retirement party for Helfrich from 4 to 7 p.m. Nov. 7 at Kirby's Private Dining, 1119 Parrett St., Evansville.

Helfrich's successor, Susan Dayton Vollmer, is an Evansville native who has been practicing law for 12 years.

Indiana Lawyer published a story about Helfrich's retirement in the April 30-May 13, 2008, edition.

  1. Contact Lea Shelemey attorney in porter county Indiana. She just helped us win our case...she is awesome...

  2. We won!!!! It was a long expensive battle but we did it. I just wanted people to know it is possible. And if someone can point me I. The right direction to help change the way the courts look as grandparents as only grandparents. The courts assume the parent does what is in the best interest of the child...and the court is wrong. A lot of the time it is spite and vindictiveness that separates grandparents and grandchildren. It should not have been this long and hard and expensive...Something needs to change...

  3. Typo on # of Indiana counties

  4. The Supreme Court is very proud that they are Giving a billion dollar public company from Texas who owns Odyssey a statewide monopoly which consultants have said is not unnecessary but worse they have already cost Hoosiers well over $100 MILLION, costing tens of millions every year and Odyssey is still not connected statewide which is in violation of state law. The Supreme Court is using taxpayer money and Odyssey to compete against a Hoosier company who has the only system in Indiana that is connected statewide and still has 40 of the 82 counties despite the massive spending and unnecessary attacks
