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. Based on several recent Indy Star articles, I would agree that being a case worker would be really hard. You would see the worst of humanity on a daily basis; and when things go wrong guess who gets blamed??!! Not biological parent!! Best of luck to those who entered that line of work.

  2. I was looking through some of your blog posts on this internet site and I conceive this web site is rattling informative ! Keep on posting . dfkcfdkdgbekdffe

  3. Don't believe me, listen to Pacino: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6bC9w9cH-M

  4. Law school is social control the goal to produce a social product. As such it began after the Revolution and has nearly ruined us to this day: "“Scarcely any political question arises in the United States which is not resolved, sooner or later, into a judicial question. Hence all parties are obliged to borrow, in their daily controversies, the ideas, and even the language, peculiar to judicial proceedings. As most public men [i.e., politicians] are, or have been, legal practitioners, they introduce the customs and technicalities of their profession into the management of public affairs. The jury extends this habitude to all classes. The language of the law thus becomes, in some measure, a vulgar tongue; the spirit of the law, which is produced in the schools and courts of justice, gradually penetrates beyond their walls into the bosom of society, where it descends to the lowest classes, so that at last the whole people contract the habits and the tastes of the judicial magistrate.” ? Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

  5. Attorney? Really? Or is it former attorney? Status with the Ind St Ct? Status with federal court, with SCOTUS? This is a legal newspaper, or should I look elsewhere?
