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.
