Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Evansville Bar Association, along with the Volunteer Lawyer Program of Southwestern Indiana, presented awards for service and pro bono work to attorneys at a lunch Wednesday.

Attorneys Jean Blanton, Allyson Breeden, and Jennifer Elston were given the Susan K. Helfrich Award for Excellence in Pro Bono Services. The attorneys, all from Ziemer Stayman Weitzel & Shoulders, were recognized by the Volunteer Lawyer Program of Southwestern Indiana for their unwavering dedication to providing pro bono services to residents of Southwestern Indiana.

The EBA presented the Doran Perdue Service Award to Dan J. Carwile in recognition of his leadership in the development of the 100th anniversary project of the Evansville Bar Association. He's also chaired the fundraising efforts among EBA members to restore the Superior Court courtroom in the Old Courthouse. As part of the Old Courthouse Foundation project, the bar association is working to memorialize the history of law in Vanderburgh County, which will be on permanent display in the foyer of the Superior Court courtroom. The Doran Perdue Service Award honors those members who have provided outstanding service to the association.

Donna M. Curtis, legal secretary at McFadin Higgins & Foltz in Mt. Vernon, was given the Florence Britzius Legal Secretary Award for her commitment to the profession and the legal community. Curtis, who's been a legal secretary for 30 years, has attended numerous seminars to improve her skills, and served as a mentor to other legal secretaries.

  1. Major social engineering imposed by judicial order well in advance of democratic change, has been the story of the whole post ww2 period. Contraception, desegregation, abortion, gay marriage: all rammed down the throats of Americans who didn't vote to change existing laws on any such thing, by the unelected lifetime tenure Supreme court heirarchs. Maybe people came to accept those things once imposed upon them, but, that's accommodation not acceptance; and surely not democracy. So let's quit lying to the kids telling them this is a democracy. Some sort of oligarchy, but no democracy that's for sure, and it never was. A bourgeois republic from day one.

  2. JD Massur, yes, brings to mind a similar stand at a Texas Mission in 1836. Or Vladivostok in 1918. As you seemingly gloat, to the victors go the spoils ... let the looting begin, right?

  3. I always wondered why high fence deer hunting was frowned upon? I guess you need to keep the population steady. If you don't, no one can enjoy hunting! Thanks for the post! Fence

  4. Whether you support "gay marriage" or not is not the issue. The issue is whether the SCOTUS can extract from an unmentionable somewhere the notion that the Constitution forbids government "interference" in the "right" to marry. Just imagine time-traveling to Philadelphia in 1787. Ask James Madison if the document he and his fellows just wrote allowed him- or forbade government to "interfere" with- his "right" to marry George Washington? He would have immediately- and justly- summoned the Sergeant-at-Arms to throw your sorry self out into the street. Far from being a day of liberation, this is a day of capitulation by the Rule of Law to the Rule of What's Happening Now.

  5. With today's ruling, AG Zoeller's arguments in the cases of Obamacare and Same-sex Marriage can be relegated to the ash heap of history. 0-fer
