IL staff reporter Rebecca Berfanger wrote this post.

The Indiana State Bar Association invited me to attend the ninth Solo and Small Firm Conference in Merrillville last week. I attended the same event in southeastern Indiana last year so I didn't hesitate to tell them to count me in.

After spending Friday meeting with solo and small firm practitioners from around the state and observing a little more than the equivalent of five hours of CLE I can say I now have a number of story ideas and sources for the coming year.

Other than a wrap up of the event in the June 23 issue, I'll likely cover retirement more in depth, surrogate attorney rule best practices, data security issues, and other interesting issues that solo and small firm attorneys might need to handle differently than other lawyers.

If you were there this weekend, what were some of your highlights? Donald Fehr, who represented baseball players? American Bar Association author Jay Foonberg, who wrote the book on starting a new practice? ISBA President Rod Morgan's state of the bar discussion? The boot camps on Thursday? Post them here, or e-mail me, rberfanger@ibj.com.

  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

  5. Here's a recent resource regarding steps that should be taken for removal from the IN sex offender registry. I haven't found anything as comprehensive as of yet. Hopefully this is helpful - http://www.chjrlaw.com/removal-indiana-sex-offender-registry/
