Founding attorney’s move to join mediation group will change law firm name

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

The Indianapolis law office of Collignon Dietrick P.C. will be undergoing a transition as one of its shareholders prepares to exit.  

Tom Collignon has announced he will be leaving the firm to join The Mediation Group in January 2014. He plans to continue mediating commercial, construction, personal injury and family cases at his downtown office and at The Mediation Group’s Keystone at the Crossing offices.  

Collignon Dietrick will become Dietrick Law P.C. at the end of 2013.

Patrick Dietrick said he was sad to see his law partner leave but is “exceedingly happy” Collignon has this opportunity.

Neil Bemenderfer, founding member of The Mediation Group, said his practice was delighted to be welcoming Collignon. “He’s a great guy, a terrific lawyer and has been mediating civil and family cases for some time,” Bemenderfer said. “He brings a lot of energy.”

The Mediation Group was founded in 2000. It currently has eight attorneys and offers alternative dispute resolution services throughout the Midwest.

The current location of Collignon Dietrick, at 310 N. Alabama St., will become home to both The Mediation Group and Dietrick Law. The space is too big for one firm, Dietrick said, so it will be divided with his office taking a portion and The Mediation Group setting up in the other part.

  1. Frankly, it is tragic that you are even considering going to an expensive, unaccredited "law school." It is extremely difficult to get a job with a degree from a real school. If you are going to make the investment of time, money, and tears into law school, it should not be to a place that won't actually enable you to practice law when you graduate.

  2. As a lawyer who grew up in Fort Wayne (but went to a real law school), it is not that hard to find a mentor in the legal community without your school's assistance. One does not need to pay tens of thousands of dollars to go to an unaccredited legal diploma mill to get a mentor. Having a mentor means precisely nothing if you cannot get a job upon graduation, and considering that the legal job market is utterly terrible, these students from Indiana Tech are going to be adrift after graduation.

  3. 700,000 to 800,000 Americans are arrested for marijuana possession each year in the US. Do we need a new justice center if we decriminalize marijuana by having the City Council enact a $100 fine for marijuana possession and have the money go towards road repair?

  4. I am sorry to hear this.

  5. I tried a case in Judge Barker's court many years ago and I recall it vividly as a highlight of my career. I don't get in federal court very often but found myself back there again last Summer. We had both aged a bit but I must say she was just as I had remembered her. Authoritative, organized and yes, human ...with a good sense of humor. I also appreciated that even though we were dealing with difficult criminal cases, she treated my clients with dignity and understanding. My clients certainly respected her. Thanks for this nice article. Congratulations to Judge Barker for reaching another milestone in a remarkable career.
