Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

It’s already that time of year, when attention turns to nominating the Indianapolis Bar Association Board of Directors slate. Because Indybar members are the greatest resource in identifying future leaders, a request for nominations has been issued. Each Indybar member is encouraged to submit the name(s) of any Indybar attorney member for nomination to any of the following offices:

1st Vice President (serves one-year term and will automatically assume the office of President-elect in 2013)

Secretary (two-year term, 2011 and 2012); and

At-Large Member of Board of Managers (five positions, each two-year terms, 2011 and 2012)

ABA Delegate (one-year term, 2011).

The Nominating Committee will endeavor to choose a slate of nominees, which reflects the Indybar’s geographic, ethnic, minority, gender and practice area diversity while recognizing leadership and service to the Indianapolis Bar Association. Serving on this year’s Nominating Committee are Chair George Plews of Plews Shadley Racher & Braun, Hon. Cale Bradford of the Indiana Court of Appeals, Hon. Annie Christ-Garcia of the Marion Superior Court, Ryan Gardner an attorney at law, Doug Hill of Hill Fulwider McDowell Funk & Matthews, Mary Panszi of Lewis Wagner LLP and Steve Peters of Harrison & Moberly LLP.

In 2009, the Nominating Committee received over 30 letters of interest. A number of goals for the 2011 Board have already been identified and will include the widening of member services, enhanced communications with members regarding the programs and activities available through the Indybar, and the enhancement of the image and awareness of the Indybar and its members in our metropolitan area.

Nominations should be forwarded to Indybar Nominating Committee, 135 N. Pennsylvania Street, Suite 1500, Indianapolis, IN 46204, email jarmstrong@indybar.org, or fax 317-269-1915. They must be received by September 1, 2010.•

  1. Unfortunately, the court doesn't understand the difference between ebidta and adjusted ebidta as they clearly got the ruling wrong based on their misunderstanding

  2. A common refrain in the comments on this website comes from people who cannot locate attorneys willing put justice over retainers. At the same time the judiciary threatens to make pro bono work mandatory, seemingly noting the same concern. But what happens to attorneys who have the chumptzah to threatened the legal status quo in Indiana? Ask Gary Welch, ask Paul Ogden, ask me. Speak truth to power, suffer horrendously accordingly. No wonder Hoosier attorneys who want to keep in good graces merely chase the dollars ... the powers that be have no concerns as to those who are ever for sale to the highest bidder ... for those even willing to compromise for $$$ never allow either justice or constitutionality to cause them to stand up to injustice or unconstitutionality. And the bad apples in the Hoosier barrel, like this one, just keep rotting.

  3. I am one of Steele's victims and was taken for $6,000. I want my money back due to him doing nothing for me. I filed for divorce after a 16 year marriage and lost everything. My kids, my home, cars, money, pension. Every attorney I have talked to is not willing to help me. What can I do? I was told i can file a civil suit but you have to have all of Steelers info that I don't have. Of someone can please help me or tell me what info I need would be great.

  4. It would appear that news breaking on Drudge from the Hoosier state (link below) ties back to this Hoosier story from the beginning of the recent police disrespect period .... MCBA president Cassandra Bentley McNair issued the statement on behalf of the association Dec. 1. The association said it was “saddened and disappointed” by the decision not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for shooting Michael Brown. “The MCBA does not believe this was a just outcome to this process, and is disheartened that the system we as lawyers are intended to uphold failed the African-American community in such a way,” the association stated. “This situation is not just about the death of Michael Brown, but the thousands of other African-Americans who are disproportionately targeted and killed by police officers.” http://www.thestarpress.com/story/news/local/2016/07/18/hate-cops-sign-prompts-controversy/87242664/

  5. What form or who do I talk to about a d felony which I hear is classified as a 6 now? Who do I talk to. About to get my degree and I need this to go away it's been over 7 years if that helps.
