Happy Holidays! Hopefully, this is the time of year that each of us can catch our breath and focus on how fortunate we are to be able to participate in this profession. Moreover, we are blessed to live in a vibrant and progressive community that boasts a wealth of legal and civic-minded “talent”. In the opinion of those of us who have served on the Foundation Board with him in 2010, John Maley’s name would have to go right at the top of that list.

Adoption of New Strategic IBF Plan

Here is what will come as no surprise to those who know him: John has used his considerable philanthropic skills and keen intellect to guide the IBF Board as its 2010 President into a period of transformative growth that will result in a subtle yet important restructuring. This change will allow the IBF Board to focus and increase its philanthropic mission in the years to come. It will spawn the creation of a new committee – the Impact Fund Committee – which will be populated by designated IBF officers and directors, specified IBF Committee Chairs and “at-large” members who are not members of the IBF Board. This committee will evaluate and explore ways to strengthen the IBF Board’s ability to support and promote many of the existing good works of IndyBar members (i.e., pro bono, Legal Lines, Ask a Lawyer, naturalization ceremonies, etc.) while seeking out new, innovative and focused ways to use IBF funds to provide the greatest impact for your charitable giving. This strategic path was approved by the IBF Board at its most recent meeting.

How You Can Help

Admittedly, few can claim to come close to the level of John Maley’s many contributions to the Indianapolis Bar Foundation and the IndyBar. What each of us can do, however, is to generously provide financial support to the IBF. As you know, there is no better time to do that then the present, in this season of giving. I would encourage each of you to dig deeply in order to support the efforts and mission of the IBF. As a Board, we commit to utilize those funds in ways that will make you proud to have contributed them.

In addition, when you see him, please thank John for his incredible service to the IBF. As you would expect, as Foundation Board President, John represented all of us in a manner that made us extremely proud to be counted as his colleagues. Please help us in displaying our gratitude for his efforts by writing a generous check to the Indianapolis Bar Foundation as part of your 2010 giving.

  1. Unlike the federal judge who refused to protect me, the Virginia State Bar gave me a hearing. After the hearing, the Virginia State Bar refused to discipline me. VSB said that attacking me with the court ADA coordinator had, " all the grace and charm of a drive-by shooting." One does wonder why the VSB was able to have a hearing and come to that conclusion, but the federal judge in Indiana slammed the door of the courthouse in my face.

  2. what a wonderful world we are living, i still doubt this spell caster how he did it!!! i am Shechan Caroline am from Los Angeles I am so happy to let the whole word know how this powerful spell caster saved my marriage.Everything was going down the drain as my husband can not stop cheating on me with other women. It became used to always heating on me. I tried to make him stop, but I couldn't help the situation, the more I tried, the harder it becomes. At times we will fight and go apart for some months and we will come back again just because of our kids. One day a friend told me about this spell caster who helped her too, his name is Dr.oku, she said he uses white magic spells to solve spiritual problems. I decided to give it a try, I contacted him and he told me it will take just 2 to 3 days and I will see great changes in my husband. He actually cast a spell, believe me after 2 to 3 days of the spell, my husband was confessing different names of woman he has slept with. He begged for forgiveness and never to try it again. From that day till now, my mind is at rest. My husband dislike every other women on earth except me. And am so happy to have him for myself alone.The spell caster’s contact is okutemple@gmail.com or add him on whasapp +2347053113465?

  3. I agree. My husband has almost the exact same situation. Age states and all.

  4. Thanks Jim. We surprised ourselves with the first album, so we did a second one. We are releasing it 6/30/17 at the HiFi. The reviews so far are amazing! www.itsjustcraig.com Skope Mag: It’s Just Craig offers a warm intimacy with the tender folk of “Dark Corners”. Rather lovely in execution, It’s Just Craig opts for a full, rich sound. Quite ornate instrumentally, the songs unfurl with such grace and style. Everything about the album feels real and fully lived. By far the highlight of the album are the soft smooth reassuring vocals whose highly articulate lyrics have a dreamy quality to them. Stories emerge out of these small snapshots of reflective moments.... A wide variety of styles are utilized, with folk anchoring it but allowing for chamber pop, soundtrack work, and found electronics filtering their way into the mix. Without a word, It’s Just Craig sets the tone of the album with the warble of “Intro”. From there things get truly started with the hush of “Go”. Building up into a great structure, “Go” has a kindness to it. Organs glisten in the distance on the fragile textures of “Alone” whose light melody adds to the song’s gorgeousness. A wonderful bloom of color defines the spaciousness of “Captain”. Infectious grooves take hold on the otherworldly origins of “Goodnight” with precise drum work giving the song a jazzy feeling. Hazy to its very core is the tragedy of “Leaving Now”. By far the highlight of the album comes with the closing impassioned “Thirty-Nine” where many layers of sound work together possessing a poetic quality.
