IBA: Nod to Professionalism

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

For his career-long dedication to protecting the rights of Indiana’s older citizens and furthering the field of elder law.
 

frick-dennis-mug Frick

Frick, a senior attorney with Indiana Legal Services, Inc. and director of its Senior Law Project, has been advocating for the rights of elderly Indiana residents for most of his career, whether in the form of helping these residents secure Medicaid benefits, serving as an ombudsman for nursing home disputes, or educating attorneys on their legal rights.

“People tend to turn to Dennis because he is such a master of the law,” says private practice attorney Claire Lewis, who preceded Frick as director of the project before starting her own firm. “He’s extremely generous with his time,” says Ronald Dyer, who has practiced elder law for fifteen years.

Frick joined Indiana Legal Services after graduating from the University of Chicago School of Law in 1979. He is a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and a past chair of the Indiana State Bar Association’s elder law section.

  1. I just wanted to point out that Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner, Senator Feinstein, former Senate majority leader Bill Frist, and former attorney general John Ashcroft are responsible for this rubbish. We need to keep a eye on these corrupt, arrogant, and incompetent fools.

  2. Well I guess our politicians have decided to give these idiot federal prosecutors unlimited power. Now if I guy bounces a fifty-dollar check, the U.S. attorney can intentionally wait for twenty-five years or so and have the check swabbed for DNA and file charges. These power hungry federal prosecutors now have unlimited power to mess with people. we can thank Wisconsin's Jim Sensenbrenner and Diane Feinstein, John Achcroft and Bill Frist for this one. Way to go, idiots.

  3. I wonder if the USSR had electronic voting machines that changed the ballot after it was cast? Oh well, at least we have a free media serving as vicious watchdog and exposing all of the rot in the system! (Insert rimshot)

  4. Jose, you are assuming those in power do not wish to be totalitarian. My experience has convinced me otherwise. Constitutionalists are nearly as rare as hens teeth among the powerbrokers "managing" us for The Glorious State. Oh, and your point is dead on, el correcta mundo. Keep the Founders’ (1791 & 1851) vision alive, my friend, even if most all others, and especially the ruling junta, chase only power and money (i.e. mammon)

  5. Hypocrisy in high places, absolute immunity handed out like Halloween treats (it is the stuff of which tyranny is made) and the belief that government agents are above the constitutions and cannot be held responsible for mere citizen is killing, perhaps has killed, The Republic. And yet those same power drunk statists just reel on down the hallway toward bureaucratic fascism.
