R. Anthony Prather, a partner at Barnes & Thornburg LLP, exhibits the courtesy and community involvement that form two of the Standards of Professionalism of the Indianapolis Bar Association. In representing employers in the often-contentious field of labor and employment law, he maintains a highly professional and courteous approach to opposing counsel. Even though a conversation with Tony may involve a disagreement, the conversation itself is always a pleasure. He brings that personal touch not only to his service to his clients but also to the service he provides our legal community through his duties on the Disciplinary Commission of the Indiana Supreme Court. Barnes & Thornburg’s Managing Partner, Alan Levin, points out “that Tony not only conducts himself in the highest professional fashion with firm clients, he works diligently on teaching our young lawyers the importance of professionalism in their dealings at the law firm as well as in their professional life.”

Prather, a 1980 graduate of Indiana University and a 1983 graduate of the Indiana University Maurer School of Law, also serves as a member of the Board of Visitors of the Maurer School of Law, as well a member of the Bob Sanders Foundation.•

    I have had cases with Mr. Prather. The description of his professionalism and courtesy as an attorney couldn't be more off base. I found him extremely unprofessional and abrasive. He was very difficult to get along with. I hope the bar association isn't endorsing this description which obviously came from a partner at Barnes & Thornburg, not someone who has dealt with Mr. Prather on the other side of a lawsuit.

  1. It is amazing how selectively courts can read cases and how two very similar factpatterns can result in quite different renderings. I cited this very same argument in Brown v. Bowman, lost. I guess it is panel, panel, panel when one is on appeal. Sad thing is, I had Sykes. Same argument, she went the opposite. Her Rooker-Feldman jurisprudence is now decidedly unintelligible.

  2. November, 2014, I was charged with OWI/Endangering a person. I was not given a Breathalyzer test and the arresting officer did not believe that alcohol was in any way involved. I was self-overmedicated with prescription medications. I was taken to local hospital for blood draw to be sent to State Tox Lab. My attorney gave me a cookie-cutter plea which amounts to an ALCOHOL-related charge. Totally unacceptable!! HOW can I get my TOX report from the state lab???

  3. My mother got temporary guardianship of my children in 2012. my husband and I got divorced 2015 the judge ordered me to have full custody of all my children. Does this mean the temporary guardianship is over? I'm confused because my divorce papers say I have custody and he gets visits and i get to claim the kids every year on my taxes. So just wondered since I have in black and white that I have custody if I can go get my kids from my moms and not go to jail?

  4. Someone off their meds? C'mon John, it is called the politics of Empire. Get with the program, will ya? How can we build one world under secularist ideals without breaking a few eggs? Of course, once it is fully built, is the American public who will feel the deadly grip of the velvet glove. One cannot lay down with dogs without getting fleas. The cup of wrath is nearly full, John Smith, nearly full. Oops, there I go, almost sounding as alarmist as Smith. Guess he and I both need to listen to this again: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRnQ65J02XA

  5. Charles Rice was one of the greatest of the so-called great generation in America. I was privileged to count him among my mentors. He stood firm for Christ and Christ's Church in the Spirit of Thomas More, always quick to be a good servant of the King, but always God's first. I had Rice come speak to 700 in Fort Wayne as Obama took office. Rice was concerned that this rise of aggressive secularism and militant Islam were dual threats to Christendom,er, please forgive, I meant to say "Western Civilization". RIP Charlie. You are safe at home.
