IBA: Nod to professionalism

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Chris Scanlon has earned the reputation as an adept litigator of complex cases. Clients turn to Chris when they require the best possible representation in a significant litigation battle. It is to his credit that he is also regarded as the consummate professional and gentleman, despite being the go-to guy when the stakes are high.

Chris serves the courts on the Indiana Supreme Court Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure and on the Southern District Local Rules Advisory Committee. He also participates in bar association activities and in the leadership of his law firm, Baker and Daniels, serving on the Strategic Policy Board. His community service includes such worthy efforts as one of a team of volunteers who taught civil law to 10th grade students at Shortridge Law & Public Policy Magnet School last fall.

Justice Ted Boehm, a long time colleague and fan of Chris observes: “Chris and I worked closely together for his first eight years at Baker & Daniels, sometimes under considerable pressure. He always displayed patience, courtesy and good humor in dealing with clients, adversaries, and colleagues alike. He is most deserving of recognition for professionalism.”

  1. Is it possible to amend an order for child support due to false paternity?

  2. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  3. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  4. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  5. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!
