Tireless effort, unique ideas, and a commitment to service are shared qualities within those selected to receive special honors at the Indianapolis Bar Association’s annual Recognition Luncheon.

The recipients of the President’s Award for Service to the IndyBar are Kenan Farrell of KLFLegal and Jason Reyome of A. Demos & J. Reyome Counselors at Law, for their extraordinary effort to bring creative, practical and significant programming and services to the solo and small firm practice membership.

This year’s President’s Award for Service to the Profession was awarded to Caperton Task Force for their thoughtful analysis of the Caperton decision and its possible future impact on judicial campaign contributions. The members of the Caperton Task Force included A. Scott Chinn of Baker & Daniels, James Dimos of Frost Brown Todd LLC, John Kautzman of Ruckelshaus Kautzman Blackwell Bemis & Hasbrook, Kevin McGoff of Bingham McHale LLP, Jimmie “Tic Tac” McMillian of Barnes & Thornburg LLP, Hon. Anthony Metz of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Indiana, and James Voyles of Voyles Zahn Paul Hogan & Merriman.

The Board of Directors Award was given to David Corbitt, Krieg DeVault LLP, for his leadership as Chair of the Diversity Job Fair since its inception in 2008, which has resulted in summer job offers within the Indianapolis legal community to approximately 75 law students from diverse backgrounds.

The law firm of Baker & Daniels, LLP and Eli Lilly & Company were singled out for the Dr. John Morton Finney Jr. Award for Excellence in Legal Education for their effort in support of the Street Law program. Hosted at Shortridge Magnet High School for Law & Public Policy, the program helps high school students learn real-world application of civil law while promoting law as a career.

Finally, for her sustained leadership as an active member of the Bar’s Young Lawyers Division, Elizabeth Schuerman, Tabbert Hahn Earnest & Weddle, was named the Young Lawyer of the Year.•

  1. The Department of Education still has over $100 million of ITT Education Services money in the form of $100+ million Letters of Credit. That money was supposed to be used by The DOE to help students. The DOE did nothing to help students. The DOE essentially stole the money from ITT Tech and still has the money. The trustee should be going after the DOE to get the money back for people who are owed that money, including shareholders.

  2. Do you know who the sponsor of the last-minute amendment was?

  3. Law firms of over 50 don't deliver good value, thats what this survey really tells you. Anybody that has seen what they bill for compared to what they deliver knows that already, however.

  4. My husband left me and the kids for 2 years, i did everything humanly possible to get him back i prayed i even fasted nothing worked out. i was so diver-stated, i was left with nothing no money to pay for kids up keep. my life was tearing apart. i head that he was trying to get married to another lady in Italy, i look for urgent help then i found Dr.Mack in the internet by accident, i was skeptical because i don’t really believe he can bring husband back because its too long we have contacted each other, we only comment on each other status on Facebook and when ever he come online he has never talks anything about coming back to me, i really had to give Dr.Mack a chance to help me out, luckily for me he was God sent and has made everything like a dream to me, Dr.Mack told me that everything will be fine, i called him and he assured me that my Husband will return, i was having so many doubt but now i am happy,i can’t believe it my husband broke up with his Italian lady and he is now back to me and he can’t even stay a minute without me, all he said to me was that he want me back, i am really happy and i cried so much because it was unbelievable, i am really happy and my entire family are happy for me but they never know whats the secret behind this…i want you all divorce lady or single mother, unhappy relationship to please contact this man for help and everything will be fine i really guarantee you….if you want to contact him you can reach him through dr.mac@yahoo. com..,

  5. As one of the many consumers affected by this breach, I found my bank data had been lifted and used to buy over $200 of various merchandise in New York. I did a pretty good job of tracing the purchases to stores around a college campus just from the info on my bank statement. Hm. Mr. Hill, I would like my $200 back! It doesn't belong to the state, in my opinion. Give it back to the consumers affected. I had to freeze my credit and take out data protection, order a new debit card and wait until it arrived. I deserve something for my trouble!
