ISBA president opens new firm

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

After nearly 10 years working for a nationally known law firm in Terre Haute, Jeffry Lind, president of the Indiana State Bar Association, has opened his own practice.

The Lind Law Firm opened on June 6.

“The firm I’m currently with has a national Social Security practice, and they’re going great guns,” he told Indiana Lawyer on his last day at Fleschner Stark Tanoos & Newlin. “My practice is primarily non-Social Security, and building a firm is something I always wanted to do,” he said. 

“All firms have their own atmosphere or culture. No particular firm culture is necessarily bad, but it is my hope that starting from scratch will provide the opportunity to build a firm atmosphere and culture that fits well with the type of practice that I have and that my new firm branches out into,” Lind said.

Lind has hired a legal secretary, receptionist, and Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis graduate Matt Sheehan as an associate for the 3,500-square-foot Terre Haute office. Sheehan’s focus will be criminal defense and real estate law. Lind will handle general civil litigation and transactional issues.

Lind has lived and practiced law in Terre Haute since 1988. He graduated from DePaul University College of Law in 1988 and is licensed to practice in both Illinois and Indiana.•

  1. A sad end to a prolific gadfly. Indiana has suffered a great loss in the journalistic realm.

  2. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  3. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  4. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  5. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.
