Kyra Wagoner is like most attorneys who are Type-A, highly ambitious and organized, but her passion for education and learning nuances of the law make her stand out. She has the potential to be an industry leader and trailblazer for women in the commercial real estate industry.

In 2012, I’d like to
complete a sprint triathlon. 

The best advice I could give a recent law school graduate is
pursue what really interests you. There are many ways to utilize a law degree, and you will not be happy working hard if you do not love what you are doing. 

The three words that best describe me are
diligent, compassionate and unflappable.

My long-term career goal is
to be a prominent commercial real estate attorney in Indiana and be in a position where I can be an agent of change in my community.

If I weren’t an attorney, I’d be
a producer of a television show on either the Travel Channel or HGTV.

My mentor has taught me
to take control of my career.  It is my responsibility to make sure I am doing the work that I want to do. 

My escape from work is
music. 

In the movie about my life,
Tina Fey would play me.

  1. Why are all these lawyers yakking to the media about pending matters? Trial by media? What the devil happened to not making extrajudicial statements? The system is falling apart.

  2. It is a sad story indeed as this couple has been only in survival mode, NOT found guilty with Ponzi, shaken down for 5 years and pursued by prosecution that has been ignited by a civil suit with very deep pockets wrenched in their bitterness...It has been said that many of us are breaking an average of 300 federal laws a day without even knowing it. Structuring laws, & civilForfeiture laws are among the scariest that need to be restructured or repealed . These laws were initially created for drug Lords and laundering money and now reach over that line. Here you have a couple that took out their own money, not drug money, not laundering. Yes...Many upset that they lost money...but how much did they make before it all fell apart? No one ask that question? A civil suit against Williams was awarded because he has no more money to fight...they pushed for a break in order...they took all his belongings...even underwear, shoes and clothes? who does that? What allows that? Maybe if you had the picture of him purchasing a jacket at the Goodwill just to go to court the next day...his enemy may be satisfied? But not likely...bitterness is a master. For happy ending lovers, you will be happy to know they have a faith that has changed their world and a solid love that many of us can only dream about. They will spend their time in federal jail for taking their money from their account, but at the end of the day they have loyal friends, a true love and a hope of a new life in time...and none of that can be bought or taken That is the real story.

  3. Could be his email did something especially heinous, really over the top like questioning Ind S.Ct. officials or accusing JLAP of being the political correctness police.

  4. Sounds like overkill to me, too. Do the feds not have enough "real" crime to keep them busy?

  5. We live in the world that has become wider in sense of business and competition. Everything went into the Web in addition to the existing physical global challenges in business. I heard that one of the latest innovations is moving to VDR - cloud-based security-protected repositories. Of course virtual data rooms comparison is required if you want to pick up the best one.
