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. Hey 2 psychs is never enough, since it is statistically unlikely that three will ever agree on anything! New study admits this pseudo science is about as scientifically valid as astrology ... done by via fortune cookie ....John Ioannidis, professor of health research and policy at Stanford University, said the study was impressive and that its results had been eagerly awaited by the scientific community. “Sadly, the picture it paints - a 64% failure rate even among papers published in the best journals in the field - is not very nice about the current status of psychological science in general, and for fields like social psychology it is just devastating,” he said. http://www.theguardian.com/science/2015/aug/27/study-delivers-bleak-verdict-on-validity-of-psychology-experiment-results

  2. Indianapolis Bar Association President John Trimble and I are on the same page, but it is a very large page with plenty of room for others to join us. As my final Res Gestae article will express in more detail in a few days, the Great Recession hastened a fundamental and permanent sea change for the global legal service profession. Every state bar is facing the same existential questions that thrust the medical profession into national healthcare reform debates. The bench, bar, and law schools must comprehensively reconsider how we define the practice of law and what it means to access justice. If the three principals of the legal service profession do not recast the vision of their roles and responsibilities soon, the marketplace will dictate those roles and responsibilities without regard for the public interests that the legal profession professes to serve.

  3. I have met some highly placed bureaucrats who vehemently disagree, Mr. Smith. This is not your father's time in America. Some ideas are just too politically incorrect too allow spoken, says those who watch over us for the good of their concept of order.

  4. Lets talk about this without forgetting that Lawyers, too, have FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND ASSOCIATION

  5. Baer filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals Seventh Circuit on April 30 2015. When will this be decided? How many more appeals does this guy have? Unbelievable this is dragging on like this.
