Lewis Wooton’s diverse background, which includes working as a farmer, in a factory, and in a prosecutor’s office, allows him to bring a unique perspective to any situation. In the short time he’s been in practice, he’s gained an understanding of insurance coverage law that is far greater than most lawyers who are twice his age.

In 2012, I’d like to
continue to learn.

The best advice I could give a recent law school graduate is
volunteer for as many things as possible.

The three words that best describe me are
father, Hoosier and persistent.

My long-term career goal is
to have a career that is fulfilling and rewarding.

If I weren’t an attorney, I’d be
a teacher.

My escape from work is
golfing and spending time with my wife, Amanda, and my kids, Lillian and Andrew.

My mentor has taught me
be prepared, be honest and be practical. 

In the movie about my life, this actor would play me:
My favorite actor is Clint Eastwood, but my friends say one of the Baldwin brothers.

  1. Family court judges never fail to surprise me with their irrational thinking. First of all any man who abuses his wife is not fit to be a parent. A man who can't control his anger should not be allowed around his child unsupervised period. Just because he's never been convicted of abusing his child doesn't mean he won't and maybe he hasn't but a man that has such poor judgement and control is not fit to parent without oversight - only a moron would think otherwise. Secondly, why should the mother have to pay? He's the one who made the poor decisions to abuse and he should be the one to pay the price - monetarily and otherwise. Yes it's sad that the little girl may be deprived of her father, but really what kind of father is he - the one that abuses her mother the one that can't even step up and do what's necessary on his own instead the abused mother is to pay for him???? What is this Judge thinking? Another example of how this world rewards bad behavior and punishes those who do right. Way to go Judge - NOT.

  2. Right on. Legalize it. We can take billions away from the drug cartels and help reduce violence in central America and more unwanted illegal immigration all in one fell swoop. cut taxes on the savings from needless incarcerations. On and stop eroding our fourth amendment freedom or whatever's left of it.

  3. "...a switch from crop production to hog production "does not constitute a significant change."??? REALLY?!?! Any judge that cannot see a significant difference between a plant and an animal needs to find another line of work.

  4. Why do so many lawyers get away with lying in court, Jamie Yoak?

  5. Future generations will be amazed that we prosecuted people for possessing a harmless plant. The New York Times came out in favor of legalization in Saturday's edition of the newspaper.
