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. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  2. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  3. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  4. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  5. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?
