Mary Solada inspires strength through example. She exemplifies the work ethic and determination required to achieve great things. During her nearly 30 years practicing real estate, zoning and planning law, she has logged many professional achievements. Most recently, Mary’s election as managing partner of Bingham Greenebaum Doll’s Indianapolis office earned her a place in the firm’s history as the first female named to that position. She is known as a fierce and loyal advocate for her firm, her clients and her community.

The best advice I ever received was
think first, speak second.

I wish I had known when I graduated law school that
clients need constant care and feeding.

My best stress reliever is
hitting golf balls.

If I weren’t a lawyer, I’d be
a city manager.

In 2012, I’d like to
continue to improve at whatever I do everyday!

The three words that best describe me are
dedicated, loyal and determined.

In the movie about my life,
Susan Sarandon would play me.

In my community, I’m passionate about
improving literacy rates in Indianapolis Public Schools.

  1. My daughters' kids was removed from the home in March 2015, she has been in total compliance with the requirements of cps, she is going to court on the 4th of August. Cps had called the first team meeting last Monday to inform her that she was not in compliance, by not attending home based therapy, which is done normally with the children in the home, and now they are recommending her to have a psych evaluation, and they are also recommending that the children not be returned to the home. This is all bull hockey. In this so called team meeting which I did attend for the best interest of my child and grandbabies, I learned that no matter how much she does that cps is not trying to return the children and the concerns my daughter has is not important to cps, they only told her that she is to do as they say and not to resist or her rights will be terminated. I cant not believe the way Cps treats people knowing if they threaten you with loosing your kids you will do anything to get them back. My daughter is drug free she has never put her hands on any of her children she does not scream at her babies at all, but she is only allowed to see her kids 6 hours a week and someone has to supervise. Lets all tske a stand against the child protection services. THEY CAN NO LONGER TAKE CHILDREN FROM THERE PARENTS.

  2. Planned Parenthood has the government so trained . . .

  3. In a related story, an undercover video team released this footage of the government's search of the Planned Parenthood facilities. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXVN7QJ8m88

  4. Here is an excellent movie for those wanting some historical context, as well as encouragement to stand against dominant political forces and knaves who carry the staves of governance to enforce said dominance: http://www.copperheadthemovie.com/

  5. Not enough copperheads here to care anymore, is my guess. Otherwise, a totally pointless gesture. ... Oh wait: was this done because somebody want to avoid bad press - or was it that some weak kneed officials cravenly fear "protest" violence by "urban youths.."
