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. Major social engineering imposed by judicial order well in advance of democratic change, has been the story of the whole post ww2 period. Contraception, desegregation, abortion, gay marriage: all rammed down the throats of Americans who didn't vote to change existing laws on any such thing, by the unelected lifetime tenure Supreme court heirarchs. Maybe people came to accept those things once imposed upon them, but, that's accommodation not acceptance; and surely not democracy. So let's quit lying to the kids telling them this is a democracy. Some sort of oligarchy, but no democracy that's for sure, and it never was. A bourgeois republic from day one.

  2. JD Massur, yes, brings to mind a similar stand at a Texas Mission in 1836. Or Vladivostok in 1918. As you seemingly gloat, to the victors go the spoils ... let the looting begin, right?

  3. I always wondered why high fence deer hunting was frowned upon? I guess you need to keep the population steady. If you don't, no one can enjoy hunting! Thanks for the post! Fence

  4. Whether you support "gay marriage" or not is not the issue. The issue is whether the SCOTUS can extract from an unmentionable somewhere the notion that the Constitution forbids government "interference" in the "right" to marry. Just imagine time-traveling to Philadelphia in 1787. Ask James Madison if the document he and his fellows just wrote allowed him- or forbade government to "interfere" with- his "right" to marry George Washington? He would have immediately- and justly- summoned the Sergeant-at-Arms to throw your sorry self out into the street. Far from being a day of liberation, this is a day of capitulation by the Rule of Law to the Rule of What's Happening Now.

  5. With today's ruling, AG Zoeller's arguments in the cases of Obamacare and Same-sex Marriage can be relegated to the ash heap of history. 0-fer
