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. Based on several recent Indy Star articles, I would agree that being a case worker would be really hard. You would see the worst of humanity on a daily basis; and when things go wrong guess who gets blamed??!! Not biological parent!! Best of luck to those who entered that line of work.

  2. I was looking through some of your blog posts on this internet site and I conceive this web site is rattling informative ! Keep on posting . dfkcfdkdgbekdffe

  3. Don't believe me, listen to Pacino: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6bC9w9cH-M

  4. Law school is social control the goal to produce a social product. As such it began after the Revolution and has nearly ruined us to this day: "“Scarcely any political question arises in the United States which is not resolved, sooner or later, into a judicial question. Hence all parties are obliged to borrow, in their daily controversies, the ideas, and even the language, peculiar to judicial proceedings. As most public men [i.e., politicians] are, or have been, legal practitioners, they introduce the customs and technicalities of their profession into the management of public affairs. The jury extends this habitude to all classes. The language of the law thus becomes, in some measure, a vulgar tongue; the spirit of the law, which is produced in the schools and courts of justice, gradually penetrates beyond their walls into the bosom of society, where it descends to the lowest classes, so that at last the whole people contract the habits and the tastes of the judicial magistrate.” ? Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

  5. Attorney? Really? Or is it former attorney? Status with the Ind St Ct? Status with federal court, with SCOTUS? This is a legal newspaper, or should I look elsewhere?
