Michael Bishop is among a select group of attorneys who have made a significant impact on the evolution of Indiana law. A precedent-setting 2010 appellate court decision enabled adopted children to be treated the same as biological children for purposes of receiving inheritance under a trust, and it is heralded as an example of the commitment Michael has shown to children and families in his over 30 years practicing law. Respect for his work and service to state and national legal organizations reaches far beyond the boundaries of his firm, city or state.

The best advice I ever received was
spend as much time turning down a case as you do accepting one.

I wish I had known when I graduated law school that
the practice of law is a business as well as a profession.

My best stress reliever is
running, cycling and working out.

If I weren’t a lawyer, I’d be
a professional bass player.

In 2012, I’d like to
enjoy my daughter’s wedding this fall.

The three words that best describe me are
funny, dependable and determined.

In the movie about my life, this actor would play me:
George Clooney.

In my community, I’m passionate about
children’s rights, family and my faith.

  1. OK, now do something about this preverted anacronism

  2. William Hartley prosecutor of Wabash county constantly violates people rights. Withholds statement's, is bias towards certain people. His actions have ruined lives and families. In this county you question him or go out of town for a lawyer,he finds a way to make things worse for you. Unfair,biased and crooked.

  3. why is the State trying to play GOD? Automatic sealing of a record is immoral. People should have the right to decide how to handle a record. the state is playing GOD. I have searched for decades, then you want me to pay someone a huge price to contact my son. THIS is extortion and gestapo control. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW.

  4. I haven't made some of the best choices in the last two years I have been to marion county jail 1 and two on three different occasions each time of release dates I've spent 48 to 72 hours after date of release losing a job being denied my freedom after ordered please help

  5. Out here in Kansas, where I now work as a government attorney, we are nearing the end of a process that could have relevance in this matter: "Senate Bill 45 would allow any adult otherwise able to possess a handgun under state and federal laws to carry that gun concealed as a matter of course without a permit. This move, commonly called constitutional carry, would elevate the state to the same club that Vermont, Arizona, Alaska and Wyoming have joined in the past generation."
