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.
