Todd Relue’s work ethic, responsiveness and ability to critically analyze complex issues have differentiated him from his peers. He is dedicated to all endeavors he undertakes – his work, his family and community service.

In 2012, I'd like to
become involved with the Judges and Lawyers Assistance Program. JLAP does great work furthering the profession by helping judges and attorneys address issues ranging from substance abuse to mental and physical health impairments to job transitions.

The best advice I could give a recent law school graduate is
to take advantage of our fantastic state and local bar associations.  In tough economic times, bar association dues may seem like just another expense, but the associations offer numerous leadership opportunities and connections to other attorneys and judges that are invaluable, especially for those just starting their careers.

The three words that best describe me are
dedicated, capable and creative.

My long-term career goal is
to develop a reputation as a knowledgeable and principled advocate who consistently provides sound legal advice to my clients.  I would also like to advance professionally within my firm and continue to take on more leadership roles that directly impact the members of the community in which I live and work.

If I weren’t an attorney, I would
probably be a doctor because, like the law, medicine involves the application of specialized knowledge and training to help people alleviate serious issues that are impacting their lives.

My escape from work is
running.

My mentor has taught me
the importance of extending opportunities to younger attorneys. 

In the movie about my life,
a younger Matt Damon would play me.

  1. I need an experienced attorney to handle a breach of contract matter. Kindly respond for more details. Graham Young

  2. I thought the slurs were the least grave aspects of her misconduct, since they had nothing to do with her being on the bench. Why then do I suspect they were the focus? I find this a troubling trend. At least she was allowed to keep her law license.

  3. Section 6 of Article I of the Indiana Constitution is pretty clear and unequivocal: "Section 6. No money shall be drawn from the treasury for the benefit of any religious or theological institution."

  4. Video pen? Nice work, "JW"! Let this be a lesson and a caution to all disgruntled ex-spouses (or soon-to-be ex-spouses) . . . you may think that altercation is going to get you some satisfaction . . . it will not.

  5. First comment on this thread is a fitting final comment on this thread, as that the MCBA never answered Duncan's fine question, and now even Eric Holder agrees that the MCBA was in material error as to the facts: "I don't get it" from Duncan December 1, 2014 5:10 PM "The Grand Jury met for 25 days and heard 70 hours of testimony according to this article and they made a decision that no crime occurred. On what basis does the MCBA conclude that their decision was "unjust"? What special knowledge or evidence does the MCBA have that the Grand Jury hearing this matter was unaware of? The system that we as lawyers are sworn to uphold made a decision that there was insufficient proof that officer committed a crime. How can any of us say we know better what was right than the jury that actually heard all of the the evidence in this case."
