David P. Lynch is as comfortable helping clients feed their farm animals while discussing legal matters as he is sitting in a courtroom or at a conference table. All he asks is that they let him know what is best for them, he jokes, so he wears the right shoes. David has a knack for making his clients feel at ease and comfortable. He had his own practice before recently joining Amy Noe Law. David also regularly takes cases knowing he may never be paid and never seeks credit for helping with these matters. He also knows quite a bit about fireworks law – he works as legal counsel and consultant for his family’s fireworks import business. David is active in the Indiana State Bar Association, participating in five committees.

Would a world without 24/7 technology be a good or bad thing?
I was an archaeologist before I went to law school, and I have always romanticized the past. Good thing!

You deal with fireworks as legal counsel for your family’s business. What is your favorite firework?
There’s nothing like Yung Feng’s Nishiki Kamuro shells. Huge, dense, perfectly symmetrical.

If you could go back in time, “when” would you go to and what would you do?
I would like to see how ceramic technology and ornamentation developed in the late prehistoric period in eastern North America (probably around 1200 AD) as agriculture began to allow more sedentary existence and establishment of more-or-less permanent villages. 

What’s the most important thing your mentor has taught you?
She’s taught me quite a lot, but the most important thing is that I don’t have to pretend to be someone that I’m not to be a good lawyer and a leader in my community. 

If you could take a sabbatical from the law for a year to work your fantasy job, what job would you choose?
I would like to work at a restaurant specializing in molecular gastronomy.

  1. It appears the police and prosecutors are allowed to change the rules halfway through the game to suit themselves. I am surprised that the congress has not yet eliminated the right to a trial in cases involving any type of forensic evidence. That would suit their foolish law and order police state views. I say we eliminate the statute of limitations for crimes committed by members of congress and other government employees. Of course they would never do that. They are all corrupt cowards!!!

  2. Poor Judge Brown probably thought that by slavishly serving the godz of the age her violations of 18th century concepts like due process and the rule of law would be overlooked. Mayhaps she was merely a Judge ahead of her time?

  3. in a lawyer discipline case Judge Brown, now removed, was presiding over a hearing about a lawyer accused of the supposedly heinous ethical violation of saying the words "Illegal immigrant." (IN re Barker) http://www.in.gov/judiciary/files/order-discipline-2013-55S00-1008-DI-429.pdf .... I wonder if when we compare the egregious violations of due process by Judge Brown, to her chiding of another lawyer for politically incorrectness, if there are any conclusions to be drawn about what kind of person, what kind of judge, what kind of apparatchik, is busy implementing the agenda of political correctness and making off-limits legit advocacy about an adverse party in a suit whose illegal alien status is relevant? I am just asking the question, the reader can make own conclsuion. Oh wait-- did I use the wrong adjective-- let me rephrase that, um undocumented alien?

  4. of course the bigger questions of whether or not the people want to pay for ANY bussing is off limits, due to the Supreme Court protecting the people from DEMOCRACY. Several decades hence from desegregation and bussing plans and we STILL need to be taking all this taxpayer money to combat mostly-imagined "discrimination" in the most obviously failed social program of the postwar period.

  5. You can put your photos anywhere you like... When someone steals it they know it doesn't belong to them. And, a man getting a divorce is automatically not a nice guy...? That's ridiculous. Since when is need of money a conflict of interest? That would mean that no one should have a job unless they are already financially solvent without a job... A photographer is also under no obligation to use a watermark (again, people know when a photo doesn't belong to them) or provide contact information. Hey, he didn't make it easy for me to pay him so I'll just take it! Well heck, might as well walk out of the grocery store with a cart full of food because the lines are too long and you don't find that convenient. "Only in Indiana." Oh, now you're passing judgement on an entire state... What state do you live in? I need to characterize everyone in your state as ignorant and opinionated. And the final bit of ignorance; assuming a photo anyone would want is lucky and then how much does your camera have to cost to make it a good photo, in your obviously relevant opinion?
