Legal aid agency now has room to grow

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indianapolis Legal Aid Society has completed its move into larger office space which will help the organization service its growing roster of clients.

The non-profit legal assistance agency has stayed in the English Foundation Building, 615 N. Alabama St., but relocated to the north wing. The office, refurbished specifically to meet the needs of ILAS, has a larger waiting room, a conference room and space for up to three more attorneys in the future.

Grants from The United Way of Central Indiana Capital Fund and the Central Indiana Community Foundation made the new offices possible.

“There is more demand than ever for legal representation for low-income Indianapolis residents struggling to meet their basic needs,” said ILAS general counsel John Floreancig. “We hope to maintain our current level of services with donations from the community and eventually help even more Hoosiers who lack the resources to pay for legal assistance.”

Along with the comfortable new space, ILAS also acquired a roommate. The Indiana Bar Foundation has relocated from its former offices on Ohio Street and is now leasing a portion of the new ILAS offices.

The two legal organizations will be co-hosting a reception and open house from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Oct. 24 at the offices in Suite 122. A short program will be held beginning at 6 p.m.

  1. For many years this young man was "family" being my cousin's son. Then he decided to ignore my existence and that of my daughter who was very hurt by his actions after growing up admiring, Jason. Glad he is doing well, as for his opinion, if you care so much you wouldn't ignore the feelings of those who cared so much about you for years, Jason.

  2. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  3. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  4. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  5. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.
