IBA: Myers Paralegal of the Year

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

In 1983 Michael Jackson’s Thriller was the album of the year. Flashdance was in the movie theaters, and Ronald Reagan was in the White House. It’s also the year that Mary E. Myers of Kroger Gardis & Regas began her paralegal career providing “added value” to the law practice of Indianapolis attorney and Kroger Gardis & Regas partner David Wright.

For the “remarkable results” for which she is credited and for the excellent example she has provided throughout her career, Myers has been selected as the 2010 IBA Paralegal of the Year. She will be recognized at the Paralegal Appreciation Luncheon on Thursday, May 20 at noon at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse downtown.
 

Myers-Mary Mary E. Myers

In nominating Myers for this recognition, Wright noted that “Mary has served over the years as an example to others, including new and developing lawyers, of ‘what it takes’, and ‘how it’s done’ in the sometimes intense, fast-paced and demanding environment of litigation.” Seven additional lawyers joined Wright in nominating Myers to which he noted, “The fact that Mary has left a trail of very impressed professional admirers speaks loudly.”

Jim Lauck, also a partner at Kroger Gardis & Regas, said in his nomination of Myers, “To be considered for this wonderful honor seems to be most fitting for someone as unassuming, effective and important as Mary Myers is to our law firm.” Another nominator added, “Mary not only assists those attorneys she is working with, but she is a key contributing and value adding member to the success of any given matter.”

Ultimately, one word seemed to sum up each of glowing remarks made about Myers – “indispensable.” The same characteristic possessed by all past recipients of the IBA Paralegal of the Year.

A member of the Indianapolis Bar Association and an active member of the Indiana Paralegal Association (IPA), Myers has served in various capacities for the IPA. Currently nearly 200 paralegals are members of the Indianapolis Bar Association where they gain relevant legal education and benefit from professional networking.

Consider recognizing a paralegal in your life by attending the appreciation luncheon together on May 20. Leaving your desk to tell someone “thank you” is never a bad idea.

  1. My mother got temporary guardianship of my children in 2012. my husband and I got divorced 2015 the judge ordered me to have full custody of all my children. Does this mean the temporary guardianship is over? I'm confused because my divorce papers say I have custody and he gets visits and i get to claim the kids every year on my taxes. So just wondered since I have in black and white that I have custody if I can go get my kids from my moms and not go to jail?

  2. Someone off their meds? C'mon John, it is called the politics of Empire. Get with the program, will ya? How can we build one world under secularist ideals without breaking a few eggs? Of course, once it is fully built, is the American public who will feel the deadly grip of the velvet glove. One cannot lay down with dogs without getting fleas. The cup of wrath is nearly full, John Smith, nearly full. Oops, there I go, almost sounding as alarmist as Smith. Guess he and I both need to listen to this again: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRnQ65J02XA

  3. Charles Rice was one of the greatest of the so-called great generation in America. I was privileged to count him among my mentors. He stood firm for Christ and Christ's Church in the Spirit of Thomas More, always quick to be a good servant of the King, but always God's first. I had Rice come speak to 700 in Fort Wayne as Obama took office. Rice was concerned that this rise of aggressive secularism and militant Islam were dual threats to Christendom,er, please forgive, I meant to say "Western Civilization". RIP Charlie. You are safe at home.

  4. It's a big fat black mark against the US that they radicalized a lot of these Afghan jihadis in the 80s to fight the soviets and then when they predictably got around to biting the hand that fed them, the US had to invade their homelands, install a bunch of corrupt drug kingpins and kleptocrats, take these guys and torture the hell out of them. Why for example did the US have to sodomize them? Dubya said "they hate us for our freedoms!" Here, try some of that freedom whether you like it or not!!! Now they got even more reasons to hate us-- lets just keep bombing the crap out of their populations, installing more puppet regimes, arming one faction against another, etc etc etc.... the US is becoming a monster. No wonder they hate us. Here's my modest recommendation. How about we follow "Just War" theory in the future. St Augustine had it right. How about we treat these obvious prisoners of war according to the Geneva convention instead of torturing them in sadistic and perverted ways.

  5. As usual, John is "spot-on." The subtle but poignant points he makes are numerous and warrant reflection by mediators and users. Oh but were it so simple.
