Pilot or farmer, attorney or father, Chris Stevenson wears many hats. The lawyer, who has worked for Wilson Kehoe Winingham LLC for going on 12 years, specializes in injury work, specifically that which is aviation- or farm-related.

Stevenson did not grow up on a farm himself, but he did grow up in rural Rossville, a town where, “99 percent of my friends were farmers and agriculture was probably one of the primary employers for the area.” His wife, an animal science major who eventually got her veterinary tech degree, was eager to live where she could have her own animals, so the couple purchased 40 acres in Tippecanoe County.

“It turned out to be the best investment we ever made,” Stevenson said. “We have five boys, the oldest is 13, then 12, 9, 7 and 3. Our oldest three are involved in 4-H. They show dairy goats and sheep. We also have horses.”

Having such a large family and managing a farm gives the boys a constant source of activity. They have chores, take care of animals and are interested in local agricultural activities related to the farm. Having a farm and managing a large family keeps Stevenson’s feet planted firmly on the ground.

“When I have cases that draw out, sometimes for years, doing things on the farm gives me a sense of accomplishment and seeing a project through to completion,” he said.•
