Donald Lundberg has been called the leading authority on the law governing lawyers. A veteran member of a profession that is, by its nature, adversarial, Don epitomizes a level of professionalism and civility that members of the plaintiffs and defense bars agree is to be emulated. While executive secretary of the Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission, he earned a reputation statewide for his intellectual, yet common sense-driven, approach to handling disciplinary matters, and he now uses those skills to represent judges, attorneys and other professionals in matters of professional responsibility.
The best advice I ever received was:
I don’t put too much stock in advice. I care more about what people do than what they say. Some of the best modeling I ever received was from Fred Blosser, my math teacher for all four years of high school. He taught me that competition can be civil, productive and fun.
My best stress reliever is
commuting by bike. It’s a great way to make the mental transition between work and home life. I missed about five days over the winter.
I wish I had known when I graduated law school that
lawyer work has no equivalent of a semester break. To lawyers, a fresh start where everything comes to rest at once is a romantic fantasy. It is one of the great challenges in making the adjustment from the academy to professional life.
In 2012, I’d like to,
through the Indiana State Bar Association Wellness Committee, encourage lawyers to improve their personal well-being by exercising more, eating better and improving their inter-personal relationships.
If I weren’t a lawyer, I’d be
an urban planner. I love nature, but I also love cities.
The three words that best describe me are
eclectic, friendly and tolerant.
In the movie about my life, this actor would play me:
That’s easy. Gary Cole, who played Lumburgh in “Office Space.” They apparently spelled his name wrong in the credits.
In my community, I’m passionate about
the livability of my neighborhood and city.
