The United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Indiana is accepting new volunteers who would like to work on the court’s Bankruptcy Pro Bono Panel.
Volunteer attorneys represent indigent parties on a pro bono basis in adversary proceedings and contested matters. An attorney admitted to the Southern District of Indiana is eligible to volunteer.
Applications by litigants to the panel are given out only at the Bankruptcy judges’ discretion and all applicants are financially screened. Volunteer attorneys are asked to take no more than three cases per year.
Those interested in more information on volunteering should contact Kathleen Field at email@example.com.

Cohen, Dustin DeNeal, Darrell Dolan, Jeremy Dunn, Jeff Graham, Elizabeth Lally, Nicolette Mendenhall, Erin Nave and Fatima Skimin.
