There are a lot of terrific lawyers out there. I’ve been honored by my colleagues across the State to serve in a leadership role of the Indiana Trial Lawyers Association (ITLA) – since 1994 on the Board of Directors of ITLA and since 2009 on the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors.
In 2004, I was further honored by being elected to the Indiana Trial Lawyers Association College of Fellows, membership of which is limited to “attorneys through experience and training are outstanding members of the Trial Bar.”
And I’m a past president of the Madison County Bar Association.
It also brings some sense of job satisfaction that I’ve had judges, doctors, insurance adjusters, other lawyers, and former clients refer their friends and family members to me.
An independent study shows that a significant percentage of jurors think lawyers will say or do anything to win a case. I don’t buy into that stereotype. If you want a lawyer who will lie or cheat to win, then I’m not your guy. I pride myself on the credibility I have with judges, other lawyers, and yes, even insurance companies. Saying and doing the right thing is not just the honorable way, it brings about better results for my client. For me, it’s the only way to practice law.
I don’t know who said it first, but it’s true that people won’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. I’ve represented families of husbands, wives, and children who have been senselessly killed by the negligence of others. I’ve represented people who have suffered permanent, disabling injuries. And I’ve helped many others with serious injuries that disrupted their lives at least temporarily. I’ve seen the best in the human spirit in these remarkable individuals. To treat these cases as just another way to earn a living would be a disservice to my clients. That’s why when I accept a new client I’m more interested in making a difference in that client’s life than I am in making a buck for myself.
