Legal Practice

Utilities: I represent clients before the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission, state and federal trial courts, and appellate tribunals. My clients have included utilities, municipalities, developers, a trade association and a statewide telecommunications authority.

Trusts & Estates: I counsel individuals, couples and families regarding the transfer of assets to intended beneficiaries through wills, trusts or other means. Also, I assist with estate administration and provide advance healthcare directives.

Appellate:  I review trial and administrative proceedings and outcomes, and craft effective arguments for review by appellate tribunals.

Looking Ahead

Regulations affecting business in all industry sectors may change, but the administrative processes and reviews have remained intact for years. While regulated businesses seek streamlining and predictability, the public interest in rational and transparent processes can be expected to drive regulators’ decisions.
