Members of JHDJ Law spearheaded a joint effort with the Indiana State Bar Association’s Women in the Law Committee inaugural entitled “Lady Justice” on Saturday, March 26. The event was an educational program for the Girl Scouts of Central Indiana and took place at Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis with the help of 15 volunteer attorneys and judges.

Seventy-five Girl Scouts in third, fourth, and fifth grades participated in the program, with 23 troop leaders and parents. The

Scouts completed projects, listened to a panel discussion, shared lunch and watched a mock trial. Their participation will culminate in the Scouts earning a “Lady Justice” badge.

On October 12, 2010 from 5-7 pm, Adoption & Reproductive Law Attorney Michele Jackson is hosting a Fundraising Event to support the reelection campaign of Indiana State Senator Tim Lanane of District 25. The event is also designed to focus attention on legal and health issues affecting Hoosier women, including domestic violence, sexual assault, adoption, surrogacy and family law matters.  Senator Lanane has worked to support bills that have positively affected women and families in Indiana.  Last year, he received the “Patient Advocate of the Year” award from the Indiana State Medical Association for his work on domestic violence and sexual assault issues.  In 2005, Senator Lanane was also recognized as “Legislator of the Year” by the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence  (“ICADV”).  At JHDJ Law, our family law practice fully understands the impact domestic violence has on Indiana families and we support education and awareness initiatives.  Senator Lanane will talk with guests at the fundraiser about his campaign and the key issues he believes affect all Hoosiers including jobs, education, and public safety.

In addition to his work on domestic violence issues, Senator Lanane is the Assistant Minority Leader of the Indiana State Senate and serves on the following legislative committees:
