Indiana Trial Lawyers Association hosted the 28th annual Lifetime Achievements this past week at the Indiana Convention Center. Jam packed with CLE sessions from over 40 ITLA members covering an array of topics from brain injury in the NFL to dram shop law and everything in between.
On Thursday, May 5th, a luncheon was held to honor legend John D. Ulmer. Chief Justice Brent E. Dickson began by praising the work John has done over the past several years. John has done phenomenal work for trial attorneys and Hoosiers alike. Many know him as the voice of reason and common sense. Sherrill Colvin also spoke on behalf of John and praised the hard work and dedication he has put into the his practice and community. Colvin made note of Mr. Ulmer being the attorney for the Ford-Pinto trial. Though he did not win the case, his work was powerful enough to halt the further production of these unsafe vehicles. Mr. Ulmer also served as the Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for Elkhart County and on the Indiana Commission for Continuing Legal Education.
Also honored at the luncheon was Alexander Limontes who accepted the Max Goodwin Young Lawyer of the Year Award. Alex works closely with the community and has helped countless of organizations within the Indianapolis area. More recently with the help of Gleaners, Alex has helped feed over 4,000 Hoosiers and also serves on the Board of Directors at the Emberwood Center and on the Indianapolis Bar Association Solo/Small Firm Committee. There is no question why Alex was named Young Lawyer of the Year for the 28th annual Lifetime Achievements luncheon
