Trimble: Mentoring: Do You Have it in You?

IBA-trimble-john-2015

By John C. Trimble, Lewis Wagner LLP

I will never forget the first mentoring moment that I received from my legal mentor, Robert Wagner. He called me into his office and he said, “John, I need you to go call Howard Young to arrange for a site inspection of a backyard swimming pool.” The thought of calling Howard Young intimidated me a great deal (he was many years my senior and an acclaimed plaintiff lawyer). So, I procrastinated. …A few days later, Mr. Wagner asked me if I had called Howard Young. I explained that I had not, and I confessed that I was nervous to call him. With a hint of humor in his voice, Mr. Wagner assured me that Howard was approachable, and that if I intended to practice law, I would need to have the courage to call another lawyer no matter who they were. He told me to make the call that day. No excuses.

I called Howard Young, and said, “Mr. Young…” and he cut me off immediately, and said, “My father is ‘Mr. Young.’ My name is Howard. Call me Howard.” I called him Howard, and in no time at all, the site inspection was arranged.

Looking back on those moments I realize that two people had mentored me. Robert Wagner had forced me to do something that I had been mildly scared to do, and Howard Young had made it clear to me that I was a colleague in the bar whom he valued. Howard Young practiced law almost to his 90th birthday, and every time I saw him up to his death, I never forgot how he had put me at ease and how much I valued that I knew him as Howard.

We are living in a time when the legal profession is changing. Jobs are scarcer. Busy lawyers are finding less time for fellowship and volunteerism. Young lawyers are finding an increasing challenge in getting experience. Many lawyers and law students are unemployed or underemployed and are feeling emotional and financial desperation. Communication is by email or text and less by phone or face-to-face. Lawyers seemingly have less interest in participating in bar associations and other groups.

Against this backdrop there has never been a time in which mentoring has been more important. Many of you may feel that you don’t have the talent or the capacity to mentor others. That could not be further from the truth.

So, what is “mentoring,” you ask? According to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary, a mentor is, “Someone who teaches or gives help and advice to a less experienced and often younger person.” If you parse this definition you see “teach,” “help,” and “advice” among the key words. In my view, mentoring is as much or as little teaching, helping, or advising as time might allow you. It ranges from the intensive day-to-day effort to help shape and mold a professional colleague to nothing more than inviting someone to join the bar association or come to a law-related event. It includes any effort you can share to make things a little better (or a lot better) for someone else. It also includes words of encouragement or praise that may prompt another lawyer or law student to reach even higher than they had ever expected to reach.

Leadership educator Drew Dudley, in his popular TED Talk, “Everyday Leadership,” talks about what he describes as a “lollipop moment.” It is a moment when someone says something or does something that makes your life better. Every one of us has the capacity to provide a lollipop moment for someone else. You may do it without realizing it, or you can set your mind to the notion that you can be a catalyst to change or improve the lives of others. Mentoring can be formal and ongoing, or it can be unplanned and momentary. Either way it happens, we all need some mentoring some of the time, and we all have the capacity to mentor.

Please, give it a try. Mentoring is like a gift. You may find through mentoring that you actually receive more than you gave, but what you gave will be appreciated.

The X Factor for Success as an Attorney

By Jenai M. Brackett, Frost Brown Todd LLC

Do you have the “X Factor” for success? Do you even know what the “X Factor” is? According to this article, emotional intelligence is the X Factor and can be extremely valuable in law practice and to your leadership style. The article outlines key competencies to becoming emotionally intelligent: self-awareness, self-management, empathy and relationship skills. It is a great read and reminds us that “leaders are not always born,” but “they can re-zoom if they understand and embrace their emotional intelligence.”

Total Overhaul to IndyBar Low Asset Will Program Proves Beneficial to Clients and Volunteers Alike

Amanda Krenson, Manley Deas Kochalski LLC

After eight years of matching volunteer attorneys with qualifying applicants and recognizing a notable decline in the rate of conversion between application and completion of signed and witnessed documents, the IndyBar Pro Bono Standing Committee changed the Low Asset Wills program format this year to create a two-day clinic, reaching individuals in their respective communities. The outcome? Twenty-five individuals received free legal services (almost double the number from last year) which helped them “feel very much at peace now” and helped another complete a process he had been working on for “the last five years.”

iba-low-asset-wills-photo-15col

IndyBar attorney volunteer Peter Ten Eyck, Hackman Hullet LLP, assists a community member during the Low Asset Wills workshop at the John H. Boner Community Center on May 6.

With IndyBar’s Spring Ask a Lawyer program giving advice on probate and estate planning matters more than any other topic except family law, it was no surprise that the 28 volunteers at the IndyBar Low Asset Will workshops were busy. In addition to providing wills, health care powers of attorney and other advanced directives, some individuals were counseled on trusts and contested guardianship matters.

Clearly, the need continues to exist for attorneys to heed the call stated within our Oath: “I will never reject, from any consideration personal to myself, the cause of the defenseless, the oppressed or those who cannot afford adequate legal assistance.” With the changes in the Indiana Supreme Court reporting requirements around the corner, the IndyBar Low Asset Wills program offered volunteers an opportunity to provide direct service to a qualified indigent population, making their donated time eligible for pro bono reporting in 2016.

IndyBar member Corrina Smith, associate at Rebecca Geyer & Associates, found the three-hour volunteer experience to be very rewarding. Noted as quite pleasant and knowledgeable by her client, Corrina assisted her client effectuate final wishes that would never have occurred had the individual died without a will.

“I practice in the area of estate planning and elder law. One of my favorite parts of this practice is that clients often share their life stories along the way – what’s important to them, how they came to be where they are today, and what legacy they want to leave after they’re gone,” Smith notes.

“The client I met with wanted to leave what little she has to charity after she’s gone. It was such a pleasure helping her accomplish that goal. I was also surprised to learn that the client I met with had recently assisted her aunt with end-of-life issues. She wanted to designate specific people to make medical decisions for her, just like she did for her aunt. People often don’t realize that an estate plan includes more than just a Last Will and Testament.”

Volunteer paralegal Jennifer Albrecht of Waples & Hanger left the event “impressed by the caliber of all the volunteers and the gentleness of the volunteer attorneys.”

Gratitude goes to the James Wright Center, a Midtown Mental Health Center, and the John H. Boner Community Center for hosting of these programs.

Trimble: BENCH BAR 2015: Is it Too Good to Be True?

IBA-trimble-john-2015

By John C. Trimble, Lewis Wagner LLP

I was about 8 years old when I first learned the old adage, “If it sounds too good to be true, then it’s too good to be true.” I came home from school one day and my Mom told me that we were having dinner that night at Dairy Queen (we never had dinner at Dairy Queen). An hour later I was actually having dinner at Dairy Queen. However, I had also been to the local health clinic first for a very painful flu shot in my gullible rear end.

To all of you … my friends in the IndyBar, I am here today to break the rule:  Bench Bar 2015 is going to be off the charts GOOD, and while it may sound too good to be true, take my word for it.  It’s true.

My message this week is for everyone, but I am particularly interested to speak to those of you who have never attended. You simply have no idea about the fun you are missing and the opportunities Bench Bar presents.

We kick off on Thursday, June 18 with a golf outing for our golfing members at the Chariot Run Golf Club in southern Indiana. Due to a generous sponsorship by Wilson Kehoe & Winingham, the price for green fees, cart, lunch, beverages and bountiful favors and prizes is only $75 per golfer. Bragging rights are on the line, so golfers need to be there.

Thursday evening we will have a big cocktail reception followed by dine-arounds, dinner on your own, or a fabulous buffet at the Muhammad Ali Center. Hardy souls can then party on Fourth Street or come back to the President’s hospitality suite (or both.) The Thursday night activities have grown through the years, and it has become one truly great night of friends catching up with friends. You don’t want to miss it.

Our seminar gets underway on Friday morning with a nice breakfast. Then, acclaimed legal futurist, Prof. William Henderson of Indiana University Maurer School of Law, will speak to us about where the legal world is headed. Every commentator on the legal profession is in agreement that we are facing profound changes in our business, and the changes will eventually drop down to affect everyone. You need to know about these changes before they happen. As Wayne Gretzky said, “You don’t skate to the puck … You skate to where the puck will be.” Prof. Henderson will give you much needed guidance to survive and thrive when others will not.

Everyone will likely remember the Duke lacrosse scandal. What most people do not recall is that the lacrosse players were eventually declared innocent and the prosecutor lost his law license and was convicted of prosecutorial misconduct. One of the lead defense attorneys, Jim Cooney of North Carolina, will come tell us the fascinating story of how the defense team compiled a defense in the face of enormous public outrage. He will share tips on technology and social media that assisted the team in creating a timeline that exonerated the players.

At lunch on Friday, you will have the treat of hearing one of America’s most endearing legal speakers. Judge Alex Sanders, former Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals of South Carolina, will speak on the role of lawyers in America as we face and respond to shootings of unarmed black men in Ferguson, North Charleston and Baltimore. Judge Sanders founded the Charleston College of Law where all students are required to complete hours of public service and pro bono work in order to graduate. He is a master speaker and storyteller who you will long remember.

In the afternoon on Friday we are trying a format that has garnered great excitement. Instead of the usual panel discussions, each of the varying tracks will have 15-minute TED Talk style speeches by some of Indy’s most beloved and high-profile lawyers and judges. Come hear Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson speak on the topic “Don’t Go Breaking My Hart” or Erin Clancy’s talk on “Foul Mouth or Free Speech: A Foray Into the Fitness of the Four Letter Word.” The Civil, Family Law, and Criminal tracks will all have some of the most stimulating and entertaining oratory that you have ever encountered. Your only challenge will be how to choose from among the tantalizing topics and speakers.

Friday night will be another great reception and a dinner at the hotel with the entire assembly of attendees. After dinner many will head out to party while others will join the Indianapolis Bar Foundation for a night of Trivial Pursuit. Again, there will be major bragging rights on the line.

Saturday, after a great breakfast, we will have an outstanding ethics talk by attorney Mark Olson of Minnesota. Mark has been invited by lawyer groups nationwide to speak on ethics. His style is to throw out scenarios, poll the crowd for the right answer, and then straighten us all out when we get it wrong. We all need the ethics credits, and a talk by Mark Olson is a great way to get them.

Those of you who know me well might suggest that I am a bit of a huckster. You say, “Trimble, this can’t be as good as you are leading us to believe!” However, I stand by my statement at the beginning of this shaggy dog story:  It is all true. Bench Bar 2015 is going to be non-stop fun and excitement.  If you miss it, you may have the same regret your mother had when she passed on the chance to go to Woodstock.

It’s true. Life is too short for regrets, so come to Bench Bar 2015. #WILLYOUBETHERE?

Leading Litigators Come to Louisville for Bench Bar 2015

At the 2015 Bench Bar Conference, you’ll have the chance to hear from some of the nation’s leading legal experts. One such speaker is James “Jim” P. Cooney III, partner at Womble Carlyle in Charlotte, NC. Mr. Cooney will be leading one of the opening plenary sessions, The Duke Lacrosse Defense: How Technology Unraveled a Case.

In addition to the Duke Lacrosse case, Mr. Cooney has litigated other high-profile cases, such as Alan Gell’s death row appeal. He practices civil and criminal law, including trial and appellate work, and he is currently the Practice Group Leader of the Business Litigation Practice Group at his firm.

There’s a lot to be said about Mr. Cooney’s prolific career in law, but we’ll let him speak for himself. Check out our Q+A with him below and then get to know him even better when you attend the conference in June.

Q: How long have you practiced law?

I graduated from the University of Virginia School of Law in 1982 and clerked for a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit before joining a law firm. I was admitted to practice law in April 1984, so “legally speaking” I have practiced law for 31 years.

Q: What can people expect from your session at the conference?

They will learn the inside facts of the Duke Lacrosse case and some basic DNA technology and testing in the context of a claimed sexual assault.

Q: What are some of the highlights that set your presentation apart?

My experience has been that most lawyers, particularly civil trial lawyers, enjoy the way in which we “deconstructed” the State’s case to prove the innocence of our clients.

Q: What’s one of the most interesting things about the Duke Lacrosse defense?

The complete way the case turned around. It began with the State accusing my client of a crime that would have sent him to jail for life, and ended up with the District Attorney being disbarred and jailed for contempt and my client being exonerated.

Q: How is technology shaping the legal field today?

Putting aside metadata and e-discovery, the most significant role of technology is in the way that we have to communicate to jurors who have now been raised on it. Presentations must look more like the Internet and must appeal to them technologically in order to hold their interest.

Q: What are you most looking forward to about being in Louisville and speaking at Bench Bar?

Really good small batch bourbon and a run by the waterfront (likely not in that order).

 

Q: Most interesting case you’ve ever worked on and why?

Hard to isolate one. I have represented accused serial killers, freed innocent men from death row, had the Duke Lacrosse case and defended former Senator John Edwards, so I have had a genuine rollercoaster ride.

Q: What’s the best part about your job?

Giving a closing argument in a hotly contested high-profile case.

Q: What do you do when you’re not busy working or speaking at conferences?

I like to do (short) triathlons.

Q: What’s a fun fact about you that people may not know?

I went to Duke and my wife went to North Carolina. We have a mixed marriage and do not talk much during basketball season. It has worked for 36 years.
