The IndyBar Family Law Section is excited to recognize Mag. Deborah Shook as the 2019 recipient of the Family Law Section Award. The purpose of this award is to recognize those individuals and/or organizations who have made contributions to the legal profession and the community. Specifically, these recipients have demonstrated a commitment to furthering knowledge of issues affecting families as they relate to laws and policies within the bar and among colleagues and have shown a commitment to furthering the interests of families and the Indianapolis community at large.

Deborah J. Shook serves as a magistrate for the Marion Superior Court. She is currently assigned to Civil Court 3 and conducts proceedings supplemental for all the civil courts in Marion County. Shook was formerly the commissioner in Marion Circuit Courts Paternity Division. She is a member of the National Council of Juvenile Court Judges. She previously served on the board of the Indianapolis Bar Foundation.

We hope you'll join us in honoring Mag. Shook at the Family Law Summit and Holiday Party on Dec. 4. You can register here!
