Meet members of the Insurance Coverage Section with the Take Ten Q&A Series!
Meet: Georgianna Q. Tutwiler, Hume Smith Geddes Green & Simmons LLP
What is the focus of your practice?
Much of my practice involves insurance defense litigation. However, I also do estate planning and probate work.
How long have you been practicing?
I have been practicing law since 2014.
How long have you been in Indy?
I have lived in the Indianapolis area most of my life. I graduated from Carmel High School, but relocated to Greenwood, Indiana, several years ago.
What do you value most about the practice of law?
There are many things I enjoy about practicing law. However, I enjoy litigation most. I enjoy helping people through what is a difficult time in their lives—whether they are the plaintiff or defendant—and having the opportunity to navigate our legal system.
What do you enjoy doing when you're not at work?
I enjoy reading, outdoor activities such as hiking and running, and spending time with my family.
What are some of your goals for the section this year and what are you most excited about for the section?
I am excited to provide valuable CLE content to our legal community this year. Our Board has been working hard to find relevant, timely topics for attorneys that deal with insurance topics.
What's one piece of advice you've learned from your years of experience in the field?
Always be civil. Whether it’s in your writing or your everyday interactions with attorneys—no matter what who they may represent. You can advocate for your client while also maintaining a reputation as a reasonable, even-handed attorney.
Tell us about your favorite restaurant(s) in Indy.
In Indianapolis, my favorite restaurant is probably Morton’s Steakhouse. However, if you’re ever in Bargersville, Taxman Brewery has an amazing menu!
