Young Lawyers News


Posted on: Mar 26, 2020

Hey y’all. My name is Travis Lovett. Pardon my southernism, I’m a proud Georgia boy, originally from outside of Atlanta. Before law school, I traveled across the United States and Canada competing as a Professional Native American Powwow dancer and became a World Champion in 2008. My Powwow career inspired me to go to law school at Arizona State University so that I could focus my studies on federal Indian law. After law school, I completed an LL.M program at the University of Alberta and worked as a tribal attorney for First Nation governments in Saskatchewan, Canada advising primarily on tribal governance and litigation matters.

After the birth of my daughter in 2017, my wife and I returned to her home state of Indiana to pursue our long-term careers. I currently serve at the Office of Attorney General where I work in the Advisory Division, advising on contractual matters and state regulatory boards during administrative proceedings. After work, I turn to my MBA studies as a part-time student at the Kelly School of Business at Indiana University where I plan to concentrate on finance and entrepreneurialism. 

When not busy at the AG’s Office or school, I spend my spare time working with my family on our 120-year-old farm house in Lebanon. We stay busy with our gardens, chickens, and Labrador, and are working towards starting a bio-dynamic farm named, “Harmony Acres Farm.”

While relatively new to the Indiana legal community, the Young Lawyers Division (YLD) of the Indianapolis Bar Association has certainly made making friends much easier, namely through the mentor-mentee connect program and various social events. The thing that I enjoy most about being a lawyer is commingling (either in adversary argument or coffee chit-chat) with other attorneys. Our profession is filled with extraordinary wisdom and I see YLD as a means to facilitate cordinalism and unity amongst the bar. With that, I am always happy and look forward to meeting other lawyers. Contact me anytime – travis.d.lovett@gmail.com.
