Young Lawyers News

Posted on: Jun 18, 2019

By Max Simpkins, IDOI

Currently, I am attorney for the Indiana Department of Insurance (IDOI), where I have worked since moving to Indianapolis in 2016. At the IDOI I primarily focus on legislative matters and providing internal legal support for the different divisions within the agency. 

Since moving to Indianapolis I have been involved in the community as a mentor for Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Central Indiana and serving out several committee positions with the YLD. 

After graduating with a BA in History from Millikin University in 2010 and a JD from the University of Dayton School of Law in 2013, I moved to Chicago where I worked as a contract attorney with a small loop law firm and then as a freight broker with a logistics company. 

Outside work, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Sarah, and traveling.
