Recently, Carol Adinamis, of Westfield, was named the president of the Indiana State Bar Association.
“I am the primary representative of the organization which is the largest legal organization in the State of Indiana,” Adinamis said. “We have more than 12,000 members including attorneys, judges, paralegals and affiliate members with law related jobs. We serve and advocate on behalf of our members, their clients and Indiana’s citizens as the independent voice of the state’s legal profession.”
She said the position is voluntary, and she continues to work at her private practice at Adinamis & Saunders, PC.
At her firm, she represents estate planning, business formation and succession, mergers, acquisition, sales and they conduct mediations. Mediations involve the firm helping people resolving disputes before going to court, which can save money for the participants. Adinamis’ firm is a family firm, constructed of Adinamis, her husband Jeff Saunders, her sister Susan Adinamis and staff.
“Prior to serving as president of the Indiana State Bar Association, I was vice president for a year and then president-elect. This helped me prepare for my job as president,” Adinamis said.
Adinamis said her goal is to help ISBA become more helpful to attorneys around the state.
“It’s my job to help guide the organization for the 12 months that I am president, along with the Board of Governors. I preside over the Board of Governors meetings, and I attend different conferences and speak at various functions on behalf of the ISBA,” she said.
Since she lives in Westfield, Adinamis said her primary goal is to make sure her family feels safe and supported.
“I’m most excited just to be the representative of such a prestigious organization. The first president of the Indiana State Bar Association was Benjamin Harrison, the 23rd President of the United States. I feel honored to have been chosen for this role,” she said.
