2018 was a busy year for our firm. We experienced a lot of growth as we brought on new attorneys and helped more clients. Growth has really been a trend here at the firm for the past few years. It’s a big goal to say you want to help more people, and to truly accomplish it is huge. I’m glad I can say we’ve achieved our aim. At the same time, we haven’t lost what makes our firm unique. We still have the small-town personality that I really love, and I know our clients appreciate it. I’m proud to be part of a business that is all about its community. Speaking of which, I want to share a piece of information from last January. Each year, our firm offers cab rides during the holidays. You’ll find advertisements for the cab service in bars and restaurants around Terre Haute during December and around New Year’s. Last January was the first time in recent memory that there wasn’t a single drunk-driving arrest in Terre Haute on New Year’s Eve! I’d like to think our program had something to do with it. In any case, it’s great to know that people are taking advantage of the program after having a few drinks and staying off the road. We hope to see a similarly empty list of New Year’s DUI arrests this year, but as of this writing, we don’t yet have that information. Last year was also one of growth for me. Among the year’s biggest accomplishments was moving out of my apartment and into my own house. I mentioned the transition in the October 2018 edition of the newsletter, and since then, it’s been fantastic. As a first-time homeowner, I’m still very excited. Professionally, I did a lot of developing and learning as an attorney. I put a lot of effort into staying educated and up-to-date on a number of legal topics. But book smarts don’t get you very far if you neglect to help those
around you, so I focused much of my attention on giving back to the community.
To do that, I serve on the boards of several local organizations. I feel that Terre Haute has done so
much for me over the years, so it’s crucial for me to pay it forward to other local citizens.
One organization I serve with is called Reach Services. I have cerebral palsy on my right side, so volunteering my time with a nonprofit, which aims to help people with various special needs, hits close to home. Reach Services offers resources, advocacy, outreach, and more. When I was growing up and going to school, I was told a lot about what I can’t do. I want to ensure that kids who are growing up with cerebral palsy, or any other condition, know that their opportunities are not limited. They don’t have to endure hearing what they can’t do; I want them to know about everything they can do. That’s an immeasurably important message for young people to hear. As I look ahead to the new year, my mind is on continuing to provide amazing service to our clients and help people when they need it most. When people come to us, they’re often in a tough spot and just looking for someone to rely on. I want to deliver the best help and resources that I possibly can. I look forward to learning more and being there for anyone who needs me, whether they’re a client, a family member, or a friend. From all of us at Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin, we hope you have a bright new year.
