Second Annual Moot Court Competition

The second annual National Professional Responsibility Moot Court Competition, open to all ABA-accredited law schools throughout the United States, will be held at the Robert H. McKinney School of Law on March 15 and 16, 2013.

The competition is supported by the Timothy J. Kennedy Memorial Moot Court Fund, endowed by Montross Miller to honor the contributions to the practice of law made by deceased partner, Timothy J. Kennedy, who for over 21 years chaired one of the grievance committees of the Indianapolis Bar Association and quietly worked to preserve the integrity of the legal profession.

Legal and judicial ethics, professional regulation, professionalism, and client protection pertain to every practitioner, no matter what legal field. The National Professional Responsibility Moot Court Competition will offer students an outstanding opportunity to engage in advocacy on cutting-edge professional responsibility concerns. The competition will test skills in appellate brief writing and oral advocacy on two specific issues drawn from real opinions, providing experience in interpreting professional responsibility standards and scholarly resources first-hand.

Mike Miller, a partner of the firm, has become a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in America.

Founded in 1950, the College is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States and Canada. Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only and only after careful investigation, to those experienced trial lawyers who have mastered the art of advocacy and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility and collegiality. Lawyers must have a minimum of fifteen years trial experience before they can be considered for Fellowship.

Membership in the College cannot exceed one percent of the total lawyer population of any state or province. There are approximately 5,800 members in the United States and Canada, including active Fellows, Emeritus

Fellows, Judicial Fellows (those who ascended to the bench after their induction) and Honorary Fellows. The College strives to improve and elevate the standards of trial practice, the administration of justice and the ethics of the trial profession. Qualified lawyers are called to Fellowship in the College from all branches of trial practice. They are carefully selected from among those who customarily represent plaintiffs in civil cases and those who customarily represent defendants, those who prosecute accused of crime and those who defend them. The College is thus able to speak with a balanced voice on important issues affecting the legal profession and the administration of justice.

Client Reviews
My 15-year-old son suffered a life-altering closed head injury that left him disabled for life when he was injured in a truck accident. I went to Mike Miller for help. Mike and the law firm were the greatest people I have ever been around. Everything they did was excellent, above and beyond the call of duty. They were able to recover enough to let me leave my job and devote full time care for my son. To this day, they are more than happy to talk with me and take care of anything that comes up. J.M.
Words cannot express how tremendously grateful my husband and I are to Nate and his team during the most difficult times in our lives. He walked us through every step with the up most respect, never hesitating to answer any and all questions, or simply giving us a word of encouragement. It was a relief to know that he was always on our side, fighting for our case and believing that it was worth fighting for. C.L.
A patient with a stroke was not transferred to a hospital capable of treating her. The client said, "We worked with Brad Kallmyer who was phenomenal. He listened well and was very thorough and professional. I give all the credit to Brad. The staff was very kind, very understanding. They made my mom feel important. Brad's integrity and the firm came through for us. They were great." C.M.
Scott did a truly amazing job for us. It was not just about the legal work; he was there for us every step of the way. From rehab, through settlement and even making sure appropriate financial arrangements were in place for the future. He went to bat for us with health care providers and workman's comp people. He fights for what is right. He really cared about what happened to my husband. Now, he will be taken care of for the rest of his life. T.R.
