Krieg DeVault is pleased to announce that Partner and Chair of the firm’s Litigation and Dispute Resolution Practice, Libby Yin Goodknight, has been selected into the 2022 Class of Distinguished Fellows of the Indianapolis Bar Foundation.  Ms. Goodknight was selected to the new class for meeting the standards of demonstrating exceptional community leadership and professionalism among Indianapolis area lawyers. She was officially recognized for this honor at a breakfast event on April 21 at Meridian Hills Country Club in Indianapolis.

The Indianapolis Bar Foundation, the charitable arm of the Indianapolis Bar Association, is a community-focused leader of the local legal profession. The Foundation was created to provide a charitable opportunity for members and friends of the Indianapolis legal community to donate time and money to provide support to central Indiana families of limited means experiencing legal problems and to help support law students and young lawyers and they embark on their careers. 

Exceptional community leadership and professionalism among Indianapolis’ lawyers is recognized through the Foundation's Distinguished Fellows program, which was formed in 1982.  Each year, a limited number of attorneys are selected for recognition and demonstrate their commitment to the community with a gift to the endowment.  The Foundation's ongoing grants and programs are maintained solely through the generosity and energy of its directors, fellows and donors.
