Since we can't seem to get a handle on this virus, I'm initiating a vax-only policy for in-person meetings, effective immediately.

Everyone has a Constitutional right to the privacy of their health information. You may waive that right and meet in person. You may decline to waive that right and meet via Zoom.

The choice is yours.

Why lawyers may seem reluctant to answer your "quick question"

https://dudaslaw.com/2020/11/12/quick-question/
I am always honored to hear from you seeking advice on legal and policy matters. It means you have confidence in me and my knowledge, and that means a lot. But please remember: with few exceptions, there are no "quick questions." In order for me to answer your "quick question," I am ethically required to do a number of things. Most importantly, I have to make sure I don't have a conflict of interest....

Every general election in Indiana, you'll see a section where you're asked the following question: "Should Justice/Judge be retained in office?" You can either vote "yes" or "no." If the Justice or Judge receives a majority of yes votes, they get to keep their job for another ten years. How does this work, and how is anyone who isn't a lawyer supposed to know the answer?

Why Bulldog Tactics Won’t Work

For whatever reason, prospective family law clients often start our introductions with, “I hear you’re a bulldog.” They say it with all the confidence in the world that the compliment will flatter me to no end, thus kicking off our relationship as co-conspirators in our shared goal of conquest and victory at all costs. But what instantly goes through my mind is the recognition that I have before me someone who believes we’re still operating in a family court system where making the other parent look as bad as possible is at all effective.

Noe Dudas: ADD diagnosis for a high-functioning lawyer adds up - The Indiana Lawyer

This was my last column in the Indiana Lawyer, and I don't think I shared it. But I received an email today. The fact that it changed even ONE PERSON'S life made me feel like maybe more people could benefit. Here's what the email said:

***********************************************************************I wanted to reach out and thank you, and “Jane,” for your article in the October 16 Indiana Lawyer about ADHD.

If I didn’t know for a fact that I didn’t give an interview with you, I would be sure that “Jane” was me. We had the same childhood, down to the piano lessons, and the same academic experiences. After reading the article, I made an appointment with my doctor, got tested by a mental health professional, and sure enough I was diagnosed with ADHD. My doctor prescribed medication and I can’t even describe how much better my life has become in every aspect in the short time since my diagnosis. I don’t think that I ever would have even considered the possibility that ADHD could be what was interfering with my work, home, social life, if it wasn’t for your article. I assumed I was just messy, lazy, disorganized, and didn’t have the will power to focus on things at work for extended periods of time. Thanks to “Jane,” and you, I know that isn’t the case and I no longer struggle with those issues to the same extent as before my diagnosis.

I hope you can share this with “Jane” so that she knows that by speaking with you, she honestly changed my life. I know that opening up about stigmatized things like mental health is not easy or fun, and I sincerely appreciate her courage.
***********************************************************************

Kinda got me in the feels a little. :-)
