NTRODUCTION
My name is Sam Hasler. I graduated from Ball State in May of 1982 with a Political Sciencemajor. I went onto law school at Valparaiso University. I obtained my Juris Doctor degree in May of 1987. During law school I was on the Valparaiso Law Review for 1986-87 and I worked as a researchassistant for Professor Robert Blomquist in the area of causation in torts.I began practicing law in Anderson, Indiana in October of 1987. I started as a sole practitioner.That general practice involved criminal defense, debt collection, family law, appeals, corporate law,consumer protection issues (including the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act), bankruptcy and civillitigation. From April 1, 1993 to December 31, 1997, I was a partner in Hasler & Maynard, P.C.. Atthat time I returned to a solo practice. Then on July 1, 2000, I was hired by Dorn & Associates, P.C, andmoved to Indianapolis. Dorn provided pre-paid legal service to members of various union Carpenter andMillwright Locals. I left Dorn in September of 2002 dissatisfied with the limited practice areas of apre-paid legal services program. I returned to private practice in Anderson shortly after that.Indiana’s ethical rules prevent me from saying I am a specialist. I can say that I concentrate mypractice to certain areas of the law. I tend to concentrate my practice in the areas of family law, businesslaw, and consumer law.Some people may tell you that an attorney’s practice is limited to one county. This is not so. TheIndiana Supreme Court licenses attorneys and that license allows me to go into any court in the state.I do limit my the counties where I practice based on economics. It is a bit too expensive to try anordinary divorce case in Evansville from Anderson. The counties where I find it feasible to practicefamily law are: Madison, Delaware, Blackford, Henry, Hancock, Marion, Hamilton, Tipton, Grant,Howard, and Boone. I will go further but my fees will be high.A few words about my philosophy with divorce cases, which I premise on my ethical obligationto protect your best interests. Since this is a potentially traumatic experience for you, I will not makemountains out of molehills but neither will I advise you to cut off your nose to spite your face. We willget you want you need in the most efficient manner possible.
