Firm Happenings

The firm hit a significant milestone on December 7, 2018 – the 20th anniversary since its doors opened.  We are proud of the business we have built and the service we have provided in that time. We appreciate our wonderful clients, a number of whom have been with us that entire time. Here’s to the next 20!
On a similar note, some of our attorneys and staff have celebrated recent milestone anniversaries of their own for practicing law and/or working at our firm.  Attorney Rebecca Didat hit her five-year mark with the firm in August, 2017.   Paralegal Mallery Waters celebrated her fifth anniversary at the firm in April, 2018.  Our receptionist and legal assistant, Karla Edelen, celebrated ten years with the firm in May, 2018.  As of May, 2018, Carli Clowers celebrated her fifth anniversary with the firm, and her fifth anniversary practicing law in October, 2018.  Office administrator Lisa Scott hit her twentieth anniversary with the firm in December, 2018.  In June, 2019, Rodney Scott and Jamie Fischer will each celebrate their thirtieth (yes, we said thirtieth), year of practicing law.  Tricia Hofmann, who hit the twenty-year anniversary of her bar admission in January of 2018, suddenly feels much younger!
The firm experienced a year of remarkable growth as we added three new attorneys to our team in 2018 to help us meet our clients’ needs.  In February, Associate Attorney Natalie Short joined the firm.  Natalie is a graduate of the Indiana University Law School.  Her primary areas of practice include insurance defense and personal injury.  Associate Attorney Tom Rump joined the firm in April.  Tom is a graduate of the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law.  His areas of practice include personal injury, premises liability, products liability, trucking, construction, and toxic torts.  Associate Attorney Jamie Fischer, joined the firm on October 1, 2018.  Jamie is also a graduate of the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law.  His primary areas of practice include auto and trucking, premises liability, construction, professional liability and fire matters.  Tom and Jamie are licensed in Kentucky, as well, where we are continuing to expand our litigation practice.  All three attorneys are part of our litigation department and bring a variety of strengths to our practice.  We are thrilled and fortunate to have them join us.
Our firm family grew this year in other ways as well.  In March, 2018, Carli Clowers and her husband, Jackie Clowers, welcomed the newest member of their family, daughter, Estelle Ruby Clowers.  Estelle is a very happy, smiley, sweet baby girl and with the help of her two-year-old sister, Adaline, keeps Carli and Jackie on their toes.
In October, 2018, paralegal Mallery Waters celebrated her marriage to Chris Hayre in a ceremony in the woods near Blue River.  They enjoyed a honeymoon trip to Asheville, North Carolina, and recently sold Mallery’s house and are in the process of setting up a home together.
Rodney Scott and Lisa Scott proudly added to their family this year.  Their son, John Dalton Fitzgerald, married Helen Bline on July 18.  Dalton continues to work for the Town of Clarksville and Helen works for BriovaRx as a pharmacy technician.  Dalton and Helen are expecting a sibling for their son, Michael, this coming May. 
John Hofmann and Tricia Hofmann's daughter, Casey Hofmann, successfully passed a five-hour examination to earn her black belt in Shaolin Kempo karate at St. Matthews Martial Arts in Louisville, Kentucky.  She has been studying karate for four years.  Casey is a ninth-grader in the International Baccalaureate magnet program at Atherton High School.
Emma Scott, daughter of Rodney Scott and Lisa Scott, wed Andrew Rutherford at a ceremony in Danville, Kentucky on November 10.  Emma is in her joint Pediatrics and Internal Medicine residency program at University of Kentucky.  Andrew is a Physician’s Assistant at the VA Medical Center in Lexington, Kentucky.
Madison Hofmann, daughter of John Hofmann and Tricia Hofmann, is a competitive figure skater and had a successful 2018 season, capped by advancing to the final round at the Eastern Great Lakes regional non-qualifying event in Ann Arbor, Michigan in October. She ultimately placed 14th out of approximately 50 competitors at her level.  Maddy is a seventh grader in the International Baccalaureate magnet program at Highland Middle School in Louisville, Kentucky.
Rodney Scott and Lisa Scott's daughter, Katie Scott, completed her Masters in Economics at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio this summer and is now working full-time for a policy group in Lexington, Kentucky.
