Founded in 1970, Wooden & McLaughlin LLP offers its clients a high level of experience, knowledge, accessibility and responsiveness. Before 1970, Bill Wooden and Robert McLaughlin were partners at another Indiana law firm. Because they were concerned that client responsiveness and attention would suffer if their firm became too large, they decided to form a new firm. Wooden & McLaughlin was formed with the idea that a law firm should strive to exceed commonly accepted standards of professionalism and client service while providing unsurpassed legal representation. The firm continues to build upon that tradition today.
The attorneys and staff at Van Wey Law are dedicated to treating each client with dignity and respect and affording each person the individualized attention they deserve. The team members are caring and compassionate professionals who have first-hand experience of pain and loss in our own lives. They are able to relate to their clients thus making them become part of the firm family. The entire team is laser focused on achieving results for their clients that serve a purpose of “righting wrongs” by restoring dignity and assuring financial peace of mind.
