MCBA’s Designated Appointee to the Marion County Judicial Selection Committee

June 29, 2017

As president of the Marion County Bar Association (“MCBA”), I am in receipt of Chief Justice Rush’s correspondence dated June 15, 2017 directing the MCBA to announce the appointment of its designee to the Marion County Judicial Selection Committee not later than June 30, 2017. Accordingly, it is my privilege to announce the appointment of KATHERINE (KATIE) F. JACKSON-LINDSAY of Jackson Legal Services, P.C.

As an introduction of her professional background, Katie – a native of Indianapolis – has been a solo practitioner since July 2013, managing criminal defense cases throughout Indiana. In January 2017, Katie also began serving as a Developmental Panel Attorney for Indiana Federal Community Defenders. From 2008 to 2013, Katie worked as a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney with the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office. While serving as a Deputy Prosecutor, she handled cases in the areas of Domestic Violence, Child Abuse and Fatalities, and Sex Crimes. During her tenure as a criminal attorney, Katie has handled over fifty (50) major felony jury trials and over one hundred (100) bench trials, thus she is fully vetted in the criminal law court system.

Katie has been educated in Indiana schools. She is a graduate of Indiana University Maurer School of Law (J.D. ’08) and was admitted to the Indiana bar in October 2008. In her undergraduate pursuits, Katie received Magna Cum Laude honors in Political Science and African and African American Studies from Indiana State University (B.S. ’05).

Katie participates as a volunteer with several community-based and civic organizations. She is a member of the Indianapolis Bar Association, Marion County Bar Association, Indiana State University Alumni Association, and the Indiana University Alumni Association. Katie is also an active member of the Indianapolis Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated where she currently serves as the corresponding secretary. Katie is married to Brandon Lindsay, a certified public accountant.

I am honored to present Katie Jackson-Lindsay to the Court for confirmation. On behalf of the MCBA, I have every confidence that she will represent our bar and the people of Marion County in pursuit of our desire for an inclusive and diverse judiciary.

Respectfully submitted,
Detra Lynn Mills
Marion County Bar Association
2017 President
