Clerk White Named A ‘Distinguished Barrister’


INDIANAPOLIS – Marion County Clerk Beth White was recently named a ‘Distinguished Barrister’ by The Indiana Lawyer.
 
“I am honored to receive this award and to be recognized by my peers for the work we do every day to improve access to our legal system,” Clerk White said. “I look forward to continuing this work and to making the electoral process work for the people of Marion County.”
 
Clerk White is an honors graduate of the Georgetown Law Center and received her undergraduate degree from Indiana University-Bloomington. She practiced with the law firm of Barnes & Thornburg and then served as a deputy prosecutor under former Marion County Prosecutor Jeff Modisett. Clerk White later became general counsel for the Indiana Department of Workforce Development and the Marion County Office of Family and Children. 
 
Before holding elected office, Beth worked for former Indianapolis Mayor Bart Peterson for seven years, holding positions in the Office of Corporation Counsel and the Department of Metropolitan Development. First elected as Marion County Clerk in 2006, Beth is now serving her second term in office. She has made voter education and outreach a hallmark of her administration in an effort to improve voter participation in our community.
 
Nominated by their peers and colleagues, the newspaper selected 15 attorneys statewide to be part of the 2012 class of ‘Distinguished Barristers.’ In addition to the veteran attorneys, the newspaper also named 15 ‘Up and Coming Lawyers.’ Members of the 2012 class were honored at a ceremony at the Columbia Club last week and featured in The Indiana Lawyer’s Leadership in Law supplement.
