March 19, 2014
Dinsmore & Shohl is pleased to announce that nine Lexington attorneys have been invited to join the newly formed Central Kentucky American Inn of Court (CKAIC). Membership is offered at various levels depending on experience. Masters of the Inn have at least 16 years of law practice and are comprised of judges and attorneys. Barristers have been practicing for six to 15 years, and Associates are just beginning their legal career with up to five years of experience. The following Dinsmore attorneys are part of the first members for the CKAIC:

Mindy Barfield (Master)
Barbara Edelman (Master)
Lin West (Master)
John Spires (Barrister)
Kara Stewart (Barrister)
David Treacy (Barrister)
MacKenzie Mayes Walter (Barrister)
Haley Trogdlen McCauley (Associate)
Kelley Williams (Associate)

American Inns of Court are designed to improve the professionalism and ethics of the legal community. Monthly programs provide learning experiences for members and a chance to network with judges and other lawyers. Dinsmore attorneys have been very active in creating the CKAIC and were involved in the Organizing Committee for the Inn.

“This is a testament to the commitment of our Lexington attorneys to elevate their legal practice. Our diverse group includes Masters of the Inn who will mentor the next generation of attorneys and judges. I’m proud to work with these nine attorneys,” said Chauncey Curtz, Lexington Office Managing Partner.

There are 115 members of the Central Kentucky Inn of Court. Kentucky has two other Inns of Court: the Louis D. Brandeis Inn of Court in Louisville and the Salmon P. Chase Inn of Court in northern Kentucky.
