Founded in Indianapolis in 1970, Wooden McLaughlin 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. But they were concerned that client responsiveness and attention would suffer if their firm became too large, so 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 on that tradition.
