                                          in counseling and representing individuals in a wide array of family law matters, with particular
                                          emphasis on the economic aspects of matrimonial law. This concentration includes, among

                                          marital assets (including corporations, partnerships, professional practices and

                                          tracing of assets, and drafting premarital agreements. Drew also represents clients in
                                          contested child custody and child support proceedings. Baker & Daniels' family law group
                                          draws upon the firm's breadth of experience and resources in litigation, corporate, financial
                                          services, entrepreneurial services, taxation, estate planning, real estate and bankruptcy in
                                          providing comprehensive personal services.

                                          Drew is past chair of both the Indiana State Bar Association Family & Juvenile Law Section
                                          and the Indianapolis Bar Association Family Law Section. Drew also serves as a member of
                                          the State of Indiana Family Law Independent Certification Organization.

                                          Drew is a frequent speaker at national and state family law seminars, including the American
                                          Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers' annual meeting in Chicago and the American Bar
                                          Association annual meeting. Each year since 1999, Drew presents the annual "Family Law
