A veteran in government circles, founder and legal counsel, Leslie Barnes, has spent over 20 years serving as a trusted legal and strategic advisor to individuals, elected officials and nonprofits throughout Indiana. Barnes saw an opportunity to empower individuals and strengthen communities by providing an affordable and innovative alternative to connect clients to government services and opportunities and to access legal assistance.
Are we a Law Firm
No. Indy Allies provides government services, self-help resources and, if needed, secure, online access to Barnes Legal Group, an Indiana law firm. Indiana law specifically restricts the naming of law firms to partner names, deceased partner names, languages spoken, areas of practice and geographic regions. We believe those limitations are pretty uninspiring. So we have chosen to link the law firm portion of the enterprise to Indy Allies, the part of the enterprise with a symbolic, inspiring, and memorable name.
The word “ally” refers to the alliance or partnership created between client and attorney. It also describes the privilege we have to advocate on behalf of full civil rights for all individuals. The pink inverted triangle was reclaimed in the 1970’s after being used to denote gay prisoners in Nazi concentration camps. It has become known as a symbol of pride, solidarity and a promise to never forget the tragedies that occurred during the Holocaust. Inspired by many friends and family who have helped pave the way for racial and gender equity, the symbol serves as an indication that our doors to open to everyone.
