Jon Laramore served as chief counsel for two governors and spent 10 years at what was then Faegre Baker Daniels.

But he left in 2015 to become executive director at Indiana Legal Services, the state’s largest, independent low-income law clinic, where he’s expanded the number of people served as well as the organization’s staff.

He talks with host Mason King about the legal needs of people in poverty, those who have been released from prison and clients facing health challenges.

And King questions Laramore about his experiences arguing—and winning—two cases at the U.S. Supreme Court.
