About the Firm
Ann DeLaney and Kathleen DeLaney began their litigation practice in Indianapolis in January of 2002, forming DeLaney & DeLaney LLC. It is one of the first mother-daughter law firms in the city. Since the firm opened in January 2002, DeLaney & DeLaney LLC has been certified by the City of Indianapolis, and the State of Indiana as a Women's Business Enterprise, growing to a group of five attorneys. DeLaney & DeLaney is also an AV rated law firm by LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell.
On April 30, 2015, Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth (IL-08) delivered remarks on the floor of the House of Representatives during a debate on House Joint Resolution 43. The resolution seeks to overturn a Washington, D.C. law which makes it illegal to fire an employee based on personal decisions regarding his or her own reproductive health. Duckworth cited the case of Emily Herx in her arguments against passing H.J. Res. 43, as a prime example of the type of workplace discrimination with the D.C. law prevents. In her floor speech Duckworth said, "Employees like Emily Herx should be judged at work based on their job performance, not on private decisions they make with their families and doctors." The video of Rep. Duckworth's remarks is available here.
