00 Adding to the Family

Hi all. I hope you are enjoying the spring and had a wonderful holiday season. Although our announcements are short with this edition, they are happy ones. Last July, Lauren Herring married Ted Disabato in St. Louis. She was able to share this wonderful celebration with a bunch of her ND friends: Sarah (Kaufman) Jagger, Jennifer (Mika) Johnson, Alicia Coronas, Melissa Tacey, Erin (McGee) Hilton, Katy Murphy, Rob Marek ’98, Maureen Neville ’99, and Chris Beza ’99. Congratulations to the happy couple. Carolina (Ng) Chung and her husband Raymond Chung ’99, ’00 CHEG added to their family with their son Bennett last May. Bennett and his sister, Bellina, live with their parents in Palisades Park NJ. Also in baby news, Justyna and Steve Allred welcomed their third child in October. Son Truman Loren joins his brother Henry Stephen and sister Stasha Grace. The Allred family moved from Chicago to Plano TX about five years ago. Steve is a regional director of physician operations at Texas Health Resources, a large health system in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. The Allreds love Texas, especially the mild winters. I hope all of you have been able to check out our class Facebook page in addition to checking us out on Twitter. I love getting updates from all of you, so please email me your news and feel free to brag. — Laurie (Strotman) O’Malley; ndbug3@hotmail.com

00JD Spring Class Notes

So at least a few of you are still alive and well. I heard the Val (Steer) Marsh has migrated to Detroit where she is counsel, corporate and finance at General Motors. Marissa McDermott was elected a circuit court judge in Lake County IN. She is the first woman to be elected circuit court judge in the history of Lake County. Danny Cevallos moved from Philly to Manhattan, and is still running his law firm, Cevallos & Wong, while under contract as a legal analyst for CNN. Ryan Bennett, a bankruptcy partner with Kirkland & Ellis in Chicago, is Danny’s biggest groupie. Adam McLeod reports that he and wife Katie are doing fine in Mobile AL. They have five daughters, ages 9, 7, 3, 2, and 1. Adam is a professor of law at Faulkner U’s Thomas Goode Jones School of Law, and recently completed a monograph on the natural law foundations of property law and a textbook on the foundations of law generally. Dennis Ring reports that he and Lauren McCormack were married on Oct. 9, 2015 in their hometown of Queens NY. NDLS 2000 was well represented at the celebration with these classmates attending: Joseph Butscher, Akram Faizer, Michael Galibois, Elizabeth Hanlon, Sarah (Shive) Jansen, Chris Parent, Melissa (Rolland) Parent, Kevin Peinkofer and Eric Steiner. It was a great evening, which included an awful rendition of the ND fight song. And last September, Dennis and Lauren celebrated the arrival of son Dennis Joseph. I’m told that he is the fifth Dennis Ring in a line that stretches back to the late 1800s somewhere in the Irish bogs of North Cork. After nearly a decade in the rackets division of the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office, in 2010 Dennis started his own firm. The practice focuses on criminal defense and personal injury litigation. We’ve got momentum now, folks so let’s keep it going. God bless, and go Irish. — Brian J. Murray; 178 Cranston Court, Glen Ellyn IL 60137; doubledomer2000@gmail.com

01 Please Send Updates

Claire Bula married Kevin Keenan in Madison WI. In addition to the parents of the bride, William Bula ’77 and Elizabeth Neary ’77, there was a very strong ND showing including: Christopher Berry ’68, Brian Neary ’73, Robert Dempsey ’73, Frank Byrne ’73, Frank Tennant ’76, Richard FX Johnson ’77, Maggie Gillespie ’77, Paul Gillespie ’77, Lee Ann Russo ’77, Pat Tennant ’77, Michael Bula ’79, Allison Vendt, Kristen Fitzpatrick ’02 and Meghan Johnson ’09. Claire and Kevin live in San Diego where she is the senior director of marketing and communications for CONNECT, a tech and life science startup accelerator. Kevin works in sales for an e-commerce startup. Emma and Michael Anselmi welcomed a baby boy in November. Elias Simmons Anselmi has already found a future girlfriend in Caroline Sheedy, who was born in September to Elizabeth and Patrick Sheedy. Zak Kordik got a tambourine directly from Eddie Vedder at a Pearl Jam concert in Chicago. As of press time, it is unclear whether Zak will be touring with the band full time. I am happy to report any updates you send me, but as you can see, I have been short on news. If you’re like me, you tend to start at the back of the magazine to read these updates, so let’s keep them exciting. — Megan Murray 2015 N. 56th St., Milwaukee WI, 53208; 414-213-4687; meganmurray45@aol.com

01MBA Update for 2017

Mark Ezell successfully defended his dissertation at The U of Pennsylvania and obtained his doctorate in organizational leadership. Please email me any updates you would like to appear in the Class Notes. — Dominic Pang; dpang@panglaw.com

01JD Oh Baby

We have many babies to introduce. Anne-Marie (Wieland) and Scott D’Angelo welcomed son Francesco (Frank) Joseph on Dec. 19. His parents and four siblings were very excited for his arrival. Amy Greene welcomed daughter Catherine Marjorie (Margie) on Dec. 11. Frank and Margie had their first lunch date in early January and became fast friends, just like their moms. JonMarc Buffa and his wife, Liz Kelly, got an early Christmas gift with the arrival of their daughter, Nora Kelly, on Dec. 22. She was a few weeks early, but is doing well. Megan and Jason Scheiderer welcomed son Edward Francis (Teddy) on Feb. 9, 2016. Siblings George, Henry, Patrick, and Olivia gave Teddy a great welcome. In addition to her in-house law practice, Emily Chang has started a retail clothing business selling LulaRoe clothing. I can attest to how comfortable the leggings are. On Nov. 8, Christine (Harding) Mayle was elected to Ohio’s Sixth District Court of Appeals as an appellate judge. She began her six-year term in February in Toledo where the court sits and hears appeals from all trial courts in northwest Ohio. The Sixth District is one of 12 intermediary appellate courts in Ohio, sitting directly below the Ohio Supreme Court. Christine received the Republican nomination just 90 days before Election Day, so she and her family had a very busy fall campaigning. Kristen O’Connor Golby made her way to Chicago in January to visit Shannan (Ball) Younger, and they met up with Sarah (Bassler) Millar, Laura Weiler, and Kathy Brannock. As always, I try to get classmates to friend me on Facebook and ask to join the Notre Dame Law Class of 2001-1 group so that I have a way to keep in touch with you so we can keep our class column full of fun updates. If you’re in that FB group, please don’t accept the requests to join from random people who were not in our class, and don’t add people not from our class. Our listserv has lost about 120 of our classmates. Please also go to my.nd.edu to set up or update your profile with a good email address. Thanks. — Jonell Lucca; cell 602-677-3266; jonelllucca@yahoo.com

02 Reunion Registration

There were no alumni updates this quarter, but I want to take the opportunity to remind everyone that our 15-year Reunion is scheduled for June 1-4. You should have received an email from the Alumni Association with details, but if you haven’t, please go to my.nd.edu and make sure that your contact information is up to date. The weekend will be full of planned activities and plenty of downtime to enjoy campus. Friday night’s dinner is a Taste of ND on North Quad, with food vendors setting up food stations. Saturday night’s class dinner is at Legends. Both evenings include a class beer tent. There will be a class Mass and we are looking to organize an outdoor activity, tournament or gathering. Let us know if you have any ideas. Most questions we’ve received involve child care and the email that went out provides more details. Children ages 4-16 can take part in the children’s program on Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. It costs $100 per child and includes lunch and dinner meals. Past activities have included field trips to a children’s museum, swimming, movies, recreational events, art projects, and Jordan Hall of Science activities. A complete agenda of activities will be posted closer to reunion. Children under 4 are eligible for nightly daycare on Friday and Saturday evening from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. This option costs $40. Our class will have a designated dorm. Families with children can stay in a designated family dorm. If you have any questions or ideas, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me or Chad Silker, csilker@alumni.nd.edu. And if you are on the fence about going, I thought I’d share that I had the best time at our 10-year reunion. I was torn between going back for reunion or a football game, but there is something about being on campus during the calm of summer and having more time to catch up with friends that made it the best decision. I’m not sure I’ll be able to make it this summer because we live 4,500 miles away, but I promise you will not regret it if you go. Please let us know if you have questions or ideas. — Lisa (Sestile) Corcoran; lsestile@alumni.nd.edu

The company has grown to 15 clinics in Illinois and Indiana, and will expand to Detroit.

Max joins big brother, Reid (a family name for Sarah) and big sister Claire, and Charlie joins big brothers, Reid (a family name for Chase) and David, and big sister Evelyn.

She and her husband Netesh have two sons, Nihal, 12, who was born at ND, and Sahil, 10. Cortney McDevitt left Jackson Lewis, the national labor and employment boutique in 2013, and did a “career pivot” to the world of human resources. She is now the director of people operations (Silicon Valley’s way of saying HR) for Lyft, and has bought hook, line, and sinker into the company’s mission of improving people’s lives through the world’s best transportation. In more personal news, she will marry her fiancé, Mike Marchetti, in May.

For the last three years, John has taught courses at the U of Pennsylvania Law School, including Law of Nonprofit Organizations.

She is survived by her husband Tony, parents Tom and Vicki Horn, sister Jackie (Jason) Josuns, in-laws Bill and Rita Maher, many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and countless friends who adored her. She had practiced law since commencement in Michigan and North Carolina. Classmates are encouraged to share condolences and memories about her: lifestorynet.com/obituaries/jennifer-horn-maher.115345.

07JD I’m Kind of a Big Deal. People Know Me.

Brian Kiolbasa was elected shareholder at Lane Powell, PC, a Pacific Northwest law firm with 200 attorneys in Oregon, Washington and Alaska. Brian practices in the Portland office, concentrating on the representation of financial institutions, businesses and individuals in a broad range of commercial and complex litigation matters. Congratulations to Brian on his promotion, and for rising on the donor target list at Notre Dame due to me publishing this. Drinks are on Brian next time. Bruce Connolly has been selected as a New York Super Lawyers Rising Star for 2015 and 2016 in the area of criminal defense. Bruce was admitted to the bar of the U.S Supreme Court in June 2016 and to the Florida State Bar in December 2016. Bruce lives in New York City with his wife and daughter, but the family is planning to move to the Sunshine State. With no publication last time and only two items this time, I will take the opportunity to throw in a little something about me. However, the real credit goes to Brian Salvi ’09, ’13JD, as the first chair for a verdict received for a client of Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P. C. Much credit also belongs to Andrew Burkavage ’06, who was instrumental in the client’s result as well. The three of us had the honor to represent a young woman who was struck by an intoxicated driver while parked at a minimart. She suffered serious neck and arm injuries, as well as psychological injuries. The defense essentially believed she was a faker, and their pre-suit offer suggested as much: $25,000. The jury saw otherwise and signed a verdict for $1.4 million. Hooray for justice. I love hearing about your lives. I think others do, too. So make it more frequent. Big or small, give us an update. — Patrick A. Salvi II; Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard PC, 22 W. Washington St., Suite 1600, Chicago IL 60602; 312-372-1227; psalvi2@salvilaw.com

In October, the U.S. Supreme Court denied review of a case Justin successfully argued in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Justin and his wife Eve, daughter Mia, 5, and son Marcel, 2, recently moved to Arcadia CA. Neha (Bansal) Hannan reports that husband Will Hannan made partner at his firm Oxfeld Cohen PC in Newark NJ. Will’s firm specializes in labor law, employment law, employment contracts, and workers compensation law.
