Former state rep. regains law license after 22 years

Munster — A former lawmaker from northwestern Indiana has had his law license restored 22 years after it was suspended.

The Times of Munster reports the Indiana Supreme Court reinstated former state Rep. William Drozda, D-Gary, to the practice of law on Dec. 19.

Court records show Drozda had his law license suspended in 1991 following a determination by the court's disciplinary commission that he committed 10 counts of misconduct involving client neglect, including failing to show for court and missing deadlines.

The 1995 Supreme Court order suspending Drozda awarded credit time dating back to his initial 1991 suspension, meaning he could have sought reinstatement immediately. Court records indicate he filed for reinstatement Sept. 13.

Drozda represented Gary in the Indiana House from 1976 to 1982.
