Cohen & Malad, LLP congratulates Lynn A. Toops, the Indiana Trial Lawyers Association 2015 Consumer Advocate of the Year. Lynn was selected for this honor in part for her work in bringing a class action lawsuit against the State of Indiana Department of Child Services on behalf of nearly 1,800 Indiana families. She served a leading role in this lawsuit that resulted in a settlement of over $15 million for Hoosier families who adopted special needs children out of the foster care system and were denied adoption subsidy payments from the State of Indiana.

Lynn focuses her practice on class action litigation and is particularly interested in consumer protection matters. Some of her recent work includes data breach class action litigation against health care insurer Anthem and medical software provider Medical Informatics Engineering, Inc. (MIE). Both of these suits involve millions of consumers whose personal and medical data was compromised when hackers accessed customer data base files.
