Tom Neizer
Everyday Star

The Everyday Star represented in my painting is Tom Niezer. Tom is a partner with the law firm Barrett & McNagny LLP and works with both the Mad Anthony Children’s Hope House and Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana – a cause close to his heart as he lost a brother to cancer.

Many lawyers, law firms and courthouses use Lady Justice to represent their work. Lady Justice is usually shown as a female figure wearing a blindfold and holding a sward in her right hand and set of scales in her left hand. The blindfold asserts that justice is blind to race, creed or station in life and is a good symbol for the Mad Anthony Children’s Hope House and Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana as they both help and support those from all walks of life. The Mad Anthony Children’s Hope House provides a temporary, low-cost home-away-from-home for families whose children are being treated for serious illness, injuries or birth defects at Fort Wayne area hospitals. Therefore, the scales of Lady Justice are shown holding both a doll and teddy bear.
