The newest member of the Pardieck Law Firm family is Julia Stickles. As the receptionist, Julia's job is key as she represents the first impression of the firm to many of our clients and visitors, either on the phone or in-person.

Priscilla M. Wischmeier has dedicated 36 years of her life as a paralegal; 34 of them with Roger Pardieck. In her position, Priscilla is responsible for all aspects of a case including intake, client contact, fact discovery, damages, discovery responses, discovery requests, scheduling, document organization, expert witness communication, technology issues, software, mediation and trial presentations. Many times, it can be a challenge to put all the pieces together as every case is unique. While settlements out of court are always preferred, but getting a deserved verdict from a jury is a sense of justice and gives Priscilla great satisfaction knowing she has helped a person in need. Priscilla still resides in Seymour where she was born and raised. She earned her B.S. in Legal Administration from the University of Evansville. Giving back to her community is a major source of additional pride for Priscilla. She currently serves as the Vice-President for The Community Foundation of Jackson County and a Board member of Leadership Jackson County and The Lutheran Community Home. She also has extensive service as Past Chairman of the Board of the Greater Seymour Chamber of Commerce; Past President and Capital Campaign Presenter of Girls Incorporated of Jackson County; Past President and Drive Chairman of the United Way of Jackson County; and Leadership positions with St. John’s Lutheran Church and Chi Omega Sorority at Hanover College.
