On January 12, 2024, the Indiana Supreme Court issued an order approving the suspension of attorney Allison K. Devis due to multiple probation violations stemming from alcohol-related criminal offenses.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of: Alison K. Devis,” with case no. 23S-DI-310.

In July 2021, Devis was convicted of drunk driving and leaving the scene of an accident. Less than a year later, in September 2022, she pled guilty to two counts of criminal trespassing. A little over two weeks after her September 2022 pleas, Devis failed to comply with probation requirements. She did not report to her probation officer and missed a court hearing. Devis was also arrested with a blood alcohol content of 0.354.

A new violation notice was then filed alleging Devis had not completed a mandated substance abuse evaluation and abstained from alcohol. An evidentiary hearing was held in March 2023, where Devis was found to have breached probation terms. The Court order noted Devis’ probation was extended to December 2023 and the Disciplinary Commission agreed her conduct violated professional rules.

As a result, on January 12, 2024, the Court issued an order approving a 90-day suspension for Devis’ actions, with 30 days actively served, and the remainder stayed pending two years of probation monitored by the Indiana Judges and Lawyers Assistance Program (JLAP).

Additionally, Devis must fulfill the duties of suspended attorneys and pay $257.85 to cover both the investigative expenses of the Disciplinary Commission as well as court filing fees and other costs billed by the Supreme Court Clerk’s office for handling the disciplinary case.

According to avvo.com, Ms. Allison K. Devis practices in Indianapolis, Indiana. She acquired her law license in Indiana in 2004.
