The Evansville native’s legal career began in, of all places, ViệtNam.
During the war, then-Lt. Noffsinger served as the legal officer at U.S. Army 2nd Signal Group Headquarters in Long Bình, about 20 miles east of
Sàigòn. Long Bình was, at the time, the largest American
base outside the continental United States. For his service, Lt. Noffsinger
received the Bronze Star and the U.S. Army Commendation medal.
Immediately following his experience in the military, he served as Chief
Deputy Prosecutor in Evansville
, a position he held until 1974. In the decades since his prosecutorial
days, Mr. Noffsinger has represented individuals and corporations in complex
cases in private practice.
He is currently in the process of appealing the constitutionality of the
1975 Medical Malpractice Act, which limits the damages that may be awarded
by courts when finding in favor of victims. Mr. Noffsinger has also recently
advocated on behalf of compulsive gamblers who fall prey to casinos that
exploit their addiction. In this capacity, he was recently invited to
speak at Harvard Law School where he was awarded a Certificate of Recognition
“for his courage, creativity, and commitment bringing lawsuits against
casinos on behalf of compulsory gamblers targeted by those casinos.”
