Mr. Haskin is the founding partner of the AV-rated Indianapolis law firm of Haskin & LaRue, LLP, the largest employment law firm representing only employees in the state of Indiana. The firm serves clients throughout Indiana from its central location in the Indianapolis Fire Headquarters building in downtown Indianapolis.

A native of Indianapolis, Mr. Haskin graduated from Chatard High School, then Indiana University in 1972. Thereafter, he began working full time for the Indiana Civil Rights Commission as an investigator, conciliator and legal intern while attending the Indiana University School of Law at Indianapolis at night.

Allison Gas Turbine, General Motors Corporation, where the defense verdict from the bench trial was reversed and judgment entered for the sexual harassment plaintiff by the Court of Appeals. Another case was Lehman v. Yellow Freight, where the plaintiff's reverse race discrimination trial verdict was upheld.

Mr. Haskin incorporated the Indiana Veterans' Officers' Association as a non-profit corporation and provides counsel to this organization.
