Firm History

The Experience of Generations.  Kahn, Dees, Donovan & Kahn, LLP, traces its origins to 1908 when Isidor Kahn began practicing law in Evansville, Indiana. Mr. Kahn, an honor graduate of Indiana University Law School, became recognized as an expert on tax and labor law. He was also widely known for his litigation prowess and business acumen.

Harry Dees joined Mr. Kahn in 1935, and became a trusted advisor to a wide array of commercial enterprises throughout the region. In 1966, Mr. Dees argued and won a case before the United States Supreme Court.

Arthur Donovan joined the firm in 1946, bringing with him considerable experience in the then newly developing field of labor law having previously served as a regional attorney for the National Labor Relations Board.

Since then, we have enjoyed over six decades of steady, controlled growth, adding attorneys and areas of expertise as the needs and objectives of our clients have evolved and expanded. Today, we provide legal services in most areas of general civil law.
