Judge Superior Court 2

On January 13, 2016, Jon Brown, of Noblesville, filed his Declaration for Candidacy for the Republican nomination for Judge of Hamilton County Superior Court 2.

Jon has practiced law in Indiana since 1998 after graduating from Indiana University.  He has practiced primarily in areas of civil litigation, including family law and tort litigation.  Jon also served as a public defender in Hancock County from 1999 to 2006.

Currently, Jon operates the Bankruptcy Law Office of Jon Brown with its primary office located in Noblesville and a satellite office in Greenwood. His current practice includes the representation of individuals and businesses in the bankruptcy court and litigation involving debt collection and secured transactions.  On occasion, Jon has also served as Judge Pro Tem in the Fishers City Court.

“I have a strong work ethic and appreciate the difficulties and problems people face.  I have practiced law for nearly twenty years in counties across the state of Indiana.  As a judge, I will be serving the taxpayers of Hamilton County.  Many people rarely step foot in a courtroom, but when they do, they want to know the person sitting as judge will listen to what they have to say and give a decision that is not only fair to the parties, but also a decision that adheres to Indiana law.”

Although born and raised in Arizona, he has called Indiana home for over 20 years, and he has lived in Noblesville since 1997.  Jon attended Indiana University for law school.  His wife, Molly, is an attorney working at Roche Diagnostics.  Jon and Molly are currently working on restoring a home in historic Noblesville, where they live with their three sons and daughter. “Noblesville and Hamilton County are a great place to raise a family and it is nice to have planted some roots over the past twenty years,” Jon says.  Robert is a junior at Indiana University, while Mitchell and Sam attend Noblesville High School.  Also, to their surprise, they welcomed the newest member of the family on December 30th with the birth of their daughter, Jane Elizabeth.

Jon has been actively involved in the community since moving to Noblesville.  He has been a baseball coach at Noblesville Youth Baseball and Babe Ruth since 2000, and he has coached roughly 20-25 teams.  He has been active as a board member with Noblesville Youth Baseball and has served the league in various capacities from Board Member, Fundraising Chair to Program Director.  He currently serves on the Board of Trustees for the league. Additionally, Jon has been a volunteer basketball coach at the Noblesville Boys and Girls Club and helped as a parent volunteer with the Noblesville Elementary Football League. In addition to giving his time, Jon also is a perennial league sponsor with these youth sports organizations and others, including Noblesville Girls Softball.

In addition to spending a good portion of his volunteer time furthering youth sports, Jon has also dedicated countless hours to scouting.  He served as Cub master for three years with Cub Scout Pack 211 at Hinkle Creek Elementary and now helps with Troop 101 at Noblesville First United Methodist Church where he currently serves as an adult leader.  This summer, Jon will be heading to the Philmont Scout Reservation in New Mexico with Troop 101 scouts for a 2-week high adventure trip.

Jon attends Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in Noblesville and routinely serves as a lector at Mass on Sunday mornings.  Jon also assisted with leading Christ Renews His Parish at OLG several years ago.
