Aggressive Criminal Defense Representation
Being charged with a crime is one of life’s most serious and stressful events. Our attorneys are skilled at defending individuals facing prosecution. We vigorously advocate on behalf of our clients to achieve the best result possible. We believe in tireless preparation of your case and will be well-positioned for your day in court or to negotiate a favorable plea agreement per your direction. . Our extensive experience defines our proficiency in several areas of criminal law, including but not limited to:
- Drunk Driving:Being charged with operating while intoxicated can have serious ramifications on a person’s life. If you are convicted of drunk driving you face jail time, probation, and other significant consequences. Our attorneys can guide you through the often confusing world of license suspensions and specialized driving privileges, so that while charges are pending you can try to manage your life as we defend against the criminal charges.
- Battery and Excessive Force:Disputes between people should always be resolved through dialogue and peaceful means. But if you find yourself charged with battery, you need a lawyer who knows the ins and outs of self-defense, provocation, intent and other critical concepts. This is especially true when an officer is facing excessive force allegations. You need the best in your corner.
- Official Misconduct:Public figures, including first responders, sometimes face charges of malfeasance in the discharge of their duties. Such scenarios require a lawyer who is adept at the nuances of government, politics, and top flight criminal defense.
- Expungement:Merely being arrested for a crime can leave a blemish on your record. But being convicted of a crime can create serious long-term employment consequences. Fortunately, the Indiana General Assembly passed a law allowing persons arrested or convicted to seek the clearance of their criminal record. Petitioning for an expungement permits you to move forward without being labeled a “criminal” by potential employers, and allows you to legally answer “no” when asked if you have ever been arrested or convicted of a crime. Our attorneys are here to leverage the law for your benefit.
