Criminal Defense In Central Indiana

If you are under investigation or have been arrested and charged with a crime in Indianapolis or Hamilton County, contact the law firm of Coots, Henke & Wheeler first. Attorneys Jim Crum and Jenna Bailey are experienced in representing people charged with drunk driving, drug possession and all other misdemeanors and felonies. Whether you’ve been arrested at Ruoff Music Center for marijuana possession or illegal consumption or were involved in a fight and charged with battery, our criminal defense lawyers are the right choice to fight for your rights.

Because most criminal cases do result in penalties being imposed on those arrested, one of the most important things to consider in searching for an attorney or a law firm to represent you is its ability to work with judges and prosecutors to help clients minimize their punishment. Hamilton County itself is particularly well-known for its tough stance on crime, and our experience and the strong working relationships we have with judges and prosecutors are tremendous assets to our clients.

We handle all felony and misdemeanor criminal charges, including:

Wherever possible, our experienced criminal defense lawyers will challenge the facts and evidence and seek to have the charges against you reduced or dismissed. But, in the majority of criminal cases, this may not be possible. In these cases, our lawyers will help you understand the law and the legal options that you have available, and then work to try and achieve the best possible result.

In addition to providing criminal defense, we also help clear your record of past criminal charges through expungements. Indiana’s Second Chance Law is relatively new, but attorney Crum has already been successful in clearing criminal records for his clients. An expungement can provide an opportunity to tell prospective employers that your criminal history is clean.

We can answer your questions about Indiana traffic law and OWI charges and provide an opportunity for you to speak with an experienced Indianapolis drug charge lawyer about your arrest. Contact the law firm of Coots, Henke & Wheeler in Carmel, Indiana, today, and ask for Jim Crum or Jenna Bailey.
