How Our Lafayette Attorneys Can Help
Adoptions & Guardianships
If a child is left without the care of a parent, a guardianship can often help. In some cases, an adoption is best to provide the child a permanent new parent or parents. Guardianships can also help if an adult becomes incapacitated by advanced age or physical or mental health problems.

Criminal Law Representation in Lafayette, IN
When you are being investigated for or have been charged with a crime, it is critical that you talk to an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as you can. Every case is unique. We can advise you on what to expect and will work hard to achieve a good outcome.
DUI (Operating a Motor Vehicle While Intoxicated)
The ramifications of a drunk driving conviction can be significant. It is very important to have legal representation to determine whether your rights were violated in an arrest and to detect any possible errors in the investigation.
The consequences of a conviction do not end when the court closes your case. For example, a criminal record may make it very difficult to find a job. There have been significant recent changes to the expungement laws. We can advise you if you are eligible and, if so, draft a petition based on your circumstances.
Specialized Driving Privileges
In 2015, new rules went into effect to allow eligible suspended drivers to get specialized driving privileges. Even if you were ineligible under the old systems of hardship or probationary licenses, we can work with you to get specialized driving privileges if you are eligible.
