Aggressive, Focused, Strategic Defense

Dedicated Indianapolis Criminal Law Attorney

If you or a loved one is facing criminal charges, do you want your attorney’s first suggestion to be a plea? Negotiations are an important aspect of most cases and sometimes a plea is the best option, but it should not be a lawyer’s only strategy. A criminal defense lawyer should be prepared to fight the prosecution for you, taking the case to trial if that is in your best interests.

Tompkins has been protecting the rights of individuals charged with misdemeanors and felonies in Indiana for more than 15 years. For a consultation with an Indianapolis criminal law attorney, please call 317-631-6866.
