Serving The Greater Indianapolis Metropolitan Area

With nearly 20 years of legal experience, and 2 office locations to serve you.

Criminal court can be intimidating, uncertain and complex. That’s why you need a dedicated criminal defense lawyer who knows both sides of how the courtroom operates. And a lawyer that treats you like a personal friend. These qualities increase your chance of a successful outcome.

As a former Marion County Prosecutor, Indiana’s largest Criminal Court system, my job was to build cases against defendants with the goal of convicting them. This experience gave me an intimate familiarity of how the prosecution builds a case and develops their strategy. It also gave me the opportunity to work with most prosecutors in the area and to develop valuable, long term working relationships with them.

Today, these skills are used to protect my defendant clients. This insider knowledge can be leveraged to strengthen your case by exposing all the bluffs and flaws in a prosecutor’s strategy.

Not many criminal defense lawyers have this deep level of experience. And many don’t take the time to form a personal relationship with their clients.

Your case will be treated with the highest priority and respect, as Blankenship Law will defend you as if my own freedoms were at risk. By giving honest answers to your legal questions and aggressively fighting for your best interests, you can face life-changing situations with a skilled advocate by your side, every step of the way.
