Carmel Criminal Defense Attorney

Fighting Criminal Charges in Carmel and Valparaiso. 17+ Years of Legal Experience!

Being in the criminal court system is not an everyday experience for many people. It’s intimidating, uncertain and highly complex, which is why you need a criminal defense lawyer who not only treats you like a friend but also knows how both sides of the courtroom operate. These two qualities can help your case thrive.

I, Eric Blankenship, am a Carmel criminal defense attorney who was a former prosecutor in Indiana’s largest county, Marion County. From this experience, I formed valuable relationships with most prosecutors in the area and have in-depth knowledge of how the prosecution builds a case and plans its approach.

I will leverage this insider knowledge to strengthen your case by exposing their bluffs and flaws. Not many criminal defense attorneys have this experience, and many don’t take the time to form a personal relationship with their clients.

At Blankenship Law, LLC, you can rest assured that your case will be treated with the utmost respect and priority, as I can defend you as if my own freedoms were at risk. I help clients facing life-changing experiences by giving honest answers to their legal questions and aggressively advocating for their best interests. Plus, I’m available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to answer any questions and concerns.
