I’m Cole Galloway and my objectives are making sure clients: Understand the crime they are charged with; Understand their federal and state constitutional rights; Zealously protect their interests.
I am a Northwest Indiana native and grew up playing soccer and running track in the Chesterton School System. After high school, I continued playing soccer and running track at Saint Joseph’s College, which is where I developed my passion for law by studying political science. After college, I attended and completed Valparaiso University’s accelerated law school program in two-and-half years. I graduated law school in December 2017, passed the Indiana Bar Exam in February 2018, then went to work in both the private practice sector and in two prosecutor’s offices. Since becoming a licensed attorney my focus has been on criminal law, which is why I decided to obtain valuable experience as a deputy prosecuting attorney.
While I was a deputy prosecuting attorney in Tippecanoe County, I was assigned to Superior Court 4. In Tippecanoe County, I prosecuted drug-related offenses ranging from misdemeanors to Level 5 Felonies. Then when I joined the Lake County Prosecutor’s Office, I was assigned to Superior Court County Division Room Three. In Lake County, I prosecuted various crimes, including – but not limited to – operating while intoxicated crimes, drug-related offenses, traffic-related offenses, illegal possession of firearms, fraud, as well as battery and domestic battery. While I was a deputy prosecuting attorney I argued numerous cases at trial, motion to suppress hearings, and motion to dismiss hearings. Through my experience as a deputy prosecuting attorney, I developed essential skills that help me defend clients’ rights when they are charged with a criminal offense.
