When the Department of Child Services gets involved in your life, it is very common to soon be charged with “neglect of a dependent.” We have successfully defended clients accused of this crime. The defense can take place in a variety of ways. Sometimes we don’t deny the allegation (such as leaving the child in a car while getting groceries) but do deny that it amounted to child neglect. Other times we absolutely dispute what occurred. It is common for a child to have bruises or broken bones, but how did those bruises and broken bones occur? Perhaps you know, or perhaps you don’t. Is there another viable suspect that can have a finger pointed at them?

The definition of “neglect” in Indiana is very specific and is really the starting point for any good defense. Of course, if the prosecutor does not believe that your attorney will fight for your client all the way to trial, then you will not get the outcome you deserve.

One of our lawyers fought all the way to trial for clients who believed, for religious reasons, they did not have to take their children to the doctor or hospital. When one of their children died, the media in this high-profile case made the clients out to be a monster. They needed a champion, in spite of public sentiment. They got that champion. Even though the trial in that case did not result in victory, the clients received very lenient sentences due to the work of their attorney. At that time the attorney did not work for us, however, she carried that experience with her, along with more than 20 years of experience when we hired her a few years later.

Experience matters when defending clients accused of neglecting their dependents or any other crime. The Criminal Defense Team has Board Certified* attorneys with the knowledge and experience to handle your case. Contact us at (317) 687-8326.

National Board of Trial Advocacy Certifications

Our Board Certifications

More than 15,000 lawyers practice in Indiana, but only 6 can claim the title of Board Certified* Criminal Law Specialist. Amazingly, 5 of those 6 certified specialists work closely together in the same law firm…our firm. Our team has been assembled by design, not happenstance.

Board Certification is an elite title reserved for those lawyers who have expertise and dedication in one area of law as well as extensive trial experience. We are proud of that title and what it represents. Our Board Certified* lawyers fight for our clients and work with all of our lawyers every day to help obtain the best possible outcome for our clients.

You wouldn’t want a general practice doctor who is not board certified to handle your heart condition, why would you want a general practice law firm with no Board Certified Criminal Trial Specialists to handle your criminal case?

*Andrew Baldwin, Mark Kamish, Kathie Perry, Maxwell Wiley, and Carrie Miles are certified Criminal Trial Specialists by the National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA), a nonprofit organization that certifies attorneys of various legal focuses. To earn an NTBA certification, an attorney must demonstrably show the highest levels of trial experience, competence and integrity.
