Amanda C. Price

Associate Attorney
Indiana Criminal Defense Lawyer - Amanda Price

My dream has always been to fight, advocate, and care for others.

I chose to study Social Work for this reason and knew that my heart for others would equip me to work with people in hopes that I could make a positive difference in their lives. During my last year of college, I worked at a residential treatment facility for youth involved in foster care and/or probation. While working with these kids I saw how much their backgrounds, families, and circumstances affected the opportunities and choices provided to them. It was frustrating how these kids were often written off without anyone looking deeper into their backgrounds. After this experience, I knew that I needed to go into criminal defense and make sure that no one was written off just because of one moment in their lives. Social Work gave me the knowledge and understanding that people are products of their environment, but becoming a lawyer would provide me with the ability and position to personally advocate for people who were often written off by the criminal justice system.

I started my legal career at a law firm that focused mainly on family law but also practiced criminal defense. This was a great opportunity for a young lawyer, but when the Criminal Defense Team had an opening for an Associate Attorney position, I knew I needed to apply. I had known about the Criminal Defense Team and what they stood for and how they advocated for their clients.

As a criminal defense attorney, I have the privilege of meeting people from all walks of life. I get to show my clients that they have value and their stories matter. And ultimately, I have the honor of speaking on their behalf and advocating for them in court.

Fighting, advocating, and caring for my clients means not backing down or taking the easy route. No matter the charge or allegation, each person deserves someone who is willing to fight, advocate, and care for them.  Each day I get to work with a Team that considers and investigates all the aspects of a case and is willing to fight and dig in to make sure all facts are presented to the court. While I am excited that I have achieved my dream to fight, advocate, and care for others, I am even more thrilled that I get to do it with the Team.

“I believe I took a lot of hand holding.  Amanda Price was my attorney, the whole team was Amazing. Going into a case where you can feel scared and alone and having people who are there to answer any and all questions that you may have, can not only put you at ease but help you make the right decisions for yourself and for your family.  These are the right people.  They made me feel that my personal growth and success were just as important as the success of my case.  Thank you for everything.  Highly recommended.” – Laura M.
