Sadly, I found myself in a situation where I needed an attorney. However, I didn't want to settle for just any attorney. I wanted one that would genuinely listen to my concerns, give me honest feedback, one that empathized with my situation and one that would work hard in my behalf. Thankfully, I received all of that with JR. He truly cares about the individuals that he represents. JR is a hard worker and an overall good and sincere person. I truly appreciated his hard work and dedication. Thanks again and again!

JR is a problem solver, he works well with people and is very comfortable in court. For my particular situation, I did not need to go to court, but I have seen him before and was very impressed. He helped me understand the importance of dividing assets early and staying on the best terms possible in order for the separation to work. My ex and I are decent friends and JR made this a very easy thing for us. I hope you the same! Glad I chose JR, couldn't have imagined this going any smoother than this!

We Protect Your Privacy

Indiana law considers public access to judicial records and proceedings to be a right protected by the First Amendment and Sixth Amendment. Under Indiana law, court records and family law proceedings are available to the public. However, it is still possible to protect your privacy. If an attorney can show that making the records public will result in irreparable physical or financial harm, Court records can be sealed. Our Carmel divorce attorneys will similarly take steps to safeguard any financial or personal information that is disclosed to your spouse’s attorney.
