Worker’s Compensation

Created by the Indiana legislature, the Indiana Workerʼs Compensation System is designed to deal with work injuries for the benefit of employees, employers, insurance providers, and medical providers. This system is intended to provide a safety net for Hoosier workers who are injured on the job while protecting the financial interests of Hoosier businesses. As with most government programs, Indiana’s worker’s compensation system can be complicated, difficult to understand, downright counterintuitive, and highly inefficient. If you are looking for an attorney with over 25 years of experience who can help you navigate this complex area of law, please give Ooley Law a call.

Criminal Defense & Expungement

Ooley Law has provided aggressive defense strategies and delivered favorable case results to individuals facing criminal accusations as well as to those who have had their rights infringed. With the guidance of our team, you can be rest assured that we are working tirelessly to secure you a desirable resolution. When you work with a criminal defense attorney from our firm, we take actions that vigorously protect your rights, defend your freedom, and seek a positive resolution for you. Unlike other firms that push cases to finish quickly, Ooley Law takes the time to get to know you and develop a personalized strategy to help ensure that your needs are met. We believe this is the best approach. Our firm handles many types of criminal cases, including:

  • DUI / OVWI / OWI
  • Drug crimes
  • First-time criminal offenses
  • Gun charges
  • Habitual traffic violations
  • Handgun licenses/handgun license appeals
  • Probation violations
  • Sentence modifications
  • Theft crimes

We also handle expungement cases to restore the rights of those that may have a felony conviction in their past. If you want to learn more about the expungement process and whether you might be eligible to pursue this option, reach out to Ooley Law today to get started.

Firearms & Gun Trust Law

When it comes to matters involving firearms, it is important for you to understand your rights. If you are facing a criminal charge involving a firearms offense, you need a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney who will fight aggressively to protect your rights. In addition to criminal matters involving firearms, there are a wide variety of other matters involving firearms such as handgun license issues, TSA administrative actions, and “red-flag law”, to name a few. The attorneys at Ooley Law are also firearms instructors certified by the National Rifle Association and the Second Amendment Foundation Training Division, so their deep understanding of firearms laws will allow them to implement a successful strategy to fight for your freedom.

Our familiarity with firearms laws in Indiana also allows us to help you establish a gun trust as part of your estate plan. Gun trusts are estate planning mechanisms that allow certain restricted items, such as short-barreled shotguns, short-barreled rifles, or suppressors to be transferred more easily to family members or co-trustees. If you are interested in exploring whether establishing a gun trust is right for you, contact Ooley Law for more information.

Mike and Alex also offer a legal concepts course regarding self-defense, use of force, and other firearms law topics. This course is particularly pertinent to those who have or plan to acquire a license to carry a handgun. For more information about this course and other firearms training opportunities visit

Family Law Mediation

If you are facing a divorce or need assistance with another family law matter, we encourage you to consider mediation. Mediation offers the opportunity for divorcing spouses to create their own solutions with the guidance of a neutral professional who facilitates the conversation, known as the mediator. Rather than a bitter and expensive legal battle in court, mediation allows individuals to work together to achieve an outcome that works for both parties.

Civil / Worker’s Compensation Mediation

Mediation is also a wonderful option to explore in matters involving civil disputes. If you are currently facing a legal issue involving worker’s compensation, estates, personal injury, property or boundary line disputes, civil rights, contracts, business, or employment disputes, Ooley Law can help you settle your matter through mediation. Clients who turn to mediation instead of court to resolve their dispute often comment on how empowered they felt throughout the process, allowing all parties to walk away with a sense of peace and relief. Call Ooley Law today to learn more about how we can help or visit

Civil Rights

We can help you resolve a wide array of civil rights cases, including instances of police brutality, false or unlawful arrests, unlawful shootings, prosecutorial misconduct, and other violations of your constitutional rights. Whether we resolve your matter through mediation or in a court of law, Ooley Law is here to aggressively defend your rights and take a tough stand against violations of your civil liberties.

Personal Injury

If you have been injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to pursue compensation under Indiana state law. Whether you have been the victim of a car or truck accident, or another incident that has left you incapacitated, you should work with a skilled personal injury attorney who can help you file and pursue a claim. Call Ooley Law today to learn more.

Simple Wills, Powers of Attorney, Living Wills, and Probate

Ooley Law will work with you to create a simple will, advance healthcare directive, powers of attorney, and other key documents that safeguard your wishes.
