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 we can build you the strongest defense possible. We believe this is the best approach, as it increases your chances of obtaining a favorable outcome. Our firm handles many types of criminal cases, including:

DUI/OVWI/OWI

If you are arrested and charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI), you need to contact our criminal defense attorneys as soon as possible to help you understand your options. Penalties for OWI convictions can be significant, including jail time, steep fines, and the suspension or revocation of your driver’s license. Act now to ensure that your rights and freedom are upheld.

Drug Crimes

The state of Indiana takes drug crimes very seriously. Even if police officers find a small amount of a controlled substance in your possession, you could face severe consequences. Depending on the quantity and type of drug involved in your arrest, you may be looking at several months or years behind bars and costly fines. Reach out to Ooley Law today to discuss your situation, and we’ll dedicate our efforts to helping you obtain a favorable outcome.

First-Time Criminal Offenses

If you are facing your first criminal charge, you are likely feeling overwhelmed and anxious about your future. At Ooley Law, we strive to advocate for the dismissal or reduction of these charges so that you can learn from your mistake and move on with your life. If a dismissal is not possible, we’ll seek alternative sentencing options that are designed to support your rehabilitation instead of merely punishing you. Call today to learn more.

Probation Violations

Those who violate the conditions of their probation may face additional consequences, including more jail time, steeper fines, or similar restrictions on their freedom. If you’ve been accused of violating the terms of your probation, reach out to Ooley Law so that we can help you understand your options and discuss the best legal strategy to ensure that your future remains bright.

Sentence Modifications

The criminal justice system will sometimes recognize that people are capable of positive change. In some cases, an individual may demonstrate a genuine desire to improve themselves and begin a new life chapter on the right foot. Our criminal defense lawyers will work with you to determine the best way to pursue a sentence modification, advocating for a more constructive and therapeutic course that supports your efforts to rejoin society. 

Expungement

A criminal record can certainly impede your housing and employment options, as well as cast a shadow over your reputation. Our firm can determine whether you may be eligible for expungement, and if so, we will work hard to ensure that your rights are restored. Our goal is to help you start over without being haunted by your past mistakes. 

Habitual Traffic Violations 

If you have been convicted of three or more traffic violations within a ten year period, you could be considered a habitual traffic violator. For instance, if you have an OWI conviction, a hit-and-run conviction, and an officer pulls you over for reckless driving, you could face severe consequences for this third traffic violation. You will likely face a license suspension lasting anywhere from 5 years to permanently. Reach out to Ooley Law today to learn about how we can help you fight these charges and obtain a favorable outcome.
