Providing Assurance & Confidence When You Need It the Most

Arrests and criminal charges are among the greatest challenges you will ever face. If you or a loved one has been charged with a crime, you are likely experiencing stress, confusion, and uncertainty. You may not know where to turn, what your charges mean, and how they will affect you. Your reputation, your job or career, your future, and your freedom may all be at stake. 

At the Law Office of B.D. Williams, we understand the duress of criminal charges and being thrown into a system you may not fully understand. Our mission is to help you at this critical time, to provide the legal support you need, to advise and counsel you on your rights and options, and to see that you are treated fairly throughout the legal process. The State of Indiana has harsh criminal laws and the penalties for a criminal conviction can be quite severe. Even if the charge is relatively minor, you will want to know that your attorney brings competence and commitment to the fight. 

When you retain our services, you can have confidence knowing that our Indianapolis defender has substantial trial experience. Whether you are facing a minor misdemeanor or a more serious felony, your case will be handled with diligence and dedication. 

Our Criminal Defense Legal Services

The Law Office of B.D. Williams handles a wide range of criminal law matters, as seen below.  It is important to know that all crimes, including both felonies and misdemeanors, must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. This is a tough standard to meet which often gives you the opportunity to fight back with evidence that may cast doubt on the state’s case. However, not every potential strategy may be obvious to someone who is not experienced in defending cases.

As your criminal defender, our attorney possesses the knowledge, experience, and tenacity to investigate your case in detail and explore all of your options. It is also important to remember to seek legal representation as soon as you realize that you are being investigated. In some instances, hiring a criminal defense attorney early in the process can affect whether a prosecutor pursues criminal charges at all.

We serve the greater Indianapolis area and the surrounding counties of Tippecanoe and Madison.
