General Info
If you are in need of a criminal defense attorney, please call me at 317-695-7700 for a free consultation to discuss your case. I have personally handled thousands of criminal cases. I will explain the law to you, listen to your goals, and discuss different options that are available to you. I began my legal career in criminal defense, fighting to protect the Constitutional rights of my clients against the government. I have experience in every stage of the criminal justice process, including jury trials, court trials, suppression hearings, post-conviction relief, forfeiture proceedings, 1983 civil rights actions, appeals, oral argument, probation revocation hearings, expungement, sealing of records, hardship license petitions, specialized driving privileges petitions, and plea negotiations. I teach criminal law at the IU School of Law and have been recognized as one of the top 10 criminal defense attorneys in the State of Indiana under the age of forty by the National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys. I have even represented a fellow criminal defense attorney and two former Marion County Sherriff’s deputy after they were arrested and charged with crimes. I filed the Federal Class Action lawsuit of Washington v. Marion County Prosecutor, in which Indiana’s vehicle forfeiture statute was held to be unconstitutional under the Due Process clause of the US Constitution. I also co-authored the amicus brief for the United States Supreme Court case of Timbs v. Indiana, in which the Supreme Court held that Indiana’s attempts at forfeiture were unconstitutional under the Excessive Fines clause of the US Constitution. It is my goal to provide excellent legal representation at affordable prices. I realize each of my clients is a real person, not just a file. I understand that even the best people can occasionally make mistakes, and I believe every person charged with a crime deserves to have an attorney fighting for them in court and protecting their Constitutional rights. If you have any questions about your case, please do not hesitate to contact me. You can also find more information on our website at www.cardellalawoffice.com I look forward to hearing from you.

Overall

I hired him on my criminal case and he did very good and was a lot better than any attorney I have worked with in the past. He really cares about your case and not just getting a plea signed.
