White collar crimes are often associated with felony charges, which can bring lengthy jail or prison sentences, along with crippling fines and other penalties. Some of the various types of white collar crime cases we’re skilled at handling include those involving charges of:
- Identity theft
- Insider trading
Sex offense cases can be particularly complicated, as they often rely heavily on witness accounts, rather than definitive physical evidence. Even if there is physical evidence, however, the defense may have options for discrediting that evidence or getting it thrown out of court.

- Rape, including date rape and statutory rape
- Sexual assault and sexual battery
- Sex crimes against children, like child molestation and child pornography
- Prostitution, pimping, and solicitation
- Requests to be removed from the Indiana Sex Offender Registry
Murder charges in Indiana often trigger high-profile criminal cases and the possibility of severe penalties. When you’ve been arrested for or charged with murder, the trusted lawyers at Leeman Law can take swift action to protect your rights and fight the allegations.
Depending on the circumstances of your case, it may be possible to strengthen a murder defense case by doing things like (but not limited to) proving:
- Reasonable doubt
- Procedural errors made by police or labs
- Failure to honor the rights of the accused
These are just some of the tactics that may be effective at getting evidence thrown out, charges reduced, and/or sentences reduced.
The verdict and sentencing phase of a criminal case does not have to the final word on the matter. Depending on the circumstances surrounding a case, it may be possible to appeal a conviction and/or the sentence handed down by an Indiana court.
However, in order for criminal appeals in Indiana to be successful:
- There must be legal grounds for the appeal.
- Appeals must be drafted, submitted, and presented in the right way.
