What is a Defense Lawyer?

When you're going to be tried for a crime, you have two major options for legal representation:

  • A criminal defense lawyer
  • A public defender

You may remember hearing upon your arrest, as part of your rights, "If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you." This is an option you'll want to avoid if you can. This court-appointed attorney is called a public defender, and they are usually not as motivated to fight for you as a criminal defense lawyer, also known as a criminal lawyer or defense lawyer. You're also not guaranteed someone very experienced or qualified.

It may seem too costly to hire a private defense attorney at first consideration, but how much is a favorable verdict really worth? A lot more than the cost of hiring an expert. At the Law Office of Adam Tavitas, we provide consultations for free to help minimize costs.

Avoiding a Conviction

While police and other justice system officials can make your situation feel hopeless, the good news is you have legal rights and options. Police are not perfect, and with the help of a tenacious advocate like me on your side, we may be able to uncover evidence that supports your case. During your free consultation, we will go over everything we know about your situation and discuss how to proceed.

The Law Office of Adam Tavitas helps clients with issues such as:

I have handled many cases of various kinds, giving me the experience to check for evidence and other details that may have been overlooked when you were originally arrested. Just because you are in trouble does not mean your situation is hopeless. Let me help you.

      "A friend recommended Adam Tavitas. I could not be more happy about that recommendation."
      Needed help with a case in Porter County Indiana. Being out of state I was a bit worried about having to return for court. A friend recommended Adam Tavitas. I could not be more happy about that recommendation. Adam responded to my call immediately, explained my options and provided easy payment options. The resolution of the case was my biggest concern and that worked out very well. Adam is the complete package, Responsive, Professional and cost effective. Hopefully I never need his help again but I definitely will keep his contact information for future issues. Thanks Adam!

      "Very Impressed!"
      We recently hired Mr Tavitas to represent our son for a marijuana citation in Porter County. From our first phone call, it was clearly evident that he genuinely cared about our sons case. He was very upfront about the prospects of the case, the steps he would take and the approximate cost to us, which was very fair and reasonable. Mr Tavitas is incredibly accessible. If he misses your call, you will be getting a return call in a very short time. Being kept informed of everything going on in our case was very important to us and he delivered! Highly recommend Mr Adam Tavitas!

      "Highly recommend Adam. His prices are reasonable and he wont nickle and dime you like other attorneys. He's fair, and looks out for you as a person. Thanks Adam!"
      Adam did exactly what he said he would and helped me with my felony traffic case to get my charges reduced, helped me avoid community service, and even helped me apply for a restricted driver's license so I can still drive until my suspension is up. He answers your texts/calls, provides great advice and thoroughly explains your charges and the course of action you'll take at court. He's a great criminal defense attorney. Highly recommend Adam. His prices are reasonable and he wont nickle and dime you like other attorneys. He's fair, and looks out for you as a person. Thanks Adam!
      - William
      "He got the charges reduced, great communication, and cares about the case he is taking on."
      He got the charges reduced, great communication, and cares about the case he is taking on. Never had to talk to a receptionist and wait on a call back since he gave his personal work phone number (being able to text/call) and got back as soon as he was able to. Very happy we came across him, not many compassionate lawyers out here that cares like he does. Will definitely recommend and hire again if needed!
