The Federal Justice System

The federal government may choose to prosecute a case in federal court, rather than state court for a variety of reasons. This decision is often influenced by a variety of factors, such as large criminal enterprises, the type of criminal activity, and criminal activity that crossed state lines.

Charges are often filed in federal court for:

      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!

      "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!
      - Heather H.
      "I would highly recommend Adam to any clients in need of an attorney!"
      Adam is an awesome attorney in all aspects that offered and delivered a lot of help and all that he promised when we had originally first talked. He is very affable, and always is very quick to get back to you and answer all of your questions clearly. I would highly recommend Adam to any clients in need of an attorney!
      - Natalie R.
      "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!
      - Carol D.
      "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!

      Adam has been upfront and direct with me about possible outcomes but never stopped working for the best possible outcome.

      "Definitely recommend him! His pricing is reasonable as well!"
      Adam Tavitas got my probation dismissed after a probation revocation. He even took on all my other cases of driving without a license on after I hired him! Definitely recommend him! His pricing is reasonable as well!
