Northwest Indiana Criminal Defense Lawyers
Defending your rights in the criminal justice system in traffic violations, DUI and other criminal charges
In the United States, a person is considered innocent of a crime unless proven guilty in a court of law. You are protected by the U.S. Constitution and precise Indiana rules of criminal procedure if you are charged with a crime. Understanding how the law applies to your case is vital to ensuring you are treated with justice and fairness through all stages of arrest and prosecution.
Our seasoned criminal attorneys at Rubino, Ruman, Crosmer & Polen possess more than a combined 165 years of trial experience and in-depth knowledge about criminal law. We vehemently defend your fundamental constitutional rights to a fair trial and just verdict that is based upon the merits of your case.
Polished litigators who obtain the best results for our clients
Our polished litigators thoroughly review the facts of your case and carefully strategize your best approach. We demand that the prosecution present evidence that proves its case beyond a reasonable doubt. If the state attorney’s case fails to meet this strict standard, we aggressively fight for charges to be dropped or assertively pursue a not-guilty verdict at trial. Our substantial courtroom experience gives us the insight to recognize when negotiating with the prosecution is in your best interest and to skillfully construct a fair plea deal.
Drunk driving is a serious matter with a life-altering impact on your family, career, finances and personal well-being. Law enforcement has intensified its efforts to detect individuals who drive under the influence of alcohol and narcotics, and the judicial system has increased the severity of punishments imposed on those found guilty of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI).
Convictions often result in loss of driving privileges, heavy fines and incarceration. Prison sentences are more common than ever for drivers who cause DUI accidents or have a history DUI arrests. If you or a loved one makes the mistake of driving under the influence, Rubino Ruman, Crosmer & Polen can help you through the legal process. We represent you in Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) hearings, challenge Breathalyzer® results, negotiate for reduced charges and resolutely defend you in DUI trials.
