In the United States, people accused of crimes are presumed innocent until proven guilty. However, from the very first moment that you are arrested or charged with a crime, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney to guide you through the legal process and protect your rights from police officers, detectives and prosecutors that have one common goal—taking away your freedom. Needless to say, with your freedom, reputation, and job at stake, you need to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney.
Over the course of my legal career, I have been fortunate enough to serve at all levels of our judicial system. I had the privilege to work at the Marion Superior Court-Juvenile Division, Marion County Superior Court-Criminal Division as a bailiff/legal intern to the Honorable Judge Tanya Walton Pratt, Indiana State Court of Appeals where I worked with the Honorable Judge Margret G. Robb and at the Indiana Supreme Court where I served as law clerk to the Honorable Justice, Robert D. Rucker. I have tried numerous criminal cases, including bench trials for misdemeanor charges to multiple day jury trials for major felony crimes. In your time of need, put my legal experience to work for you.
At the Law Office of Corey L. Scott, we understand that being charged with a crime is a terrifying experience. We will act before any rights afforded to you under the Indiana Constitution or United States Constitution are violated, evidence is lost, key witnesses disappear and memories fade. Contact Attorney Corey L. Scott at (317) 634-0101.
Simply put, our office is dedicated to being legal problem solvers. That is, you bring us your legal problem, be it:
And we will provide a professional solution that fits your case. Specifically, we will review the facts, assess the strengths and weaknesses of the case against you and work with you to develop a strategy that best serves your interests.
The outcome of criminal cases depend upon factors such as: the facts surrounding the crime, the availability of witnesses, the strength of the evidence, quality of police work and most importantly the preparation, strategy and execution of vigorous defenses employed by your defense attorney. My years of experience have taught me how to use tactics such as pre-trial motions (to dismiss your case, suppress evidence or exclude witnesses), the discovery process (depositions, taped statements, etc.), selection of a jury willing to be open and truly hear your case, and methodical, thorough, hard-hitting cross-examination of witnesses that reveal the truth and exposes weaknesses in the State's case.
If you are being investigated or have been arrested, please understand that you have absolutely no obligation to speak with law enforcement authorities. Please do not allow police officers or detectives to make promises to reduce your charges or possibly dismiss your case in order to get you to make an incriminating statement. If law enforcement authorities attempt to question you, tell them that you would like to exercise your right to remain silent and contact a criminal defense attorney.
