When you are being investigated for or charged with a crime, it is vital that you talk to an experienced attorney before you talk to anyone else. You must understand your criminal defense options.
Talking to a criminal defense attorney may be the most important thing you do.
The attorneys at Foley, Foley & Peden, P.A., believe that all citizens charged with a crime deserve to be treated fairly under the law. We specialize in DWI/OWI, probation violations, record expungements, and specialized driving privileges.
People often think there is no defense for a charge of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) or Operating While Intoxicated (OWI). However, that is not always the case.
An effective, experienced advocate can question why you were stopped, the reliability or validity of any tests administered, whether there was sufficient probable cause for your arrest or any other issue that may arise.
These charges can have a significant impact on your driving privileges and the charges are more severe if you have a prior conviction. Contact us today to learn how we can help you.
The attorneys at Foley, Foley & Peden, P.A., have successfully negotiated and argued sentencing in probation violation cases in multiple Indiana counties.
If you have been charged with violating the terms of your probation, or fear that you will be, contact the attorneys at Foley, Foley & Peden, P.A., to discuss the potential outcomes of such a charge and what options you may have.
The Indiana Legislature has enacted laws over the past several years that provide for the opportunity for an individual to petition the court to have a criminal conviction expunged from their record.
Potential employers and others cannot access criminal records that have been expunged and you can answer positively on a job application that inquires as to past convictions.
There are certain requirements to file expungement petitions, mostly that you have not had another conviction within five years for misdemeanor offenses and within eight years for most felony offenses.

Specialized Driving Privileges/Hardship License
Most people who have had a license suspended need and deserve the opportunity to get back on the road. Lawmakers in Indiana have changed the laws regarding hardship licenses, now known as Specialized Driving Privileges.
The change in the law greatly expanded the number of individuals who qualify for such licenses. Contact Jim Wisco at Foley, Foley & Peden, P.A. to see if you qualify.
