We take each case as it comes, working one-on-one with clients to identify their unique goals and come up with solutions.

“Found myself in a sticky situation so I hired Brad after doing research. He was upfront with what I was facing but was also very confident in his ability to assist me with the best possible outcome. He was very responsive (within minutes) which is huge for me especially if you’re in a scary situation. The outcome was more than what I could have hoped for. The staff was very kind and you didn’t feel like just another client. Highly recommend this firm and Brad!”

“Adam Brower provided me a great service. He was a great advocate for me and was able to get me the best possible resolution for my case. I am very happy with the outcome. His communication throughout the case was transparent and intentional. He walked me through every step of the process and made me feel at ease. I would refer him to anybody looking for a criminal defense attorney.”

“Gasper was absolutely amazing! I couldn’t have wished for a better lawyer. He was thorough, honest and communicative through the whole process. He got my case dismissed and armed me with any information to proceed with normal life and what to expect. HIRE Gasper any and every time!”
Jared S. - Google Review

I came across the worst situation of my life. Scared, confused, and unsure of what to do, I contacted Banks and Brower. I am so thankful I did because I met and hired Bill Frederick!! I can not express my gratitude enough for everything he has done for me and my family! An amazing lawyer and person to care the way he did! He genuinely cared about my situation and helped me to get my life back!! I will be forever grateful!!

“I highly recommend Joe Wycoff with this firm, particularly if you are younger American passionate about where you want to go in life. As a former prosecutor, it was apparent to me that Mr. Wycoff valued my potential and was passionate about representing me and squaring my case away.”

Brad Banks and Adam Brower have the intel from the other side of things to provide the type of poignant criminal defense their clients desperately need. Working with past prosecutors gives you a distinct advantage as a defendant in Indianapolis, whether you’re facing a driving under the influence (DUI) charge, domestic violence charges or violent criminal felony.

A criminal conviction could affect the rest of your life. A skilled attorney is vital in a criminal trial, especially in more serious criminal cases. Trust the highly successful attorneys at Banks & Brower. We understand how criminal law works in Indiana and can build a strong strategy for your defense or a plea deal. Let us protect your future by combating criminal accusations against you or a loved one.

Family Law

Having an experienced, reliable family law attorney representing your best interests during divorce cases, probate court, custody issues, and other important legal matters can make all the difference – not only in the outcome of your case, but in your experience for its duration. The right lawyer will give you peace of mind during one of the hardest times of your life. Whether your individual goal is to keep your divorce as easy as possible or to come out on top of a complex property settlement, we can help.

Personal Injury

The Banks & Brower personal injury team gives injured accident victims a voice in Indianapolis civil court systems. We represent those hurt in auto accidents, slip and falls, workplace injuries, campus accidents, dog attacks, acts of violence, and medical practice throughout Indiana. Our personal injury representation involves coming up with the best solution to our clients’ needs, and then working hard to make our goal a reality.

Our attorneys work day and night to get to the bottom of who or what caused a terrible personal injury accident and how to prove someone else’s negligence or intent to harm. We can gather evidence relating to your case, hire experts to testify on your behalf, interview eyewitnesses, and take other steps to help protect your future. Our trial-tested team has the ability to take your case all the way to the courtroom if necessary, although we can settle most personal injury claims without requiring a trial. We’ll take the action we deem most suitable for your unique case.
