Criminal Defense

Alex Mendoza Law helps people who have been accused of a crime. Criminal accusations effect many innocent people, even people that did not commit the crime. Everyone is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. That is a very high standard, and our job is to prove that the prosecutor cannot meet that standard. Our firm understands that your liberty is precious to you and your loved ones. Alex Mendoza Law is committed to building the strongest case possible for our clients. If you or a loved one has been accused of a crime, do not hesitate to call 219.200.2000 or email us at for a FREE CONSULTATION.

Traffic Offenses / Tickets

If you have been charged with a traffic offense, you need to take it very seriously. Some traffic offenses, such as driving without a license and driving on a suspended license, are considered criminal offenses. Also, if you accumulate traffic offense convictions, you may be charged with being a Habitual Traffic Violator (HTV) or Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO), which could lead to your license being suspended for 10 years.

Other Criminal Accusations or Offenses

Alex Mendoza Law handles a variety of criminal cases, from Misdemeanors to Felonies. If you have been charged with a crime, please contact an aggressive criminal attorney, Alex Mendoza, before you talk to the police / authorities. Remember, you always have the right to speak to an attorney. Do not hesitate to call 219.200.2000 or email us at for a FREE CONSULTATION.

Why you need a experienced criminal lawyer:

When confronted with the severe consequences of potential penalties or incarceration, enlisting the services of an experienced criminal defense lawyer becomes imperative. Each criminal case is unique, and a skilled lawyer can adeptly identify compelling arguments and factors that might lead to the dismissal of charges related to the alleged crime.

The Role of a Criminal Defense Lawyer in Securing “Plea Bargains” or “Deals”:

A proficient criminal defense lawyer can significantly impact sentencing through the negotiation of “plea bargains” or “deals” with the prosecuting party. Such negotiations may not only result in reduced sentences but, in some instances, even the complete elimination of certain charges. Should you be found guilty, a skilled lawyer can advocate for lesser time served or enrollment in a rehabilitation program, aiming to prevent future involvement in the criminal justice system. During consultations about your case, a criminal defense lawyer can offer expert advice on the best course of action to minimize your sentence, sometimes suggesting that pleading guilty may lead to a shorter sentence.

Emotional Support Provided by Your Criminal Defense Lawyer:

Although a criminal defense lawyer is not a therapist, they can provide valuable assistance in helping you cope with the emotional turmoil often associated with criminal trials. By explaining the realities of the legal system and preparing you for potential challenges during the trial, they can ease some of the emotional burdens. With their in-depth knowledge of the legal process, your lawyer can also guide you through court rules, regulations, and the intricate pathways of the system. Moreover, their understanding of the “unwritten rules” can lay a crucial role in securing a reduced sentence.
