Indiana Criminal Defense Lawyer

A Former Prosecutor Who Is Uniquely Qualified To Practice Criminal Defense, Immigration Law, Family Law and Business Law

At the Law Office of Jonathan Bruce in Carmel, Indiana, I use my wealth of legal experience and a unique background in international volunteer service and education to protect my clients' rights in criminal defense, immigration law, family law and business law cases.

As a former felony prosecutor and public defender, I understand what it takes to gain a conviction in criminal trials and, conversely, how to find holes in the prosecution's case that lead to favorable judgments or the dismissal of cases.

In addition, I have extensive experience living and teaching overseas, including two stints as a Peace Corps volunteer. I speak Spanish, French, Russian and Bulgarian as well as English. My international experience makes me uniquely qualified to work with legal matters in which criminal law and immigration intersect.

Any noncitizen who is convicted of certain crimes in the United States may face deportation, exclusion, loss of a visa or green card status, and denial of U.S. citizenship. If you are a noncitizen facing a criminal charge, you need a lawyer who knows both criminal and immigration law — a lawyer who can keep you out of jail and prevent you from being deported.

Cincinnati Immigration Attorney

My firm serves residents throughout Indiana and southwestern Ohio, including West Chester, Covington and Fort Mitchell. Whether I defend you on a criminal charge, work to resolve an immigration issue or handle a family law or business law matter, I avoid formulaic approaches, preferring instead to find the unique aspects of each case that help produce the best possible outcome.

Through my work as a felony prosecutor and public defender, I was involved in hundreds of criminal cases. I know how to identify questionable police behavior, the improper handling of evidence and poor investigative techniques. I am skilled at putting the prosecution on its heels to gain the advantage in negotiating reduced charges or pushing for your case to be dismissed completely.

My work with individuals and businesses in immigration law covers the full spectrum of needs in that area, from seeking asylum to work visas and family-based visas. I also help immigrants defend a deportation action resulting from a current or past criminal charge, a visa overstay, the loss of immigration status or any other reason.

In the area of business law, I help entrepreneurs determine the best structure for their company and tackle the myriad legal issues that come with running a business, including contracts, partnership disputes, buy-sell agreements and commercial real estate lease and purchase agreements.
