I got a free phone consultation with her. She gave me the right advice for my son in IU. She explained the process clearly and provided the guidance I needed to make me more at ease.

I got myself in a heap of trouble. I contacted Mary after talking to one attorney who told me not to worry about it, that the whole thing would most likely just "go away." 7 months later I was arrested and charged with a range of 41 felonies, class C and D. Mary was consistent in her advice, practical and was always straight with me. It wasn't always what I wanted to hear but I was prepared for everything that happened. Mary negotiated a plea agreement that kept me out of jail (only served two days when I was first arrested.) and had conditions that were more than reasonable.

Mary was very helpful and supportive throughout my case. I appreciate all that she did for me. At first I was hesitant about hiring a lawyer but after all she did to help me out I'm very glad that I made the decision to hire her. With this being my first time ever being in trouble or dealing with the court system I was completely lost and it was great to have her there to help me and give me guidance through the whole process. I would definitely recommend mary to anyone. She is a great lawyer. She was also very down to earth and easy to talk to. If your debating on what lawyer to hire or trying to figure out if you should hire one at all then I recommend that you go ahead and make the same choice as I did and hire mary. You wont regret it!

Ms. Higdon is an extremely competent attorney that went out of her way to keep me well informed through every step of my court process. She was very well spoken with her arguments at my suppression hearing and i highly recommend her as a criminal defense attorney.

Mary Higdon helped our family navigate through a difficult situation. She went out of her way to be available to us and her expertise and professionalism were most impressive. We felt comfortable asking questions about the specifics involved in the situation and she was timely and thorough in her responses. We would highly recommend her.

I am a graduate student at IU and I got into a bit of trouble. I contacted Mary on a Sunday and she was happy to explain my charge and my options. I also spoke with 3 other lawyers in town over 1-2 days. I decided on Mary because she has experience as a Monroe County prosecutor. I wanted someone who had knowledge of what went on in the prosecutor's office and who knew the people there well.
I'm high maintenance, and contacted Mary often to discuss my case. She never seemed to mind, and was always available either immediately or would respond to me quickly.
I was worried that I would lose my scholarship, and even worse never get a good job due to my charge. She totally understood my concerns, and negotiated a complete dismissal of my case.
I hope I never need a lawyer again, but if I do I will choose Mary. She was empathetic, knowledgeable, and effective.

I found Ms. Higdon in the yellowbook. She answered the phone personally (not a receptionist and then maybe I got a phone call back from a lawyer) and listened to the issue I was having. I was HTV until I called Ms. Higdon. She was able to get two of my speeding tickets reduced to non-point offenses. This was important because without her help I would not be able to get my license back for 5 years. This was also important because now I am employable. Not only did she get the tickets reduced but she did it within one week. Ms. Higdon was the fastest and most professional lawyer that I have had the pleasure of dealing with and I have 4 lawyers working throughout Indiana. One more thing that was great about this experience is that the whole transaction was done over the phone. She understood what needed to be done and she accomplished our goal. I can't thank Ms. Higdon enough and I would certainly encourage anyone to hire Higdon Law.

Mary kept us informed every step of the way, and I felt she thought "outside the box" and was able to get our case dismissed. She was easy to contact, and that is very important, as I feel there is nothing worse than having to chase someone. Very pleasant! Hopefully we will not need a lawyer again, but if we did, I would not hesitate to hire Mary again.
