Powerful Attorney!!!!
Mr. Ingram was hired to defend a felony case for me and trust me I have never before hired an attorney and didn't know really what to do or if this attorney or any attorney could help me or would be honest or genuine enough to believe what happened to me, I have heard enough stories about people spending allot of money to defend and fight for them and they end up worse off, a sentence and thousands in debt!!! Well here is your answer HIRE ANDY INGRAM, HE WILL FIGHT FOR YOU & WIN!!! Mr. Ingram was always on top of his game, he returned all my phone calls, he listened and was sincere, he even made sure I did not forget my court dates, a couple of times Mr. Ingram called (not his secretary), to make sure I was there or I better be in route to the courthouse, that is an attorney who sincerely wants to defend you well and makes sure you are on the same page, this in my opinion is unheard of, because trust me I did my research I over researched and all my searching came back to Mr. Ingram and really all the thanks goes to God for leading us & protecting us through it all!! Also you know what the best part is Mr? Ingram was hired at a steal!! Honestly I thought I would never admit this being a cheapskate but, he deserved more. Would you ever say that about an attorney that you have already paid, they deserve more? Well he is that good, these days nobody pays for something a get perfection in return!!! Thank you so much Mr. Ingram for everything you have done for me and my family!!!!! Tom

Professional, Timely and More Than Competent
In April of 2022, I was arrested for defending my home and property from a subject who was refusing to leave my residence. Upon my release, I first tried to handle the matter through the Public Defender's Office. Weeks went by with no sort of contact and it did not appear as though the Public Defender had my best interests in mind. After enough frustration, I finally contacted the Dunham & Ingram Office and I wish I had done it sooner! Mr.Ingram acted swiftly and professionally. He reassured me and helped dispel any concerns I had. He also went through with me and explained step by step how the process would go. When I sent emails to his office or called them on the phone, there was always a friendly voice on the other side that was willing to speak to me. Mr.Ingram responded to my emails promptly and timely on every occasion. Mr.Ingram conducted his research of my case and found that I acted within accordance of the law and subsequently filed a "Motion to Dismiss". Within 3 days, the state attorney's office had dismissed all of the charges against me. Andy did more to help me within a week, than the public defender did within a month. If you find yourself in a terrible situation like I did, call Mr.Ingram. This is your life and livelihood at risk. I can't thank him enough for the services he offered to me.

Awesome Lawyer
I was on felony probation and had a misdemeanor warrant issued. After calling a few lawyers that only wanted to talk money, I lucked out and got Andy. This man listened, ask questions, I mean really dug in deep. This was all before money was discussed. He then called me very early the next morning with information. I hired Andy that day. I never spent ANY time I jail and 6 months later, I’m a free man. If you want the best, knowledge guy with all the right relationships, hire Andy. Oh and ya, he also really cares for his clients-a real nice person.

Complex International Situation
I had searched and reviewed several Lawyers in Marion County and had selected Andy Ingram to review our situation. Mr. Ingram quickly returned my call and over a couple phone conversations I sent him all of the documentation. This was a very complex international situation involving potential foreign charges. After Mr. Ingram's review and his investigation he quickly fixed the situation and relieved our concerns. I am retired and worked with many International Lawyers on out Staff and many other Fortune 500 Companies. I found Mr. Ingram extremely Professional, Knowledgeable, and Polite. We would hire him in any future applicable situation.

Where Skill and Compassion Meet.
My case that is involving the assistance of Mr. Andy Ingram is still ongoing and I don’t want to directly discuss the specific details at this time. However, I would like to discuss my experience in general. It is the second case that I have been assisted with by his firm but this is first case involving his help. He is not only very knowledgeable, but he is always willing to listen to my concerns. He makes it a point to make himself available. He consistently keeps my best interest in mind, and is pursuing my case passionately, and with kindness. I can’t recommend him enough.

THE BEST
Me Ingram was very supportive throughout this process he listened and worked with me the whole time and being a paralegal myself listened to my idea's contacted me about everything that he came across he is very respectful of the courts expedited the court's time didn't argue with the prosecution in front of the judge which kept the courts happy and in the end I came out better than the negotiated plea i would recommend this from to anyone whether civil or criminal and let me say you can't put a price on freedom. Anyone who needs a attorney needs to hire this firm thank you Andy Robert Lowrance.

Attorney review
Mr.Ingram came highly recommended to me .... I discovered why within minutes of meeting Andrew. He was extremely assertive and focused on the issues at hand . He addressed the situation in a very professional manner , he was also very thorough explaining the situations I was dealing with ...it helped me understand what I was up against which actually made me feel a lot more comfortable with the entire situation and process. He made me aware of the various outcomes that could happen in the judicial process. He naturally told me of the most desirable outcome along with the things that could happen that would most certainly not be desirable. He saw the case through to the end and I believe his patience and professionalism ended up getting the best verdict possible...!!!! Andy Ingram is a polished professional that made dealing with the court system in our country a very comfortable situation. I would recommend him in a heartbeat again and again. My son and myself thank him sincerely...

testimonial
This note sent to Andy 5/23/18, after he had already represented me for several months. This testimonial symbolizes the challenges of multiple variables faced, both professional and intensely personal.... "......I am so grateful for your understanding, support, sound counsel, and highly personalized approach to my situation & case. I could not have gotten through the past length of time here in NY without you. When things in all aspects of my life were going berserk around me, I could always count on you to provide calm guidance....." I would endorse Andy unequivocally due to his unique handling of my case, but more importantly, for his honesty, integrity, foresight, fairness, and human decency. Andy is the best attorney I have worked across any specialty, bar none.

Attorney Andy Ingram: Nothing short of AMAZING!!!
Where shall I began... I have hired several attorney's over the years to attempt to get me an early termination of probation to no avail. Back in December, I decided to give it another shot... This time, I researched several attorney's and had consultations with at least 5 of them. Out of those I researched, Attorney Ingram appeared to be the best attorney for the task at hand. After I spoke with him over the phone and discussed the surface facts of my case, I knew that Andy was going to be the one that I would hire. Fast forward to case #1... Andy was able to successfully get the early termination in that case with ease. The 2nd case proved to be a tad bit more challenging. What impressed me the most is the communication in which I received along the way. If Andy told me that he would get back with me with information by next week, that is exactly what he did. He worked methodically and diligently to gain the early termination in which I was seeking. He did this when other attorney's said that it couldn't be done. Thank you Andy and team!!! You guys ROCK!!! Oh, and if you are looking for an attorney who is intelligent, aggressive and persistent who gets results... STOP - You just found him!!!

100% RECOMMENDATION - Outstanding - Dismissal for False Accusations - Very thankful for Mr. Ingram
My spouse and I had less than two weeks to find someone we could trust to handle the false accusations against him. These accusations involved his four-year-old daughter on behalf of her mother. Minutes after his daughters’ mother and he were called to the stand, Mr. Ingram had gotten the domestic violence injunction dismissed. Being able to find someone who allowed us to walk into his office after an initial phone consultation, living 2-3 hours from the court who served him, was the first thing that realized we made the right choice. Mr. Ingram gave us his undivided attention and proved his loyalty as the best attorney in Marion County. I highly recommend Mr. Ingram, as he puts his clients first.

Excellent Lawyer
Mr. Ingram did an excellent job with my case. Not only was I extremely happy with the results, charges dropped, I was impressed with his communication. He made sure I knew what was happening and where I needed to be even when I was hard to reach. Would definitely use again, but hopefully I won’t have to.

Professional, Responsible, Creative and Competent
I had a long standing injunction against me. The judge was hesitant to dismiss it without prejudice. After only a few months of negotiation with the oppositions' attorney, Mr. Ingram came up with a clever resolution that satisfied all parties involved. I no longer have the restrictions that I had with the injunction but I now have a civil mutual protection from that party as well. Mr. Ingram took as much time as needed to discuss my options with me. He never rushed me off the phone like so many others have. This attorney set the bar when it comes to professionalism, responsibility, creativity and competency. Should I ever need a attorney for any reason, Mr. Ingram will be my only call. He got me my freedom back!

Criminal defense Attorney | Aug 20
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I can't remember the last time I went online to endorse a lawyer, but after working with Andy I felt compelled to do so. Andy represented a mutual client on a violation of probation. Andy accomplished something for the client that few attorneys could or would do. He contacted the probation officer before a violation was submitted, advised the officer that the new arrest was eventually going to be dropped and asked the officer to "delay" the preparation of the violation and warrant for the Judge to sign. Much to my surprise the officer agreed. The new arrest got dropped, and the client was never even arrested or the Judge notified about the new law offense. Great work!"
