I’m Eric Blankenship, and I’ve dedicated my professional career to protecting the rights of others. Growing up in Southern Indiana, I learned the value of hard work and persistence. I was the first in my family to attend and graduate from college. After graduating from University of Southern Indiana, I worked for a year in the newspaper business before pursuing my dream of becoming a lawyer. I attended law school and graduated in just over two years by going year round while also working as a law clerk at a local firm. After finishing law school, I was hired as a deputy prosecutor in Hamilton County.
While at the prosecutor’s office, I learned from the ground up. I started in the screening department which meant I took in all misdemeanor and low level felony cases and decided what, if any, charge(s) to file. Soon thereafter, I was moved into the Superior Courts where I prosecuted those same types of cases and was quickly promoted to the major felony courts. I was then recruited by the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office and was immediately placed into the Major Felony Division. Within one year, I was promoted to Major Felony Supervisor of four felony courts. While there, I tried a large amount of cases including burglary, sex crimes, robbery, fraud, and homicides. After almost five years with Marion County, I was appointed the Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for Blackford County.
Ready to Fight for You
After seventeen years as a prosecutor, I opened Blankenship Law, LLC with the desire to use my knowledge and trial skills for those that desperately need strong legal representation in the judicial system. I have brought my strong work ethic, persistence and empathy for others to form a law practice that helps those in serious need. I have offices in the Greater Indianapolis Area in Carmel and in Northwest Indiana near Valparaiso. If you find that you need an attorney that will stand by you and fight for your best possible result, call me.
