Thank you for taking the time to review my profile information.  I am currently practicing in Northwest Indiana with my office in Merrillville.  I am licensed in Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin.  I have been in practice for over 11 years.  From 1999 to 2005, the majority of my practice focused on the defense of personal injury lawsuits.  In 2005 I started my own office where I still handle insurance defense cases, but I have expanded into handling plaintiff's personal injury, bankruptcy, divorces, corporate law, real estate, contracts, and probate. 


My philosophy for representation of clients is simple.  I provide clients with the best legal representation possible, make myself available for all client inquiries, and educate and inform my clients about the entire process to ensure that they are comfortable with every stage of the representation.


Clients can rest assured that when they hire me, they will get to speak with me directly, work with me directly, and get my full attention.  Free initial consultations are available with flexible office consultations including evening and weekend appointments.  So if you have legal problems...DON'T GO AT IT ALONE!

Positive review for Minh Wai
Minh was very generous with his time and consistently gave me his full attention. His ethical approach to law practice made working with him a feel-good experience while also seeing justice served and getting a fair shake for what I was into. He genuinely strives for fairness overall and was still a strong advocate for what I wanted. Next time i need representation, I know who I'm going to call.

I was over my head in debt due to medical bills and an auto accident. Quiet frankly I thought I would never be debt free. When I meet Minh I didn’t have much but not only was he willing to work with me but went above and beyond what I would have ever expected. Minh was very helpful with every step of the process of the bankruptcy and even help me to get my license back. Now after only 1 year after my bankruptcy, me and my significant-other are having a home built using my credit as well. I can’t say enough good things about the job Minh did for me so I highly recommend him if your looking for a lawyer that cares to represent you. THANKS AGAIN MINH!!!!

Excellent Personal Injury Lawyer
I was in a bad car accident, and hired Atty Wai to represent us. It was a hit and run and we were having trouble getting our insurance to pay. He did not rush for a quick settlement with the insurance company, but made sure we got medical care and physical therapy and were on the way to wholeness before settling. He was able to get all our bills reduced, the bills paid, plus extra for pain and suffering. He never rushed us, answered any phone call, kept us updated and was courteous and professional. We could not have asked for a better lawyer.

A Trustworthy Attorney - puts your needs FIRST!
Attorney Wai has the clients needs as first rate. Previously in a car accident we had a big name lawyer -- who settled for a measly few hundred dollars to finish the case quickly. Not Atty Wai! He worked with us to be sure we got the proper medical care to get well, not just get a settlement and end up disabled. I could hardly walk and since I didn't have health insurance was about to settle for being disabled but Atty Wai worked out for a physical therapist to see us until I got well and could work again! He got our car paid for, pain and suffering plus all the medical bills. Couldn't ask for a better attorney! God bless attorney Minh Wai!

Great Lawyer
My wife & I used Mihn for our bankruptcy. He is on top of his game, he walks you through every step of the way. On our court day he was on time, and very prepared. There were 2 other lawyers there. 1 was late, and his clients had to wait 3 extra hours to be seen. The other lawyer was not prepared (missing paper work, didn't have proper documents). The best bankruptcy lawyer around. I will and have referred him to family & friends. Thanks again Minh

Highly recommended
# User Rating: 5 out of 5 stars by Lisa 07/07/2010 Attorney Wai did a wonderful job on my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. He took the time to educate me and walk me through the whole process so that I was no longer worried about filing. He also made himself available anytime I had a question about my case. I especially liked the fact that I dealt with him directly. He filed my bankruptcy and got me discharged in 3 months without any problems or headaches. I would highly recommend him for anybody that needs to file for bankruptcy!
