About Dawn

Learn Dawn’s areas of practice.

I have been a licensed Indiana Attorney for over 33 years.  I was employed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as an FBI Special Agent in the mid-1980s and I received an incentive award and letter of commendation from former Director of the FBI William Webster.  I was a Felony Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for over 10 1/2 years.  My criminal defense experience includes being a Public Defender and a private criminal defense attorney.  My state level jury trials include murder for hire, attempted murder, armed robbery, burglary, dealing in narcotics, child molesting, theft, forgery and habitual offender. My law practice is concentrated in divorce, family law, wills and criminal defense.
