  1. Criminal defense
    60%
    Criminal law is the area of law that applies any time you are charged by the State with an offense, as opposed to being sued by another person. As a former prosecutor, I can help you navigate the frightening and confusing waters of the criminal justice system to obtain the best possible outcome of your case.

    DUI/DWI/OWI are the same thing, driving a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. As a former prosecutor, I can help you navigate the frightening and confusing waters of the criminal justice system to obtain the best possible outcome of your case.

  3. Expungement

    If you were previously arrested or convicted of a crime, an expungement lawyer can help you remove those charges or seal your record from public view. This can be beneficial for both your professional and personal life, and a lawyer with experience i

Another word for attorney is counselor. As your counselor, my task is to guide, inform, and advise you, to insure that you are a full partner in resolving your legal issue or defense, and that all of your constitutional rights are protected.

 

I keep my caseload small enough to give each client and each case the full attention it, and you, deserve. Although I cannot assure you of the outcome of your case, I can promise you that your phone calls and emails will be answered promptly, that all of your questions will be answered, and that I will be with you every step of the way, to advise you and assist you through the often confusing and frightening legal system.

Effective, professional, and reassuring
I had been shut out of most proper jobs due to a felony for two DUIs within 5 years. I had to live abroad to earn a living but what's more, I was unable to work in fields that would give back to a community that has so often helped me in the past. Mr. Haskell represented me for my expungement. Not only did he succeed with my request for expungement, but he was supportive and encouraging throughout. I feel fortunate to have come across Mr. Haskell for my petition and if I ever know of anyone in a similar situation, I will most certainly recommend Guy.

Concerned Mother
Attorney Haskell was 100% professional. From the moment I contacted to him to the final result of my sons issue he was extremely thorough, reassuring, diligent and extremely patient. My son was dealing with a two year old incident that needed immediate attention. Attorney Haskell was quickly brought up to speed and he immediately took action. He was quick to return phone calls, emails, all with a kind and professional manner. I am grateful to have put my sons legal issue in his hands.

Great “Guy”
Guy was so very helpful when we found ourselves on the wrong side of the law. He was able to help us out quickly and avoid ever going into the courtroom. I would recommend Guy if you ever find yourself in any sort of legal trouble .

Great Attorney
We hired Guy to handle a DUI. He was very familiar with the proceedings and was able to negotiate a very fair plea agreement. We were able to handle all but the hearing itself remotely, and the hearing went smoothly as Guy was there guiding us every step of the way. Guy has a good relationship with the officers of the court as witnessed during our hearing. We highly recommend Guy Haskell as an attorney.

Superior representation !!
Our family had the need for an attorney that could handle multiple cases in multiple counties . Mr. Haskell took on our situation without hesitation and handled everything with the utmost care and attention. He exemplified , through the process, a high level of knowledge and experience and a communication style that not only put us at ease but showed his commitment to his client. I would highly recommend Mr. Haskell for your legal needs .

A complete class act!
I had an old criminal charge that had been haunting me for four years. After speaking with multiple attorneys, I retained Guy Haskell. This guy went so above and beyond for not only myself, but for my family. His expertise set aside, he also is just a genuinely great person. Communicating with him made me feel so much better about the process, which could have easily ended in me doing jail time. But, I trusted in his strategy and did what he asked of me. The result? Today, I walked out of court a free man. Furthermore, I feel like I walked out with an attorney that I now consider a friend. I can not recommend him enough.

Peace of mind
My underaged son was involved in a drinking and driving incident over the weekend and was taken to a juvenile detention center where I was unable to see him. Guy answered the phone on a Sunday and immediately got to work for us. He was able to get us a detention hearing quickly and got our son released. My son made a stupid mistake but Guy helped us show that our son was an exemplary student and that what had happened was an anomaly unlikely to ever happen again. We were able to get the case dismissed! I hope to never need his services again but if I did I wouldn’t wait a second to call him. He’s exactly the kind of lawyer you need for a situation like the one we had.

This is your “guy”
I was arrested for an OWI on a Friday night, and Guy was the first lawyer I contacted who actually answered his phone…on a Saturday! Guy is personable, helpful, reliable, and most of all dependable! He was efficient and thorough when working with a Sheriff who has a hard on to arrest people however he can. Guy made sure I was always comfortable, well informed on what was going on at all times, readily available, and always explained things to make sure I understood 100%. I highly recommend Guy, but hope to never have to use him again!

One of Bloomington's Best!
Guy Haskell was great from start to finish. He is knowledgeable about the process and doesn't cost you an arm or a leg. A decent human being and an equally great lawyer.

I was nearing the end of my degree, and had a hard time finding an internship for my addictions degree due to a drinking and driving related charge. I explained to Guy that I was a veteran of the Army and what steps I had taken to get where I was. Guy Haskell saw what was going on in my case and volunteered to represent me because he wanted to help a veteran by doing something, not just expressing his gratitude for my service in Iraq. Guy Haskell is a great attorney, but more importantly, he is a better person.

Absolutely the best - experienced w/positive results
Best attorney ever! He personally answered our frantic call the day after thanksgiving for help with a relative’s DUI. He is a former prosecutor, so he knows how the system works. He was also very forthright and kind during all meetings/discussions. VERY happy with all the results. Worth every penny.

Guy Haskell-DUI
I discovered Guy after my first encounter with the legal system. I was a graduate student at the time and looking for a local attorney to defend me in an OWI/DUI case. What first attracted me to Guy was his professional and very helpful website and then our initial phone consultation. Not only was he not dismissive or short with his responses like other attorneys I had contacted but what was important for me was that he was willing to work with me financially and negotiate the upfront price. As a graduate student, it would’ve been almost impossible for me make those financial demands without these arrangements. Throughout the process Guy was easy to get in contact with, showed genuine interest in my personal/school life which is why I was in the community, and very insightful on Indiana laws as well as the laws from my oeemannent resident. The fact that he was personable and funny only made me feel more comfortable and better about the not so good situation I was in. In the end, Guy was able to settle in court with everything he promised me plus more.

Excellent, Extremely knowledgeable, Compassionate!
Mr. Haskell was helpful from the very first minute I spoke with him on the phone. He knew exactly what to do for my situation and extended contact names to me to help me improve my situation immediately. He is very experienced in the technical but also a kind and compassionate person who I never felt judged me in any way. I was treated as a person who needed help; not a case number. He found solutions and walked me through everything. Mr. Haskell is an attorney I would hire without hesitation and trust you have made an excellent choice!
