    So during the fall of 2015 I decided it would be funny to write something off humor on an app called Yik Yak. IUPD didn't think it was funny and came and took my computer and other electronics. That day I emailed Mary and she replied very quickly. The next day I hired her to help me get my stuff back and help me get out of trouble. Whenever I emailed her she replied very quickly. At the end of the whole process I got my stuff back without any jail time or probation. Mary is a great lawyer and I would highly recommend if you're in trouble with IUPD. Also she is very fair in her pricing. I put her on retainer and when the whole process was over I got a lot of my money back.

    I have worked with Mary for two separate charges and she has exceeded my expectations each time. After two arrests, my record is still clean without charges due to Mary's help and expertise. She is a pleasure to work with and very trustworthy. I would recommend Mary to any friends in search for an attorney in Bloomington.

    What makes Mary Higdon a great attorney is her experience as a former prosecutor in my opinion. She has maintained a good, professional relationship with mostly everybody in the Monroe County Justice Building. This is important because it allows her to have more influence when negotiating plea bargains or anything afterwards. She's pretty good at finding a reasonable outcome based on which judge and prosecutor you have in your case, because she knows everybody at the table and knows how to work with them. My case dealt with a fairly high felony charge, but my conviction is now down to a single misdemeanor. With that said, I was very happy to have Mary as my defense counsel.

    I found her by googling. I was not sure how she was but after I consulted with her, I felt relieved so I hired her. She made a great deal with a prosecutor. So if you have a trouble with criminal, I highly recommend her.

    Ms. Higdon worked with the prosecutor to move a felony down to a misdemeanor and this has allowed me to carry on with my life. Her work was fast and professional and she does an excellent job keeping all parties in the loop. Would absolutely recommend hiring this attorney.

    I had previously highered a lawyer to assist me and he was unable to do so successfully. Mary was more than willing to assist me and was able to complete my request in a quick, professional, and successful manner. She was very helpful and her services were genuine and did not over charge. I am very thankful to have found and worked with Mary!

    I was arrested for OWI and spent 24 hours in the lovely Monroe County Correctional Center. When I was released, I was not expecting many attorneys to answer their phones at 10am on a Sunday. I spoke to two different lawyers, who both gave me the same responses and I got the impression that they were giving me the answers that I wanted to hear so that I would hire them. I then called Mary, who started out by giving me the worst case scenario which I appreciated; honesty was exactly what I was looking for. She then gave me her professional opinion as to what would likely happen to me, and as it turned out her initial thoughts were for the most part exactly how it played out.

    I had never been in any legal trouble before, and I had no idea what to expect when I met with her the next day. She was very kind and supportive and definitely helped to make me feel less awful about myself. I still feel terrible about what I did, but she helped me to understand that it was not the end of the world. I told her my story, she gave me a general idea of when things would happen, and also told me what I could do in the meantime.

    It took about 3 months before my day in court (which I understand is about average) and leading up to that she kept me informed whenever she had any interaction with the prosecutor. I bombarded her with emails full of questions throughout this time, which she always answered within a few hours.

    I spent hours on mycase.in.gov reading about cases similar to mine, and I truly believe that she got me the best possible outcome given my circumstances.

    Although I hope I never need her for any criminal defense again, I would absolutely call her first.

    Since most people here only want the basics, here goes: very professional, very responsive, very compassionate, and very affordable for those of us without trust funds.

    Mary Higdon served as council for a student regarding a misconduct case at Indian University. She responded immediately to inquiries, obtained the necessary information, kept us informed, and was essential in obtaining a successful outcome. I highly recommend her!
