Trial Lawyers You Need When It Matters

KBM Trial Lawyers have been serving clients across Indiana and Chicagoland with legal issues related to criminal defense, post-conviction appeals, post-conviction relief and civil rights issues for over two decades.

Areas of Practice

Criminal Trial Defense

When charged with a crime, your freedom and liberty are at stake. Do not delay in beginning your defense. Our lawyers at KBM devote substantial portions of their practice to the defense of those that have been criminally charged. Our lawyers practice regularly in both Federal and State Courts and cover misdemeanor and felony charges. While the lawyers primarily practice in Northwest Indiana, KBM Trial Lawyers provide service all over the States of Indiana and Illinois.

Criminal Investigation

Being the suspect of a criminal investigation can be overwhelming. KBM Trial Lawyers can help. Do not wait until after you have been charged with a crime to get legal advice. KBM attorneys are licensed to practice in the states of Indiana and Illinois, as well as the Federal Courts of the Northern and Southern Districts of Indiana, the Northern District of Illinois, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court.

Post-Conviction Relief

If you have been convicted of a crime and have exhausted the appeal process, there are still ways we may be able to help.  KBM has experience in post-conviction relief (PCR) hearings, habeas corpus petitions, sentence modifications, and expungements.

Civil Rights Violations

If you were the victim of police brutality, discrimination, or have had other constitutionally protected rights violated, a KBM attorney may be able to help.We will represent your rights with your best interests in mind and carefully work to understand and advocate for the harm you have been caused. Other examples of situations where there may be civil rights issues include, gay rights, hate crimes, and other violations against human rights.


Because you have only one opportunity to petition for expungement or to seal an arrest, call our experienced expungement attorneys at KBM to help you navigate the complex process.

Personal Injury

Personal injury accidents can be life-changing. Our experienced KBM personal injury lawyers understand how complex your claim can be.  We will work with you to gather supporting evidence and present the necessary documentation to secure the compensation you are entitled to.
