MERRILLVILLE CRIMINAL DEFENSE AND TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS LAWYERS CONTINUING A LEGACY OF SERVICE

Also serving Gary and throughout Lake County and Porter County, IN

For more than 30 years, the attorneys at our firm have been rooted in the service of the people of Indiana. Firm founder Garry Weiss (1954–2008) believed that all people, regardless of the circumstances of their lives, should be offered respect and treated with dignity. It was something everyone noticed about how he treated his clients and neighbors. And it’s a legacy we’re proud to continue at the Law Office of Weiss, Schmidgall and Hires, P.C.

Our attorneys care. We know that the outcome of your case can have a serious impact on your life and future. So we do what needs to be done to keep the constant stress out of your life while we work to get your case its best outcome.
