The Law Office of Ross G. Thomas is located at 3601 N. Pennsylvania St. in Indianapolis, Indiana. While some law firms practice in many areas of the law, I focus my practice entirely on major felony criminal defense cases. As a criminal defense lawyer, I have represented clients in State and Federal Courts all over Indiana facing all types of serious criminal felony charges, including violent crimes such as murder, manslaughter, battery, robbery, intimidation and weapons cases; sex crimes such as sexual battery, rape, sexual misconduct with a minor, child exploitation and pornography cases and accusations of child molestation; property crimes such as forgery, theft, burglary or receiving stolen property. I also handle criminal appeals in both State and Federal cases, as well as Post-Conviction Relief (PCR) and sentence modifications. A large part of my practice is devoted to defending persons charged with drug and narcotics offenses, including trafficking and conspiracy cases involving cocaine, heroin, LSD, ecstasy or other drugs; cases alleging the manufacturing of methamphetamine and meth labs and possession cases of all sizes.
I am a member of the NORML Legal Committee and as such I am committed to defending marijuana cases of all kinds, from large trafficking and cultivation cases, to felony charges of dealing in marijuana to misdemeanor cases for possession of marijuana. The Law Office of Ross G. Thomas also handles civil and criminal forfeiture cases which can sometimes accompany more serious drug charges. As a criminal defense lawyer, I believe that every person charged with a criminal offense deserves to be treated fairly under the law. The Bill of Rights protects all of us- no one loses those basic rights because he or she is suspected or has been accused of a crime. I will fight to protect your rights against illegal searches, improper arrests, profiling and other questionable traffic stops and detentions and other violations of your Constitutional Rights. I believe that everyone deserves to be considered innocent until proven guilty, that everyone is entitled to a fair trial and that everyone deserves to have his or her Constitutional Rights vigorously protected. I stand ready to challenge traffic stops, automobile searches, and searches of a person's home by police, with or without a search warrant when those actions violate the Constitutional rights we all hold. I will fight against any use of police power which I believe has overstepped a defendant's Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable search and seizure or the other basic rights that protect us all as Americans. If you or your loved one is arrested and charged with a crime, you need the help of an experienced and aggressive criminal defense lawyer to speak up for you and defend your rights.
