Criminal Defense

At Starr Austen & Miller LLP, we are proud to offer quality representation and aggressive defense for our clients throughout Northcentral Indiana. Led by former deputy prosecutor Mark Fryman, our criminal defense attorneys are equipped to handle all types of criminal charges, including those that may seem minor. No matter the charge – felony or misdemeanor – your case is important to us and we are dedicated to protect your future.

We understand that we are not only fighting for your rights, but also for your family, job, and reputation. That is why we are committed to helping you understand the charges against you, the possible penalties and chances of conviction, the criminal process, and how to build a strong defense. We dig deep for evidence that can be used to exonerate you or have the charges against you reduced. We conduct research outside the realm of criminal law that can be used in your defense. We investigate your case to find flaws in the state’s theories, identify witnesses (including experts) to testify on your behalf, and do everything we can to achieve the best possible outcome.


Our criminal defense lawyers also believe in accessibility and communication, meaning that every client correspondence is returned promptly. We find that close interaction with our clients is pivotal to achieving a successful result. Our clients are the best resource for understanding the key facts of the case, which is why we prefer working together with our clients as we cooperatively build the best defense possible.


When working with Starr Austen & Miller LLP, you will always have a strong, experienced advocate on your side. If you are charged with a crime or believe you are under investigation, your freedom is at risk. Call us today to learn how we can help you.


Types of criminal charges we defend against include:

  • Murder
  • Rape
  • Sexual Assault
  • Assault & Battery
  • Robbery
  • Theft
  • Drug
  • Alcohol / DUI
  • Traffic
  • Weapons
  • Plus many more


Our firm is also experienced at obtaining expungements for our clients. Expungement is a process by which those who have been arrested and/or convicted can hide arrests or convictions from public view, and in some cases, get them completely erased from their criminal record. The new Indiana expungement law is complex and requires the skills and experience of an expungement attorney. The criminal defense attorneys at Starr Austen & Miller LLP have been abreast of this new area of the law from the beginning. Our attorneys understand how to get relief from your past mistakes and how to help you put your criminal record behind you.
