Helping People Throughout Indiana Overcome Legal Challenges

As a local Logansport lawyer with a statewide practice, attorney Matthew D. Barrett is committed to guiding individuals through difficult legal situations. From personal injury cases such as auto accidents or dog bites to criminal defense cases such as DUI or drug offenses, you can count on Matthew D. Barrett, P.C., to defend your rights, your interests and your future.

Recovering Compensation After An Accident

Previously, attorney Barrett worked as an insurance defense attorney. Today, being able to anticipate the other side's strategy and next move helps him recover the maximum amount of compensation for clients who have suffered injuries due to another party's negligence, including:

  • Car and semi-truck accidents
  • Wrongful death
  • Construction accidents
  • Accidents at schools and daycares
  • Dog bites and attacks

Our legal team works on a contingency fee basis for all personal injury and wrongful death cases. This means that we only receive a fee for our work if we successfully conclude your case by obtaining compensation. Unlike other law firms, you will not receive a bill simply for picking up the phone to ask a question. Instead, we are paid on a percentage basis on the total amount of compensation that we recover, and only at the end of your case. So no recovery, no fee, period.

Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum — Life Member

Attorney Barrett is certified as a lifetime member with both the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Established in 1993, these are among the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the United States. Membership is limited to attorneys who have won million and multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements, and fewer than 1 percent of U.S. lawyers are members.

This certification is a recognition of accomplishment and provides a national network of experienced colleagues for information, assistance and professional referral. Attorney Barrett is proud to be included in this esteemed group.

"I take pride in helping people, especially in cases that most people thought couldn't be won." — Attorney Matthew D. Barrett

Criminal Defense Attorney For Logansport, Kokomo And Northern Indiana

The negative consequences that follow a criminal conviction are numerous and far-reaching. If you are facing criminal charges, do not plead guilty. Contact our law firm for the aggressive and knowledgeable criminal defense you need during this uncertain time.

We have successfully represented clients charged with misdemeanors and felonies in both state and federal court, including:

  • Drug possession and trafficking
  • Drunk driving (DUI)
  • Domestic violence
  • Assault and battery
  • Sexual assault
  • Theft and shoplifting
  • Murder and homicide

Regardless of the charges you face, we work hard to hopefully win a dismissal or to obtain a reduction in charges and mitigate the consequences of a conviction.

Fighting To Protect And Uphold Your Rights

When it comes to winning criminal defense cases, experience matters. Every courthouse has its own way of doing things and, because we frequently work in many of the same courthouses, we've developed trusting relationships with judges, prosecutors, probation officers and court staff. Moreover, we know how things work in particular courtrooms and with particular prosecutor offices and have learned the most effective ways to get the job done.

Although we maintain a statewide criminal defense practice all across Indiana, we are regularly in the following places defending the rights of our clients: Logansport (Cass County); Peru (Miami County); Winamac (Pulaski County); Kokomo (Howard County); Monticello (White County); Rochester (Fulton County); Delphi (Carroll County); and Wabash (Wabash County).
