Crown Point Criminal Law  Attorney, Shane O'Donnell


A criminal charge or jail time can negatively impact the rest of your life. The Law Offices of Shane O’Donnell can provide you with the personalized attention your case needs and deserves.


Any criminal charge can cost you far more than court costs and fines. Today virtually anyone can gain access to the criminal records of others. Current or prospect employers, universities and schools, financial institutions, and landlords can all gain access to this information, which means a criminal conviction can have lifelong consequences for you and your family.


Also, for more serious criminal charges, significant jail or prison time is a very real possibility if you are not represented by a highly skilled criminal defense attorney.


It is important that you take immediate steps to retain the services of an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.


By getting the right legal representation, you will take the important steps necessary to avoid serving significant jail or prison time or what can be the de facto life sentence of having a criminal conviction that negatively impacts all aspects of your life for years to come.

Experience makes a difference. Our chief criminal attorney, Shane R. O’Donnell, began his career as a Lake County prosecutor and was a successful defense attorney after leaving the prosecutor’s office. He draws upon this experience to develop strong and effective defense strategies for our clients.


Attorney O’Donnell can think like a prosecutor, but act as a strong criminal defense attorney.


He will provide a skilled and aggressive defense to protect your rights against felony and misdemeanor charges such as:



Drug Offenses – dealing or possession of marijuana, cocaine or any other controlled substance


OWI/DUI/DWI – Operating While Intoxicated, drunk driving


Property Offenses - Theft, conversion, fraud, forgery, burglary


Sex Offenses – rape, sexual battery, child molesting


Violent Offenses – misdemeanor and felony battery, robbery, carjacking, confinement, and  murder




Suspended drivers license- restricted license, license cleanups


All Felony and Misdemeanor charges


The Law Offices of Shane O’Donnell can provide legal services for the expungement of a criminal record. When an expungement is granted, the person whose record is expunged may, for some purposes, treat the legal event as if it never happened.


 If your driving privileges have been suspended, we can help you obtain a hardship driving license that allows you to drive for certain purposes, usually for work or medical care.


It is very important for your criminal case that you do not make any statements to the police before you have consulted an attorney. Attorney O’Donnell can be there for you from the start of your case – from the initial bond hearing … to the arraignment … and through the trial, if necessary.


We work extremely hard to provide you with the experienced, knowledgeable, and dedicated representation you deserve to achieve the best possible solutions.

We pride ourselves on keeping you fully informed at every stage of your case.


While it is unrealistic to expect that all charges in every case can be reduced or dismissed, we work very hard in every case to make sure that your rights are protected and to ensure that we obtain the best possible outcome in your case.


We can help you get through this legal crisis … contact the Law Offices of Shane O’Donnell today at (219) 213-2254.
