Eric is a top notch attorney that was able to resolve a long list of issues that my company inherited from my previous corporate attorneys. He is extremely sharp and knowledgeable in all aspects of corporate and taxation law. We had several complex incorporation issues, and Eric was able to come up with sound solutions to each and every problem. We also utilized his knowledge to perform diligence on contracts that were drafted by our real estate attorneys, and his comments were tremendously valuable. Eric’s services are worth every penny. We look forward to continue leveraging his knowledge in our future business endeavors.

Dave helped me during a very stressful time in my life in which my two young children and I were about to be evicted from my apartment. He contacted the landlord’s attorney and successfully delayed the eviction until I could get the money together to bring the rent current. He is well versed in bankruptcy laws. He is expeditious about getting things done and was responsive to my questions. What I like most about Dave, his fees are affordable and will accept payments. I have referred others to him. I would highly recommend him

You are not just money; you are family! At The Welke Law Firm, we offer state and federal pre-trial and trial assistance, Indiana rule 1 post-conviction relief assistance, federal habeas corpus assistance, as well as state and federal appellate court assistance at an affordable cost to our clients and their families. We also specialize in bankruptcy as well as family law litigation. In addition, payment plans can be arranged for some of our services. For any criminal law matter, we require a one-time retainer to meet with a client at the facility that he or she is incarcerated. At that time, we discuss your case and options with you before we proceed any further. If you do not have a case, we will tell you of that fact, in an open and forthright manner. Fees have been kept low. Phone calls are returned to your family members. We pride ourselves on answering all correspondence from you as soon as reasonably possible. Who are we? Brent Welke has been an attorney since 1974, and is a minister with a M.Div. from Regent University. Brent recently came out of retirement to found The Welke Law Firm, after he realized a profound need existed for a street law firm based upon Christian principles to assist the men and women who are the unwelcome guests of the Indiana Department of Correction. Brent has been repulsed by what he has heard from incarcerated men and women, in relation to their treatment by their attorneys, and how their family members have been likewise treated with disdain. Therefore, Brent has dedicated The Welke Law Firm to addressing the legal needs of the incarcerated, while treating those men and women, including their family members, by the principle of the golden rule. Joseph G. Everroad, B.S.L., J.D., is a certified criminal law paralegal. Before his pro-se litigated PC-R matter resulted in a reduced sentence, Joseph faced the same plight as your incarcerated loved one currently does, by serving over two-decades of confinement with the Indiana Department of Correction for a crime he did not commit. He wisely utilized his time during his incarceration by earning five college degrees, including a very rare B.S.L. degree concentrated in criminal law. Joseph's resume as a long-time certified criminal law paralegal includes numerous state and federal appellate court successes, many of which have set precedent, and he has been twice honored as paralegal of the year for his work, assisting various criminal defense attorneys throughout the United States. What Joseph considers his greatest accomplishment to date resulted in an innocent man being released from Alabama's death row. Of even greater significance, Joseph has dedicated his life to assisting the men and women who are facing the same plight as he once did, while honoring the promises that he had made to his legal mentor, Dan Toomey, before his untimely passing from cancer.

About

David was admitted to practice law throughout the state of Indiana in 1998. As a general practice lawyer, he has experience in both criminal and civil law. David practiced law for over 14 years and built a successful private practice before serving as a judicial officer in Marion County, Indiana for 3.5 years. As a judicial officer, David was assigned to the Arrestee Processing Center (APC) and major felony drug court where he focused his efforts on problem solving and reducing recidivism through offender education efforts. Returning to private practice in October, 2016, David expects to incorporate the lessons he learned from the judiciary in assessing the strengths and weaknesses of his client’s cases. David has major felony trial experience and appellate advocacy experience. While many lawyers will spend an entire career and never have the opportunity to argue before the Indiana Supreme Court, David has done so three (3) times. Those decisions have helped shape Indiana law in the areas of Operating a Vehicle while Intoxicated and Habitual Traffic Violator offenses. In 2013, David retired as a field grade officer in the U.S. Army Reserves after serving for 25 years. Originally enlisting as a private out of high school in 1988 David was later commissioned through ROTC as a Second Lieutenant in the Military Police and completed the U.S. Army’s Airborne school. David served as a commander of the 384th MP HHC in Fort Wayne, IN, before transferring to the Judge Advocates General (JAG) Corps in 2000 where he served the remainder of his Army career as a military lawyer. In 2003, David deployed to Iraq as a JAG officer with the 800th Military Police Battalion in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He was assigned to the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) in the Iraqi Ministry of Justice where he served as the “ombudsman” for juvenile and female detainees. David earned the Bronze Start during his deployment for a variety of accomplishments including 1) obtaining a confession from an Iraqi detainee concerning placement of over 500 anti-tank and personnel mines, 2) successfully negotiating the peaceful displacement of over 1500 squatters from Iraqi government lands, 3) exhibiting the proper care and control over Iraqi detainees and 4) organizing charitable events to better the Iraqi people. Despite being in the middle of a war zone, David made international news when he established an Arabic library in the Al-Karhk Juvenile detention facility and held a charitable event called “Operation Touchdown” in which two Baghdad orphanages were introduced to the sport of American Football with the assistance of the Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints franchises. David later renewed the Operation Touchdown theme in 2006 and 2010 raising money for the United Services Organization (USO) and Wounded Warrior Project, respectively. David is also an adjunct professor at IUPUI where he teaches “Substantive Criminal Law” for the School of Public and Environmental Affairs. Additionally, David has presented classes to fellow members of the Indiana bar and judges on the “Military Aspects of Divorce in Indiana” and the “Servicemember’s Civil Relief Act”. In the military, David instructed multiple military units on topics such as “Federal Ethics”, “Code of Conduct”, “Law of War”, “Rules of Engagement” and “General Orders in a Combat Theater”. Although born and raised in Michigan, David has lived in the Indianapolis area since 1994. He graduated with an undergraduate degree in Criminal Justice with minors in Political Science and Military Science from Western Michigan University in 1992. After completing his initial military obligations, David moved to Indianapolis to obtain his law degree at Indiana University – McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis, Indiana. David graduated from law school in 1998 and was admitted to the Indiana State Bar after passing the Bar Exam that same year.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does an immigration attorney do?

Immigration lawyers help their clients through all phases of the immigration process. Experts on immigration law, they are legally qualified to represent U.S. citizens, permanent residents or undocumented immigrants. Immigration lawyers also provide assistance to visitors here on student, work or travel visas, and can represent clients who may have an expired visa or who have overstayed their visa.

You can hire an immigration lawyer to assist you with petitioning for renewing a permanent resident or green card, navigating the naturalization process, submitting an employee-based petition for a work visa, filing a petition for a family member, or representing you or a loved one who is facing detention or deportation, as well as replacing, extending or changing a current visa, green card or work permit. The immigration process is highly complex, with multiple hearings, paperwork and requirements. Hiring a legal expert to represent you can help you make your best effort in the process. When researching immigration lawyers, it is very important to verify their qualifications and find a reputable attorney. Read reviews and verify that the immigration lawyer is licensed by your state before paying any fees.

What is a personal injury lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer fights on your behalf if you’ve been injured physically, psychologically, economically or in reputation. This injury may be the result of neglect or malicious intent of another person, or it could be at the hands of a business, government or other entity. Personal injury lawyers specialize in tort law, which is the law of civil wrongs like car accidents, company wrongdoing, unlawful imprisonment and more.

To become qualified to be a personal injury lawyer in the United States, a person must earn a bachelor’s degree, followed by a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from a law school. Most states then require the person to pass the bar exam to become licensed to practice law. Unlike many attorneys who require a retainer, personal injury lawyers often work on contingency fees. This means that in lieu of payment upfront, they receive an agreed-upon percentage of the settlement in case of a win.

What should you look for in a personal injury lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer will advocate for your legal rights if you’ve been hurt in an accident at work or in daily life, have suffered from medical malpractice, or are struggling to have your insurance carrier cover your needs. It may be helpful to talk with two or three lawyers before selecting one. When looking for a personal injury lawyer, research their reviews and make sure former clients have had good experiences with them. Next, make sure the personal injury lawyer has experience and proven success winning cases similar to yours. Confirm that the lawyer is licensed to provide services in your state. When you find a qualified personal injury lawyer with whom you want to work, freely discuss payment and fees before any work begins. Most lawyers offer a free consultation to learn what your case is about and explain their rates. Personal injury attorneys typically receive a percentage of your settlement (called a contingency fee), so they are paid after the trial or case is complete. Keep in mind that some attorneys have fees that you must pay even if you don’t win your trial. It’s important to understand these details before work begins so you don’t have any unhappy surprises later. Lastly, it’s wise to choose a personal injury lawyer that you have confidence in and with whom you can communicate openly and honestly.

How do you find a good immigration lawyer?

Research is key to finding a good immigration lawyer. The immigration process can be overwhelming and complex, so a trustworthy advocate is critical. When you have identified several eligible candidates, verify their immigration law license to protect yourself and your finances. Once you have a set of licensed immigration lawyers in mind, choose one based on these considerations:

  • Mutual respect: You want an immigration lawyer who treats you and your family with kindness and consideration. You’ll do the same for them.
  • Availability: Before hiring, note if they have responded promptly to your emails and calls. You don’t want to hire someone you have to chase around.
  • Proven success: Read former client reviews and research their success rate with cases similar to yours.
  • Transparent rates: Ask directly about what their rates are, how they bill, and what they estimate your legal fees will be. Ask if they will sign a fee agreement, and get receipts for all fees paid.
  • Verify who will handle your case: Sometimes junior lawyers work on firm cases. This is okay, as long as you have discussed it and are comfortable with it. When junior lawyers or paralegals are working on your case, ask if the hourly rate is lower.
  • Be wary of anyone who promises you specific results: No case is certain, and the immigration lawyer should be honest about what you can expect.

How much does an immigration lawyer cost?

Immigration lawyers are experts in the nuances of the highly complex United States immigration system. They help clients of all backgrounds petition for immigration status and become U.S. citizens, and can represent clients who are facing deportation or detention. Nationally, the cost people pay for immigration lawyers averages $500-$1,010. The services you need will have a huge effect on your costs. For routines cases, such as applying for a travel visa, an immigration lawyer may be able to confidently quote you a set price, while more open-ended cases may be billed at an hourly rate of $200-$500, or more, depending on the reputation and experience of the firm and lawyer. Before hiring an immigration lawyer, ask what their plan for your case is and what expected costs may be. Many immigration lawyers work from retainers, and request a set amount of money upfront from which to work. For example, a lawyer who charges $300 per hour may estimate $4,000 for a standard family-based immigration case, the common process in which a U.S. citizen petitions for permanent residency for their spouse, fiancee or family members.
