Criminal Law

If you’ve been charged with a crime, you need immediate legal representation. It’s important to have someone on your side who will zealously defend you and who can navigate the complexities of the system. For 25+ years, Salzmann Law has worked many criminal defense cases defending our clients in Bloomington, IN. That said, most cases are not tried in a court or in front of a jury. Instead, they are negotiated to a plea after both sides consider the facts and law. We always work with your best interests at heart, and we will defend your rights inside and outside of the courtroom.

Areas of Practice


If you’ve been charged with homicide, whether that be murder, manslaughter, or wrongful death, it’s imperative you get legal representation immediately. As with many areas of law, there are layers and complexities to each definition. Allow us to help you navigate through these court proceedings.

Drug Crimes

Drug crimes can range from paraphernalia and possession to dealing, trafficking, and manufacturing. Each carries their own sentences from probation to jail time. Having any drug crime on your record could have severe consequences.

Sex Crimes

Sex crimes are considered serious offenses and can severely impact your life on many fronts. These crimes are aggressively tried, and a guilty verdict can destroy personal relationships and result in your registering as a sex offender, among other serious consequences.

We have represented clients against charges that include:

  • Rape
  • Child Molestation
  • Public Nudity
  • Sexual Assault
  • Solicitation
  • Prostitution
Criminal Mischief

Even small acts of property damage can result in criminal mischief charges. Depending on the extent of the damages, jail time can be on the table. We’ll work diligently on your behalf to prevent these acts from landing on your record.
