Indianapolis Family Law Attorney

Helping couples divorce with dignity

Click to play videoThe Law Office of Melinda O'Dell strives for one thing — divorce with dignity.  Couples end their marriages for many reasons.  But, whatever the reason, divorce does not need to be highly contentious.  When a marriage ends, it is always best for the individuals (and the children) that issues be resolved civilly and respectfully.  Melinda O'Dell's focus is helping families find their way through a difficult and emotional life change.

At the Law Office of Melinda O'Dell, we recognize that divorce means change.  Sometimes that change is for the better, or that change can be unexpected and unpleasant.  We assist our clients through this time of change by defining their goals and then finding the tools to help them reach those goals.

Melinda O'Dell handles complex and difficult matters by combining her strong knowledge of family law and her devotion to a positive outcome for her clients and their families.  We help clients who have been turned away by other attorneys who believed that they did not have a case or that their case was too difficult to handle.  We understand the serious nature of your case, and we treat your issues with the privacy and attention they deserve.
