“I highly recommend John Razumich to represent you in your time of need! He is trustworthy, responsive, knowledgeable, and kept me informed at all times. His professionalism is high level and always made me feel, as if i was his only client. I never once felt like i could not get in contact with him. John was either readily available, or was able to return my phone calls in 24 hours. He is a lawyer who cares about his clients more than about the business. I’m grateful for him helping get my life back in order.”
“Mr. Razumich has been a really good lawyer to work with.

Understanding the Criminal Justice System
Battery is defined in Indiana as knowingly or intentionally touching another person in a rude, insolent, or angry manner. Sorting out battery charges in court can be complicated – no matter the severity or circumstances.
By its nature, battery is often highly emotional. Once someone has been arrested and charged, the other party cannot simply call the prosecutor’s office to have the charges dropped. It’s up to the prosecutor. Your case can still go to trial, and you’ll still likely need the services of an experienced battery attorney.
For these reasons, people who set up a defense around the idea that the victim will not appear in court face a significant risk of a guilty verdict and potential jail time.
Battery is a serious charge. If you or someone you know has been arrested for assault and battery, you can help by immediately securing an attorney to assist with the defense. Witnesses will likely need to be interviewed. If the victim is a friend or family member, you’ll want clarifications of previous statements, to lessen the impact of police testimony. We can help.
