Attorney Profile

jay clifford


After growing up in Ohio and attending The Ohio State University, my family and I have made Indianapolis our home for over 20 years.  Upon graduation from law school at the Indiana University School of Law in Indianapolis, I began my legal career as an associate attorney with a large firm in Indianapolis doing corporate legal work.  While this was a professionally rewarding position, I quickly realized that my passion and interest was in protecting the rights of individuals and fighting against “the system”.  In 2000, I joined the Marion County Public Defender agency and defended those without the means to retain private counsel. While moving to private practice in 2002, I continue to represent those accused of criminal offenses and work to protect their rights.
