The firm is located in Crown Point, Indiana, and he works with clients from Lake County and other parts of the greater Gary metropolitan area. Mr. Stracci formed his firm in September 2019 after being with other area criminal defense firms.

The types of cases that he has worked on since expanding his practice to this area of the law have included truck and other types of motor vehicle crashes, dramshop liability, animal bites, and premises liability claims such as slips and falls.
