Attorney Profile

Focusing his practice exclusively on criminal defense law, J.P. Roman-Lagunas is the founder of what is now known as Roman-Lagunas & Wheeler, LLC. Located in Indianapolis, Indiana, he represents clients throughout Marion, Hamilton, Johnson and Hendricks counties who have been charged by the state with misdemeanor or felony offenses. Mr. Roman-Lagunas has experience with matters including driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, drug possession and trafficking, violent crimes such as homicide and assault and battery, weapons violations, burglary, public intoxication, domestic violence, furnishing alcohol to minors, and speeding and other traffic violations. He has been able to obtain not guilty verdicts on numerous occasions, and he often conducts plea bargaining negotiations with the prosecution when the evidence against his clients is strong so that the potential penalties can be lessened.

Mr. Roman-Lagunas majored in international relations, communications and Spanish as an undergraduate. He then enrolled at the Valparaiso University Law School and was awarded his Juris Doctor in 2009. While there, Mr. Roman-Lagunas interned at a prominent northwest Indiana law firm. After graduation, he joined the Marion County Public Defender Agency, where he spent more than four years representing indigent clients, many of whom had been accused of serious felonies.

Mr. Roman-Lagunas left public service to form the predecessor to his current firm in February 2014. He is admitted to practice before all Indiana state courts as well as before the U.S. District Courts for the Northern and Southern Districts of Indiana. Mr. Roman-Lagunas has also collaborated with legislators and fellow criminal defense attorneys to revise and revamp Title 35 of the Indiana Code. His professional memberships include the Indianapolis Bar Association.
