Mike W. Phelps


Mike Phelps has spent his entire legal career of 20 years working ONLY on PERSONAL INJURY and WRONGFUL DEATH cases. As a a young lawyer, Mike first represented insurance companies and corporations against the victims of car wrecks, semi wrecks, fall down cases, defective products and many other types of personal injury and wrongful death cases

In 2005, Mike “switched sides” after winning a case in a jury trial against a young man who had been severely burned by the negligence of a business. Sick to his stomach, Mike vowed at that moment to never, ever, represent an insurance company or corporation again, and he made it his personal crusade to seek justice for the people and to equal the playing field for the people against the big insurance companies and big corporations.

Since 2005, Mike has ONLY fought for the rights of victims of the negligence of others. Mike has tried jury trials in courts all across the state of Indiana, from Gary to Lawrenceburg, Fort Wayne to Evansville, South Bend to New Albany, Terre Haute to Richmond, and all points in between. Mike has also tried jury trials in Federal Courts across Indiana. 

Mike is a seasoned TRIAL LAWYER. While respectful to all, Mike has the reputation of being a “bulldog” in the court room. MIKE WILL NEVER BACK DOWN FROM ANY BIG INSURANCE COMPANY OR BIG CORPORATION. PERIOD. Mike is licensed to practice in all Indiana Courts, State and Federal.
