Deidra N. Haynes
Deidra N. Haynes graduated from Indiana University School of Law, also known as McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis, Indiana. She interned while in law school as a prosecutor, public defender, and state public defender defending those who were facing the death penalty.
Immediately after law school, she worked for Barnes & Thornburg, the largest law firm in the state of Indiana as an employment litigator defending large corporations. Attorney Haynes decided to pursue her passion for advocating for those without a voice. As a result, she now represents employees, the injured, the mentally ill, those accused of criminal offenses, and those experiencing difficult family law issues.
Her number one passion in life is to become a voice for the voiceless. As a one-time troubled youth herself, she understands that sometimes good people make bad decisions. Someone became her voice and guided her through the criminal legal system as a juvenile and young adult; therefore, she is determined to give back to her community with the same compassion that someone rendered to her.
Additionally, before Deidra became a powerhouse attorney, she was once a scared and timid young lady who had to hire an attorney to help her seek justice against a huge corporation that demoted and retaliated against her based on her gender. Attorney Haynes uses her past and real-life experiences to relate to her clients. Her passion for justice and compassion for the vulnerable and defenseless allows her to speak out on behalf of the voiceless.
