A Passion For Family Law
As a family law attorney with over 25 years of experience, I am proud to have started my career at the Indianapolis Legal Aid Society. This not-for-profit organization provides free legal services to low-income families. It was my first job out of law school. I worked with family law issues and realized how much I enjoyed helping families navigate the legal system.
At the Law Office of Clarissa Finnell, I have represented countless clients in family law matters throughout the Indianapolis metro and surrounding areas. As a registered domestic relations mediator, Guardian Ad Litem, and parenting coordinator, I bring a unique perspective to each case I handle. I am passionate about helping families find viable solutions that have their best interests in mind and pursuing their legal goals.

One of my greatest strengths as a family law attorney is my ability to communicate with my clients. I understand that legal jargon can be confusing and intimidating, especially during an emotional time like divorce or separation. I pride myself on my ability to communicate effectively at all levels of sophistication and education. This skill allows me to provide each client personalized attention and guidance, regardless of their background.
In addition, I am an active member of a collaborative practice group, which allows me to work with other collaborative law attorneys and stay up to date on best practices. I take a compassionate, sympathetic approach to family law matters and always aim to minimize conflict and stress for my clients. I genuinely believe that a collaborative approach is often the best way to reach a successful resolution for all parties involved.
