About Us
Threlkeld Stevenson is a trial litigation firm with a strong work ethic that provides quality representation delivered with experience, tenacity and efficiency at a reasonable rate. Our emphasis has always been, and continues to be, providing the highest quality of legal services to all our clients.

The firm's office, which is located in downtown Indianapolis, offers the unique opportunity to represent clients throughout the state of Indiana with timely access and quick responsiveness.

The firm represents large insurance companies in complex litigation as well as small corporations and individuals. We strive to strike a balance between the traditional one-to-one relationship of attorney and client and the demands of today's increasingly complex legal problems that often require the combined attention of several lawyers and legal staff. The size and composition of the firm affords clients personal service that is not always available with larger law firms.

The firm has in excess of 30 years experience representing clients in State and Federal Courts as well as the Indiana Court of Appeals and the Indiana Supreme Court.
