Jay L. Clifford

Jay L. Clifford: Attorney with Law Office of Jay L. Clifford


After growing up in Ohio and attending The Ohio State University, my family and I have made Indianapolis our home for over 20 years. Upon graduation from law school at the Indiana University School of Law in Indianapolis, I began my legal career as an associate attorney with a large firm in Indianapolis doing corporate legal work. While this was a professionally rewarding position, I quickly realized that my passion and interest was in protecting the rights of individuals and fighting against “the system”. In 2000, I joined the Marion County Public Defender agency and defended those without the means to retain private counsel. While moving to private practice in 2002, I continue to represent those accused of criminal offenses and work to protect their rights.
