Know and protect your rights.  Litigation can be defined as the process of resolving disputes by either answering or filing a complaint in the public court system.

Litigation in federal courts is governed by several rules. These rules include the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, Federal Rules of Civil Procedure,  Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, and Federal Rules of Evidence. Each court and the standing orders of judges may  or may not supplement these rules. 

If you are being investigated for or charged with a crime, Elhart Law Office is here to help. No matter which type of crime you are facing, a trusted attorney can stand by your side each step of the way, making certain you understand your rights and know what to anticipate throughout the legal process.

Over decades of practice in criminal law, Craig W. Elhart has developed effective courtroom and negotiation skills that can result in the best possible outcome of your case.

Clients facing allegations for different criminal offenses should retain representation from a skillful attorney who will try their best to passionately defend their rights and freedom. Lawyers can explain all of your options and may even manage to get your charges reduced.

If charges have been filed against you or you are under investigation, you must act quickly to preserve your rights and build your defense. 


No one enters into a marriage with the expectation that it will end. However, people and circumstances change over time, and a once-thriving marriage may find itself in turmoil. When this occurs, moving on and dissolving the marriage by filing for divorce may be the couple’s best option. However, filing for divorce should not be taken lightly; it can be a very stressful and emotionally draining experience for everyone involved. It is important that you don’t go through this experience alone, and that you have a skilled, compassionate attorney at your side.

Every divorce is different, and our experience allows us to cater our services to each client’s specific situation. Whether a couple mutually agrees to the terms of a divorce or are engaged in a fierce battle for their property and child custody rights, we can help. If you are contemplating filing for divorce or if your spouse has already filed for divorce, contact us to schedule a consultation.

Tribal Law

Native American law has two distinct areas of law:

1) Indian Law deals with the relationship between Native American tribes and the federal and/or state governments.

2) Tribal Law deals with the constitutions, codes, and cases of individual sovereign nation tribes.

Our law firm has experience in both types of Tribal Law.
