Completely dedicated professional. Fantastic level of attention. Value far and away above what she charges, especially to the adoptive parent. My process was so easy with Tammy--and there is no way I could have bargained with DCS as she did. Highly recommend.

Tammy Minger really helped me through my first adoption which was very scary for me. She responded quickly to my questions and was very caring. I loved how she explained everything clearly and was very knowledgeable about the law. I would highly recommend her to any family going through the adoption process. Thank you Tammy Minger for all of your hard work! W.Y.

About Us

Tammy M. Minger graduated from Indiana University School of Law in 1988.  She was a Monroe County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney from 1988 until 1997, at which time she left the prosecutor's office to realize her goal of opening her own law office.  While a deputy prosecutor, Tammy prosecuted a wide range of cases, but her concentration was in the area of domestic violence.  Tammy recognized the negative impact that domestic violence had on children, and she was naturally drawn to Family Law as a means of helping families and children whose lives had been disrupted by abuse and neglect.  Among her awards and distinctions are:  the Be More Phenomenal Award from the Bloomington Volunteer Network for her work for Monroe County CASA as a board member and pro bono attorney; Certificate of Recognition from Middle Way House for her service to domestic violence victims; the U.S. Department of Justice Award for Public Service for her work as a deputy prosecutor; and Attorney of the Year from the Protective Order Project of Indiana University.  Tammy served as an adjunct professor for the Kelley School of Business in 1999, where she taught negotiations to graduate level business students.  Tammy owns Minger Law Office, concentrating in family law issues, and lives in Bloomington with her husband, Jerry, and her four children.
