About Karen Wyle

I am an appellate attorney with over 36 years' experience. I graduated cum laude from Harvard Law School in 1980. I primarily practice in the Indiana Court of Appeals and Indiana Supreme Court, but am a member of the Ninth Circuit and U.S. Supreme Court bars. I am also an inactive member of the California bar. I am located near Bloomington in Monroe County, Indiana, but handle appeals throughout Indiana. I have also appeared pro hac vice in various other states. I handle both civil and criminal appeals, although the bulk of my practice involves civil appeals. Those appeals may involve contracts, torts, family law, real estate disputes, municipal liability, etc. Since writing an amicus brief in the case of Troxel v. Granville, 530 U.S. 57 (2000), I have become well acquainted with the constitutional, statutory and public policy issues raised by grandparent visitation disputes.
