The DeBrota Law Firm LLC

Our Philosophy

Amy Ficklin DeBrota, lawyer, wife and mother of two, established The DeBrota Law Firm LLC in 2006 with the philosophy that the concepts of quality legal work and quality of life are not mutually exclusive.  The firm uses the latest technology in order to operate a law practice that is primarily internet based and nearly "paperless."  This allows us to work flexible schedules from a variety of locations.  This translates into a more enjoyable professional and personal experience for us and better legal and mediation services for our clients.  Ms. DeBrota’s practice focuses on representing individuals, multiple employees and small to medium sized businesses in litigation, providing neutral employment dispute mediation services and advising companies on how to improve their human resources policies and procedures in order to reduce the likelihood of employment related litigation.  The firm operates a statewide practice across Indiana.

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
