Garrett E. Lawton


Garrett concentrates his legal practice on real estate services, landlord-tenant relations, criminal expungement, craft beer and spirit services, and general litigation.

Garrett is a lifelong Hoosier and tireless supporter of Indiana, assisting members of the community with their various legal needs. Raised in Fishers, he graduated from Indiana University in Bloomington and earned his law degree at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law. After running his own law firm and then working for a small north side firm, he recently joined Thrasher Buschmann & Voelkel P.C. as an associate attorney.

Relying on his diverse background and experiences, Garrett approaches each legal challenge with a unique perspective. In an often reactive society he practices law proactively, counseling clients through their current issues and advising on their course for the future. He has represented clients on a broad spectrum of both civil and criminal matters.

Passionate about community advocacy and progress, Garrett serves on the board of the Broad Ripple Village Association where he works on various committees including Land Use and Economic Development. He also volunteers with the Indianapolis Bar Association, providing legal assistance at homeless shelters. In his free time, Garrett enjoys coaching cross country and track at Park Tudor, volunteering at the Broad Ripple Farmer’s Market, and supporting the Indiana Craft Alcohol industry.
