Allison Martinez Wheeler

About

Allison Martinez Wheeler devotes her legal practice to family law. She deals exclusively in the areas of divorce, military divorce, paternity, guardianships, and cases involving the Indiana Department of Child Services.  Allison also assists clients with their estate planning needs whether it is drafting a basic will or creating a complex trust instrument.

The child of an Army veteran, Allison learned firsthand the nuances of military life. She was born in Germany and moved 11 times before her family settled into Elizabethtown, Kentucky.  Her experiences coupled with her empathy for military families keep her grounded while working with service members and spouses in military divorce cases.

Prior to joining the Roman Lagunas team in 2014, Allison worked with a family law firm in Fishers.  She received training early in her career as a volunteer with the Guardian ad Litem Program of Hamilton County.  This experience fueled Allison’s passion to work with broken families.  She has learned that every issue in family law is a sensitive one, and dealing with the legal process is not only overwhelming, but emotionally tolling for all.

Allison lives in Fishers with her husband, Evan, and their two boxers, Yogi Bear and Buster Blue.
