Tara Rabiola

Tara has been working solely in the area of family law since she was in law school.  She assisted several family law attorneys with many types of cases while attending law school.  She found herself in the courtroom representing clients on her own very early in her career and has been doing so ever since.  After practicing with a firm for a time, Tara opened her own firm in 2013 and has continued to devote her practice exclusively to family law ever since.

 

She is able to bring both personal and professional experience to her cases and uses these experiences to help her clients navigate many different family-related issues.  She knows no case is the same and no client is the same and she enjoys working through each case to find the best solution for each client.

 

Tara has spent her entire life in Indiana, growing up in northern Indiana, attending college in Bloomington and law school in Indianapolis.  She currently resides in Indianapolis with her two sons and their two cats.  She enjoys running, attending concerts, travelling and spending time with her boys.
