Strategic Defense For College Students In Trouble With The Law
College students and young people can face lifelong consequences for one error in judgment. While the legal penalties associated with certain criminal charges may not seem to be very serious, a criminal conviction could limit your future professional and educational opportunities. If you, or your son or daughter, have been charged with any criminal offense, it is vital to have a lawyer on your side who can present the strongest possible defense.

Helping You Take The Necessary Steps To Protect Your Future
Depending on the facts of your case, there might be programs that can help you minimize the consequences of a criminal charge. For instance, certain first-time drug offenders may qualify for a conditional discharge. Under a conditional discharge, if the defendant successfully completes a probation program, the charges can be dismissed. In addition, people accused of some types of alcohol-related offenses may qualify for an Alcohol Education Program (AEP). Under this program, people who qualify can complete community service, alcohol testing and classes to have the charges dismissed.
Of course, we will not simply look for the simplest way to dispose of a charge. In many cases, there are strong defenses that could lead to a dismissal of the charges altogether. Whatever your situation involves, you can count on us to seek the best possible outcome.
