Nashville Campus Crimes Attorney Protecting The Future Of College Students

College students who find themselves in trouble with campus police or law enforcement in their local college communities may face possible expulsion from school, in addition to serious criminal penalties. A conviction for a misdemeanor or felony offense can have a very negative impact on their futures. What may seem like a minor and unimportant charge for illegal drug use or underage drinking could turn out to have serious consequences when applying for graduate school or looking for a job.

Was Your Child Arrested While Away At College? Get Local Legal Counsel.

The criminal court process differs slightly from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. It makes sense to have a local legal defense counsel who understands the system and expectations of local prosecutors. As a criminal defense lawyer with more than 30 years of experience, including eight years as a public defender, I have helped protect college students faced with legal challenges to their futures. If you are the parent of a student at a university or college in Tennessee or western Kentucky, call me to discuss getting the legal help your son or daughter needs.

I will also work with the local university or college officials to avoid expulsion from school if it is being considered as a disciplinary measure.
