Your Future Is Important. We Can Help Protect It.

It's no secret that police officers target college campuses, looking for anyone who might be knowingly or unknowingly breaking the law. However, even if a student was arrested and charged with a crime, it is still possible to build a strong defense against the charges.

At our law firm, we take the time to carefully review each case we take on. As we analyze the details of a situation, we will determine whether police broke any laws while arresting a student or searching his or her property. We will also consider alternative solutions, such as attending alcohol or drug prevention courses, instead of receiving more severe penalties.
