Representing High School And College Students

High school and college students face additional layers of consequences when charged with crimes. In addition to criminal penalties, a conviction can lead to disciplinary proceedings and punishments within a school or university, including even suspension or expulsion

A student's present and future educational opportunities may also be significantly limited by a criminal charge or conviction. An arrest or conviction can close doors to educational advancement and other career goals. It may even be more difficult to secure a student loan. These consequences could then, in turn, foreclose employment prospects down the road.
