Defending College Students Accused of Crimes

College students charged with crimes need to take great care in order to protect their futures from the impact of a criminal conviction. A conviction for even a relatively minor crime, such as drug possession, can shut down a very promising career before it even gets off the ground. If you are a college student, or the parent of a college student, you want to choose an attorney with extensive criminal defense experience and knowledge of the opportunities available to young, first-time offenders.

Criminal Defense for University of Tennessee (UT) Students

We represent students of the University of Tennessee (UT), as well as students from other Southeastern Conference (SEC) schools, who were accused of crimes while visiting campus for a football game, basketball game or other sporting event.

We defend college students against all misdemeanors and felonies, including:

From underage drinking, public intoxication, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct charges stemming from conflicts at a sporting event to marijuana possession charges from being caught smoking pot in the dorms, we can defend against all crimes.

Opportunities for Success

Young, first-time offenders may be eligible for judicial diversion programs. We know about all of these programs, and we know the steps to take to get a college student into one of these programs as an alternative to a traditional conviction. These programs do not result in a criminal record, which is critical to protecting your future.

We also understand that, if you are from out of state, you may not want to come back for a court appearance. We may be able to handle it for you, depending on the crime you were charge with.
