We Defend College Students’ Futures

We represent students from many local colleges and universities with strategies to protect a student’s legal record. We handle a number of criminal arrests, including:

  • Sexual assault

One mistake should not have to scar your student’s future education, career or reputation.

We know the other Rochester-area lawyers, the judges and the educational systems of area colleges and universities. We can intervene as necessary with educational institutions as well as represent you in criminal courts to gain promising results for you.

Consequences If A Student Is Charged With A Crime

Getting arrested for a crime when you are young can not only put a mark on a record, but can also have campus consequences that affect the ability to complete a college degree. Depending on the charge, a defendant can encounter:

  • Academic suspension
  • Housing eviction
  • Financial aid ineligibility or revocation
  • Driver’s license suspension, which may affect a student’s transportation needs associated with school attendance and extracurricular participation
  • Diploma withheld

For more than 70 years, our law practice has been providing assertive, empathetic criminal defense. We want your college student to remain able to pursue a solid career with the education he or she deserves. Let us help protect your student from the effects of a conviction that may stay on record for life.
