If you or a family member are a student and are the focus of a criminal investigation, it is important that you seek the assistance of an experienced attorney immediately. Many times, criminal investigations that are focused on students, whether they are in high school, college, university or trade school, may face other collateral consequences including suspension or expulsion or other disciplinary actions. These collateral consequences are time sensitive and require immediate attention.
Our attorneys have experience representing a broad range of students. Schools often have reporting requirements that must be strictly adhered to by the student. Failure to report the offense in a timely manner or respond to the school board’s correspondence regarding the alleged incident may result in additional repercussions on the student. Please contact us prior to contacting your respective school board but do not wait until the reporting deadline has lapsed.
