College Student Misconduct and Disciplinary Hearings

College misconduct and disciplinary charges can have long-term financial, academic and employment repercussions. Our firm fights for students facing university suspensions or expulsions so that we can protect their future, reputation and investment.

The university disciplinary process varies widely and provides administrators with great discretion and power. Students need their own advocates to fight for them and to ensure that the process is fair. Our commitment to justice for students goes beyond the university level. We routinely file civil rights and Title IX actions against University’s and their administrators in federal court.

Criminal Defense for College Students

Our attorneys understand the terrifying, potentially permanent consequences that a university student faces when dealing with criminal charges. We know that for students, the stakes couldn’t be higher — freedom, a degree, careers, criminal records, student aid, and the sacrifices made by their parents. We also understand the desperation of a parent who wants to protect a child.

Fighting for a student is more than just showing up in court. We work closely with investigators, school administrators, therapists, and drug and alcohol counselors to fight for the best possible outcome for our client. Most of the students we work with have never been in trouble before and their families may have no experience with the criminal justice system. Penn State students have worked hard to gain admission to the University and their families have often made enormous sacrifices to finance their education.
