As a college student, you may encounter legal charges such as:

  • Possession of a controlled substance
  • Possession of marijuana
  • Possession of dangerous drugs
  • DWI
  • Sexual assault
  • A&M Disciplinary Hearings
  • Other serious crimes

The Bryan / College Station area has approximately 55,000 college students attending either Blinn College or Texas A&M University. Each year, hundreds of students are arrested and charged with crimes ranging from possession of marijuana to intoxication manslaughter. Being arrested and convicted of even a minor misdemeanor offense can have devastating consequences to a young person's future. Even deferred adjudication, in which a person is placed on probation but not convicted, remains on a person's record and can be found in simple searches by prospective employers.

Strong Defense to Protect Your Future

Involvement in the criminal justice system can have other collateral consequences that can do much damage. Conviction of certain drug offenses while receiving financial aid can result in the denial of future financial aid. Conviction of DWI or possession of marijuana can result in the suspension of a student's driver's license. Some offenses, if charged, can result in a student being expelled from school, even if the charges have not been resolved. Because so much is riding on how a case can turn out, our team spares no effort to thoroughly investigate each case, research every credible legal issue, and effectively advocate for the most favorable result.
