Is Your College Student Facing Criminal Charges?

For many students, college is a time of experimentation and pushing boundaries. But if lapses in judgment lead to criminal charges, the consequences can be devastating. A drunk driving or assault conviction has long-term consequences that may throw a college student's life completely off course.

If your college-aged son or daughter is facing criminal charges, contact John J. Balenovich Law Office, LC. I am John J. Balenovich. As a defense attorney and a parent, I know just how important it is to protect a promising college student's future.

I offer experienced legal counsel for parents and college students who have been accused of:

  • Drug possession or drug trafficking
  • DWI or DUI
  • Underage DUI
  • Possession of a fake ID
  • Rape and other sex crimes
  • Assault and battery
  • Vandalism

A criminal record can affect a college student's life for years. One mistake or accident of circumstances should not derail your child's prospects. Take every possible measure to prevent a criminal conviction from marring your child's record. John J. Balenovich Law Office, LC, is here to provide legal guidance through this difficult time.

Convictions Have Long-Lasting Effects On School And Careers

A criminal record can affect your child's graduate school placement, career opportunities and reputation. In addition to facing criminal penalties, your child may face repercussions from their college or university.

Many schools have their own disciplinary policies in place when students are charged with criminal activity. Depending on the charges and whether the student is convicted, this may include suspension or even expulsion. I can help prevent or mitigate punitive action from your son or daughter's school.
