Defense Attorneys in Orlando Representing College Students

For many young adults, college is a time of self-discovery and trying to fit in with their new friends. When college students commit crimes, it is often because of these reasons. An innocent mistake can bring about serious consequences, both criminal and administrative. If you are a college student who has been charged with a crime, or if your son or daughter is a college student who was charged with a crime, you need a defense lawyer who understands the long-term implications of the current legal matter.

At Moses and Rooth Attorneys at Law, our Orlando criminal defense lawyers protect the rights and futures of college students throughout Central Florida. We provide comprehensive defense services — handling the criminal justice component along with the administrative component involving the college or university.

College Student Criminal Defense

When a college student becomes involved in a crime, it is often due to bad judgment. A young adult should not have to face a lifetime of consequences simply because of one bad judgment call. We fight for the rights of college students, taking on criminal charges that include:

College and University Discipline Code Violations

Generally, if a college or university becomes aware of a student’s criminal arrest, the institution will seek disciplinary action. The process is quite different from a criminal case. Our attorneys can prepare you for the administrative hearing. Additionally, we can speak with the dean or your academic adviser prior to the hearing. Often, when we are able to prepare you for the hearing and speak to the appropriate school figures, we are able to mitigate the consequences of the offense. We make every attempt to help college students remain enrolled in school. Whether you attend the University of Central Florida, University of Florida, Full Sail University or any other local community college, it is important to consult with an experienced attorney.
