College Students

Student cases are unique

Whether you attend the University of Alabama, Shelton State University, or another West Alabama school, you need an attorney who understands the unique challenges you’re facing if you’ve been charged with a crime. In addition to the threat of a criminal record, your education and your future career job prospects are on the line.

Title IX allegations have serious consequences for students, up to and including expulsion from their university. You have the right to have an advisor to navigate the entire Title IX process, which is complicated and can take several months. I advise students at all Alabama public and private universities. 

I work with students to restore their student status and clear their records. Most importantly, we will get through this together.

For Parents

One of the most frightening calls a parent can receive from their child is a panicked call in the middle of the night from  jail – especially if you are many miles or even several states away. 

I can help. 

Most college students have never stepped foot in a courtroom. I can help your student every step of the way through the legal process, including working to get their charges lowered or dismissed if possible. I will also keep in close communication with them to make sure they never miss a court date or drug test if that is required from the court. 

Most importantly, I will fight to protect your student’s record by keeping it sealed, if eligible. 

If your student has been charged with any crime – misdemeanor or felony – contact me to discuss their case.
