College Student Criminal Defense Attorneys in Dayton, Ohio

A Strong Legal Ally for Students Facing Criminal Charges

College is a time of personal growth and exploration, but newfound freedom can spur a legal predicament. College students facing criminal charges need skilled legal representation to prevent ongoing consequences that result from one mistake. Get help from the experienced attorneys at StachlerHarmon in Dayton.

Trouble on Campus

No criminal charge is without ramifications. But for students, an arrest, on or off-campus, and the accompanying criminal charge carry serious implications that derail their plans.

Following an arrest, it is essential to get help from a competent lawyer right away to begin building your defense. Our firm regularly assists clients facing charges of:

  • Driving under the influence
  • Underage possession and consumption
  • Public intoxication
  • Possession of drugs or drug paraphernalia
  • Disorderly conduct

The long-term effects of a criminal conviction can damage your eligibility for financial aid and student housing, and your ability to find employment or a place to live after graduation. Depending on the charge, a conviction can prevent you from obtaining a professional license in certain fields.

Moving Forward After a Mistake

At StachlerHarmon, while we believe a youthful mistake should not jeopardize a person's entire future, our lawyers also hope students can learn from the experience.

For many students, a criminal charge in college is their first experience with the legal system, which can be overwhelming and stressful. During an initial consultation, we will explain the potential penalties, possible next steps, and a recommended course of action.

By taking the time to thoroughly explain each aspect of the charge and how the criminal justice system works, we allow our clients to make informed decisions that align with their goals.
