College Student Defense Top-Rated Legal Counsel

Miami College Student Defense Attorney

Need Representation For Your Criminal &/or Disciplinary Proceedings?

As a college student, any run in with law enforcement or authoritative personnel can be frightening. A criminal conviction or a negative transcript can have a devastating impact on a student. At the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Weiner, P.A., our defense lawyers in Miami work tirelessly towards the best possible outcome that will have a minimal impact on your future.

A Criminal Conviction May Have Serious Consequences For Your Future

More often than not, students from all over the world travel to Miami for spring break. Partaking in illegal activities at a party or driving while under the influence of alcohol are common things that occur during these trips and can result in an arrest and criminal charges. A criminal conviction has the potential to derail your education and future career plans. Moreover, students find that they are unable to complete their studies after serving time in jail. Convictions follow them into their professional lives, even if they do manage to finish school. We provide aggressive legal defense for college students facing misdemeanor and/or felony charges.

Disciplinary Proceedings Can Disrupt Your Education

A college student defense attorney can represent students in proceedings before university disciplinary committees. A suspension or expulsion can prevent you from finishing school, receiving scholarships and awards, and even attending graduate school.

We effectively defend students against all types of violations, including:

  • Fighting
  • Cheating
  • Participating in rallies or protests
  • Other forms of civil disobedience
  • Other school code violations

Students planning to attend certain graduate programs or pursue certain careers may be required to submit to a background check. In addition to defending clients in criminal and school proceedings, we help applicants and licensed professionals with background check disputes and professional licensure issues. We are committed to making sure our clients are treated fairly and that their rights are protected.
