Legal Assistance for College Students

College is often a fun and memorable time where you learn how to learn and become engulfed in your own environment.  For the most part, you are on you own to make decisions.  Free will is what makes living in this country so great. However, when we are young, sometimes our judgement is more easily influenced by our environment.  Legal troubles can stay with you all of your life if they are not dealt with in a thorough and timely manner.  Some of the most common legal issues college students face include:

  • public intoxication
  • possession of marijuana
  • underage drinking
  • false identification (fake ID)
  • speeding, stop sign violations and other traffic incidents
  • car accidents
  • resisting arrest
  • drunk and disorderly
  • DWI and DUI
  • intent to sale
  • larceny and theft
  • noise ordinance violations
  • property crimes
  • illegal protests
  • assault and domestic abuse

If you are charged with any of these, the legal system is much more forgiving to first time offenders and individuals who are obviously trying to better themselves.  That is the point of college, correct? You can’t waste time; however, consult a lawyer before taking any legal actions.  Durham lawyer, Kevin E. Jones provides affordable legal services to Durham, NC and Chapel Hill, NC colledge students. Each State handles the charges and convictions somewhat differently so don’t make any assumptions based on “what you know”. Our Durham law firm provides assistance regardless of whether you are an in-state or out-of-state college student.
