When a college student or just a young person with the world ahead of him/her gets a criminal charge, unique issues arise for the legal representation. The legal representation can be unlike representing a multiple-offender client charged with armed robbery or murder. Our college-aged clients and clients who attend LSU, Baton Rouge Community College, or any other college or university in the area deserve special attention and a tailored representation.
Our focus during the legal representation of LSU students includes many aspects, the most important of which include:
The end goal is that they can complete school and are able to move on to graduate school or employment just as planned before they even started their education. We believe that a minor bump in the road during school should not ruin their chances for success in the future.
Since our college-clients are usually young and unfamiliar with being in this situation, we offer extra support to ensure they get their life back on track so they can continue with their education. Many times, after the representation is over our client is more knowledgeable and better prepared to deal with his/her surroundings, get through school, and become successful. We have had many clients and their parents thank us for our dedication and caring in helping their son or daughter get through such a difficult time.
Most of our LSU student-clients come to us through their parents. The parents are often terrified and distraught after their child receives a criminal charge. They don’t often understand the criminal justice system and what to expect. We answer all the questions. We let our client’s parents feel at ease after we inform them of what to expect and our strategy. Our client’s parents gain a lot of relief after speaking to us and obtaining our services. We take full control of our client’s case and get them through it with success.
Our clients with criminal charges who are LSU students, whether they are undergraduate or graduate students, require much more care and understanding than clients with most charges. We have represented hundreds of LSU students charged with crimes in Baton Rouge. We thoroughly understand the necessary steps and the ways to help our clients. Experience is key to helping LSU students. We have that experience as many of our clients are LSU students.
Every criminal case is different for our students. We do not lump every client into a category. As you will see below, the first step is getting to know our client so we can better understand his/her situation, thereby, increasing our ability to help. The following are some of the services included in the representation of our LSU students:
