The Benari Law Group is skilled at defending students who have been accused of various crimes, including DUI; marijuana possession; and more serious crimes like assault, theft and sex-based crimes. We adjust our priorities for students knowing that they are likely to be first-time offenders who must protect their records at all cost in order to be able to use their degree in the job market.
From our offices in West Chester, Media, Philadelphia, Doylestown and Norristown, we’ve represented students from many of the area colleges and universities, including: West Chester University and Lincoln University on a consistent basis, as well as Villanova, Widener, Cabrini, Delaware County Community College, Cheyney University, Penn, Drexel, Temple and University of the Arts.
Defending College Students In Southeastern Pennsylvania
Young people make mistakes. When those mistakes have legal consequences, contact The Benari Law Group for experienced student defense. We have helped many students and parents ensure that the results of one mistake do not impact the rest of a student’s life. Our attorneys defend university and college students accused of a variety of crimes, including:
- Underage drinking and fake IDs
- Providing alcohol to a minor
- Drug possession and possession with intent to deliver (PWID)
- Traffic violations
- Shoplifting and other theft crimes
- Sexual assault
- Disorderly conduct
With the assistance and legal representation of an experienced defense lawyer, the threat of a criminal conviction can go away, and your child can learn from his or her mistakes without suffering severe legal penalties and consequences.
Protecting Your Child’s Future
The state frequently allows first-time offenders to attempt reform before being pushed through the criminal justice system. If this is the student’s first offense, he or she may be able to participate in a pretrial diversionary program and avoid a criminal conviction.
We also help students who have an arrest or conviction on record to conceal the offense so that it does not adversely affect future employment, education or housing opportunities. Ask about expungement, record sealing or pardons at your consultation.
