If you or your child has been accused of a crime, there are both short- and long-term consequences to consider. In the short-term, if you lose your driver’s license as the result of a DUI, getting to class (or the part-time job that helps pay your tuition and living expenses) can become difficult. And even a ten-day jail sentence can cost a student the entire semester.
In the longer term, a criminal conviction can impact your ability to obtain certain kinds of financial aid, placing additional hurdles between you and your degree. Many careers require a background check, including becoming a teacher, law enforcement officer, joining the military or becoming a pilot. It can be frightening and frustrating to have limitations placed on your future at such an early stage in your life.
That is why you need experienced legal representation. You need an attorney who will take your situation seriously and put forth the effort required to obtain the best possible result in each and every case.
Maybe you are attending college in Georgia, but your parents (who have always helped you when you faced difficult decisions in the past) are far away, even in another state. Or maybe you are a parent who lives outside of Georgia and your child has confided in you that they are facing criminal charges. You may feel overwhelmed and helpless at a time when your child needs you the most.
