A Message to Students

My Message To Ohio University Students Facing Criminal Charges

Do Not Let One Mistake Ruin Your Future

You are in college, and you made a mistake. Or perhaps you have been falsely accused of a crime. Either way, your future could be in jeopardy. In addition to the possibility of fines and jail time, you could be expelled and perhaps not even get into another school with a serious criminal conviction on your record.

Let me help you. I am a criminal defense attorney representing college students charged with crimes. I have more than 20 years of experience as a lawyer, and I am extremely dedicated to winning for my clients. From my Athens office, I represent Ohio University students facing drug crime charges, sex crime charges and other criminal charges.

I have a Ph.D. in criminology, extensive knowledge breaking down forensic evidence, and more than 20 years of criminal defense experience serving clients in Athens and Lancaster, Ohio, and I work with a private investigator when necessary to get the facts for my clients. My legal representation is marked by relentless investigation and preparation, a strong commitment and effort, and an effective courtroom presence that is compelling to judges and juries.

I will do everything in my power to put you in the best position to succeed.

In addition to defending you against alcohol charges or other charges you might be facing, I can help you get things back on track. I can help you find the right alcohol or drug treatment facility or mental health care center, or other resource you might need. This can help you get things straightened out in your life, and in many cases this approach is helpful in the criminal case, as well.
