A Lawyer for ASU Students
Every fall thousands of parents will their children to Arizona State University for their freshman year. For many students, this will be their first time living away from home. Parents and students are excited to furnish their dorms, meet their dormmates and choose their classes. When parents leave their children on the last day of move in weekend, they experience mixed emotions. On one hand, they are happy their child is getting ready to embark on a new chapter in their life. On the other hand, they are hoping their child takes school seriously and does not get hurt or find themselves in any trouble.
While my office represents ASU students who get in trouble for typical college “crimes,” i.e. underage drinking, urinating in public, minor in possession of alcohol, disorderly conduct, a few times throughout the academic year, we will represent an ASU student who is facing very serious felony charges.
When a parent finds out their child has been arrested, their entire life becomes disheveled. Typically, parents are out of state. They don’t know anyone in Arizona. Although they are mad at their child, they feel hopeless about not being able to immediately help them. Some of the more common types of serious charges my office sees ASU students charged with are drug and sex charges.
