College Student & Juvenile Crimes

A lapse in judgment as a minor could haunt you well into the future. If you are facing criminal charges, disciplinary action at college could be a real possibility, including a suspension or getting expelled. Employers are also reluctant to hire anyone with a criminal record.

The best investment you can make is to select an experienced defense attorney to protect your rights. At Dobson, Davis & Smith, we have decades of experience aggressively defending minors in similar situations to yours.

We understand you may feel tempted to talk with law enforcement to explain anything that may have been misconstrued. However, even a minor detail could be used against you. Law enforcement is not on your side, but we are privileged to help and we know how to help defend you from criminal charges.

If you or your child is facing criminal allegations, understandably, you feel overwhelmed. The last thing you need is to be left with any surprises. We are committed to helping you navigate through the legal system, while staying ahead of the prosecution at every turn possible.

We offer an aggressive defense strategy to evaluate the evidence obtained against you. Our legal team will also conduct its own investigation to try and uncover any contradictory witness statements or evidence that can be used in your favor.
