Defense For College Students

College students accused of crimes need to proceed with caution. What may seem like a minor charge could have academic repercussions. A conviction could lead not only to driver's license suspension, fines, and incarceration, but also to disqualification from sports and other extracurricular activities, loss of student loans, suspension, or expulsion. What may seem like a minor, one-time mistake could change the course of a life forever.

At Smalley Law Firm in Norman, we defend college students facing criminal charges like:

  • Underage drinking
  • Public intoxication
  • Drunk driving
  • Marijuana possession and other drug crimes
  • Shoplifting and other theft crimes
  • Vandalism
  • Assault

Experience Is Crucial When A Future Is At Stake

With more than 25 years of experience, we understand the nuances involved in these matters. We recognize that there may be distinctions in how the case is handled based on where the crime was allegedly committed, on campus or off.

Our attorneys provide representation in the criminal defense matter itself and can offer guidance in related academic procedures such as university disciplinary proceedings. These are administrative proceedings, not legal proceedings, and come with an entirely different set of rules. You do not have to go into these proceedings on your own.

We defend students at the University of Oklahoma-Norman, Hillsdale Free Will Baptist College, Mid-America Christian University, Oklahoma City Community College, and all other public and private schools in the area.

Do Not Let One Misstep Change The Course Of Your Life

We believe that people make mistakes. Young people in particular should have the chance to learn from them and move forward. Unfortunately, the criminal justice system often does more harm than good, and it makes mistakes, too, which is why it is important to choose an aggressive lawyer to defend you if you are a college student accused of a crime.

If you are the parent of a college student facing criminal charges, we encourage you to contact us and learn more about your options. You may have the power to prevent this from ruining a college career and a bright future.
