College Crimes

Criminal Defense for Sacramento Region College and University Students
Sacramento's many colleges and universities give people the opportunity to obtain an outstanding undergraduate or graduate education and provide our region with a skilled workforce. Unfortunately, some students find themselves facing criminal charges because of lapses in judgment or the influence of the wrong crowd; some are even wrongfully accused. When this happens, you need a quality criminal attorney to defend your rights and protect your reputation and future prospects. If you attend UC Davis, CSUS, American River College, Sierra College, Sacramento City College, Folsom Lake College, or Cosumnes River College and have been charged with a crime, call me at (916) 442-1200 for a free and confidential consultation.
Experience that Makes a Difference
I've practiced criminal law in the Sacramento region for nearly 20 years and have dealt with all types of cases involving college and university students. My previous work as a prosecutor in the Yolo County District Attorney's Office handling drug enforcement and other major crimes gives me valuable perspective of both sides the criminal justice system and helps me build an effective defense for my clients. I can represent you in cases involving:

Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
Minor in Possession of Alcohol
Furnishing Alcohol to a Minor
Drug Possession and Sale
Vehicular Crimes
Cycling Under the Influence (CUI)
Assault and Battery
Robbery and Burglary
Personally Representing Each Client
While some law firms will take you on as a client but then push you off to an inexperienced junior attorney, I pledge to represent you throughout the entire process. Your future is too important to be put in the hands of someone who doesn't know the law and isn't familiar with the different counties' courts. Testimonials from past clients show that I follow through on my commitment to keep you advised at every stage, explain your options in clear language, and work to protect your long-term interests.
Keeping Your Life on Track
If you're a college student facing criminal charges, it's easy to get distracted from your studies. Part of my commitment is to shield you as much as possible. In many instances, I can make all your court and DMV appearances for you, giving you time to get your life back on track.
