Criminal Defense For College Students

Finding yourself suspected of a crime or under arrest is a terrifying situation for anyone, but it is even worse when you know the outcome of your case could change the course of your future. College and university students involved in a criminal matter face unique challenges such as maintaining their enrollment in school. They may also be far from home, dealing with a complicated situation without parental support.

Attorneys J. Dean Keegan and Thomas D.S. Farnsworth have helped many students defend themselves against criminal charges, navigate university regulations and minimize penalties.
