Don't Put Your Professional And Educational Future At Risk When Faced With Campus Crimes

When trouble knocks at your door, you need a lawyer who has the experience to defend your rights regardless of the criminal charges. I am John A. March, and whether you or a loved one has been charged with a misdemeanor or serious felony in state or federal court, I will help you stand up to the charges and defend your rights.

Understanding The Implications Of Campus Crimes

With numerous colleges and universities throughout the Richmond area, I often work with young people who find themselves on the wrong side of the law. Whether you were arrested for marijuana possession or you were visiting campus for a sporting event and the authorities pulled you over for drunk driving, working with a local attorney can make the difference between a tarnished criminal record and a future full of educational and professional opportunities.

Although fines, jail time and the suspension of your driver's license are things you want to avoid, there are numerous other consequences to be mindful of when faced with criminal charges. If you are in school, you may be suspended or expelled; you may be ineligible for scholarships or study abroad opportunities; after school, your ability to get a good job may be compromised. By working closely with you, I will explain these and other issues while exploring all options for protecting your immediate and future interests.

Some of the most common types of criminal offenses occurring on college campuses include:

  • Drug crimes, including marijuana possession
  • Alcohol-related offenses, including DUI/DWI, public intoxication and underage possession of alcohol
  • Sex offenses
  • Petty larceny
  • Shoplifting
  • Assault and battery

There are dozens of colleges and universities in Richmond and the surrounding area, including:

  • Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU)
  • University of Richmond (UR)
  • Randolph-Macon College (RMC)
  • Virginia State
  • Virginia Union
  • College of William & Mary
  • University of Virginia (UVA)

No matter if you are student or a concerned parent, I will provide clear and discreet representation. Together we can limit exposure, reach a timely resolution and aggressively defend your future.
