It is no secret that students often have access to alcohol, both on and off campus. Many college students can run into trouble while blowing off steam in the evening, on the weekend, during mid-terms or during finals. Some people have the misconception that an underage drinking or minor in possession charge is some kind of rite of passage. In reality, any alcohol-related offense is a serious matter that should not be taken lightly, especially for college, trade or technical school students in southwest Virginia.
Experience From Both Sides Of The Courtroom To Analyze From Every Angle
Clemons Law, P.C., in Christiansburg, VA, is an established resource for parents and college students when underage consumption charges arise. Prior to opening my criminal defense practice, I was a prosecutor with the Roanoke City Commonwealth's Attorney's Office. I know the way prosecutors approach alcohol-related offenses. Moreover, as a criminal defense lawyer, I recognize the long-term impact a conviction will have on your future. I am here to help you protect your future.
Many people assume they can get a conviction expunged in the future and choose not to challenge the prosecutor. Unfortunately, expungement in the future is not a given. I work hard on the front end to resolve criminal charges against college students with a strong focus on the future.
As an experienced trial lawyer, I am well-prepared to stand strong between my clients and the poser of the commonwealth attorneys. However, creative alternative solutions may be a more appropriate course of action in an individual case. I work directly with clients to explain every legal course of action. You can rest assured that you will not only have a voice in the system, but I will remain committed to obtaining the most favorable outcome possible.
