Aggressive Defense For College Students In Eastern Tennessee

Your college years are among the most productive in terms of self-discovery. It's a time when you figure out and hopefully solidify your chosen career path. You may discover things about yourself you did not know. Who knows, you may even meet your life partner.

Nothing derails your college experience faster than a criminal charge. In addition to academic learning and personal growth, college is often a time when young people experiment with risky behaviors. If these behaviors lead to a criminal charge, nothing less than an experienced criminal defense team will help to put your life back on track.

If you're in your late teens or 20s, or you are concerned about your college-age child, turn to the Garza Law Firm PLLC in Knoxville for help. Our Knoxville law firm defends college students from surrounding area schools such as the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (the university's largest campus), Knoxville College, South College, Johnson University and many other community and technical institutions. Our experience includes defending students against:

  • DUI/DWI charges
  • Drug possession and related crimes
  • Hacking, possession of child pornography and Internet crimes
  • Assault and violent crimes
  • Sexual assault and rape

Protecting Your Rights On All Fronts

These charges carry not only criminal penalties but also have serious implications for your college career. Simply being accused of a crime could mean losing scholarships or lead to suspension or expulsion.

Attorney Marcos Garza and his team understand these collateral consequences, and we seek to defend your child's rights and reputation on all fronts. In addition to representing you in court, we do what we can to help you maintain your academic standing and navigate the administrative issues that could come up in the course of your case.

We'll Protect Your Present And Future

We know most students are not bad kids. In fact, several fall into temptations innocently enough: "It was just a regular weekend party." "It was just the one time — I don't normally smoke marijuana or use drugs." "I thought my browser history would remain private." These are comments we have heard all too often. We know they ring true for many college students, especially those who were not criminally charged.

We will use our extensive experience, training and resources to defend you and protect your future from sabotage brought on by a criminal charge. To learn more, contact our firm at 865-329-6982 or 866-893-8413 toll free to schedule a consultation with our lawyers.
