College Students


College is a time in a person’s life when they’re learning about themselves and gaining an education. It is also one of the first times when most people are fully independent and living on their own. While this may be great fun, it can, unfortunately, lead to lapses in judgment, making the wrong friends, or even getting into legal trouble. At Dhar Law, LLP, our Boston college student defense attorneys have extensive experience representing college students against all types of charges, helping avoid the consequences of a conviction, such as expulsion.

Give us a call now at 617 880-6155 if you have gotten into trouble with the law. Call now for a free consultation with our student defense attorneys in Boston.


As an experienced and respected firm, we strongly believe that college students should not have to suffer consequences for the rest of their lives to pay for mistakes they made when they were young. Our goal is to show that they are a valuable member to society and prove their worth so that the judge may reconsider the stronger penalties, like jail or prison, and consider allowing them to pay restitution in other ways. We want to illustrate the importance of letting you continue your education so that you can grow and repay society. There are also a number of defense strategies we may employ, such as claiming mistaken identity.

A few examples of the penalties you could face if convicted include:

  • Exorbitant fees and fines
  • Probation
  • Criminal record
  • Loss of job
  • Expulsion
  • Jail or prison time
