At Barbarette & Quirk, we understand the importance of your academic career at the University of Florida (UF). If you have been accused of violating the student conduct code or committing a crime, we will work hard to help you avoid potential issues that could lead to an interruption in your academic career, being forced to withdraw, or being expelled from school.
In many of these cases you will have to go to a college disciplinary hearing, also known as a UF judicial hearing or student conduct hearing, as well as the criminal justice system. These are two parallel processes.
Most of the cases we represent involve violations related to drug or alcohol use. We defend against allegations of underage drinking, public intoxication, and driving under the influence (DUI). In recent years, the University of Florida has made drunk driving a particular focus, and UF students charged with this crime may find that the penalties are very serious. Furthermore, we defend against charges of drug possession and marijuana crimes. Our Gainesville criminal defense attorneys know how to work with the school and with the criminal prosecutor to protect you.
With more than 40 years of combined experience, our Gainesville criminal defense lawyers know what it takes to find successful outcomes. We know how to work with the school and with the criminal prosecutor to protect you, and will do our best to find the resolution you are looking for.
If you are facing a student conduct hearing at your school, don't wait to call Barbarette & Quirk today at (352) 356-4999 to schedule a free consultation.
