Athens Underage Drug Possession Lawyer

If you are a student at the University of Georgia, a drug possession conviction could not only affect your criminal record, it could also affect your standing as a student, your scholarships or financial aid, and your future employment opportunities. Even if you avoid a conviction, the charges alone can have a negative impact on your college career.

You will be contacted by officials from the criminal justice system and by UGA officials. You need an experienced lawyer on your side to help you manage the potential consequences from both.

At the Law Offices of Adam M. Cain, LLC, we understand the seriousness of the situation, and work closely with students who are facing drug charges to advise them of the best course of action. Because we are located right in Athens, we have years of experience working with college officials.

You Have Options, But You Need An Attorney

Regardless of whether this is your first, second or third offense, it's important to know that you have options. In some instances, individuals may qualify for a diversion program, and successful completion of the program could result in having the charges dropped from their records. However, acceptance into the program must be negotiated and approved by the state of Georgia, which must be done by a lawyer.

Underage drug possession charges are serious, but having an experienced attorney at your side can make the difference between getting expelled and being able to move forward with your life.
