Lawyers for UVA Students
A criminal conviction can affect your career and future. Every lawyer at Davidson & Kitzmann, PLC is a graduate of the University of Virginia. We understand that sometimes students make a mistake or are wrongfully charged. Our criminal lawyers have more than 40 years of combined experience handling every type of criminal law case - including defending UVA students for the charges with which they are most often charged. These charges include:
Serious ConsequencesMany of our UVA clients, or their parents, believe that the police or the prosecutors will give students a break or treat them leniently. This is not true; the police and prosecutors will charge and prosecute a student just as quickly as anyone else. If you are charged with underaged drinking (also known as underage possession of alchol), it is important to take the charges seriously. A conviction could result in jail time, substantial fines, community service, and other penalties. In addition, you may be charged with a violation of the honor code by the University of Virginia. After graduation, a criminal conviction could seriously hinder your opportunity to enter graduate school or obtain employment.
Free Case EvaluationWe offer UVA students a free case evaluation. We will be able to discuss the charges you are facing, our fees, and an overview of the services we will be able to provide you. There are options in the law that your defense lawyer may be able to use to get your charges completely dismissed. This can greatly benefit first-time offenders, as it means his or her record remains clean of criminal charges. Our office is located in downtown Charlottesville, next to the courthouses. Our criminal lawyers are in the local courts, in front of the local judges,and discussing cases with the local prosecutors several days of every week.
