Has Your Student Been Arrested For Marijuana Possession?
As a Pennsylvania college student, you can risk losing your financial aid or losing a year or more of studies due to marijuana charges. Some of our clients were caught sharing a joint with friends and suddenly faced felony charges for intent to deliver. We educate clients about their rights and fight to reduce or eliminate charges.
Students facing a first-offense misdemeanor for marijuana possession may qualify for the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program, similar to probation. Under ARD, charges will be suspended temporarily and then dismissed from your record if the program is successfully completed as determined. We offer a flat-fee model to make our services more affordable for college students.
Call (610) 200-6103 today and learn how we can help you apply for ARD.
