Defending NYC Students' Rights

Need criminal defense in New York City?

Anyone charged with a crime faces potential criminal penalties. However, a charge during college can have serious additional consequences that may affect a student's college, career, and future choices.

College is the first time young adults are on their own, making independent decisions. At Law Office of Mark A. Bederow, P.C., we understand that the college environment puts students in new situations that occasionally result in police involvement and criminal charges.

We can defend you from charges such as:

New York College Disciplinary Action

As the result of an accusation or an arrest, college and university administrations may seek to impose penalties on students for violating the institution's code of conduct. These proceedings are separate and distinct from the legal system. A student may find him or herself facing disciplinary action even before any outcome to criminal charges has been reached.

Disciplinary decisions by the college can threaten a student's right to continued attendance, among other penalties. It is critical to have experienced counsel who understands the complexities of the various issues pertaining to the investigation or prosecution of a student.

Law Office of Mark A. Bederow, P.C.

Arrests of students frequently involve alcohol or drugs and / or allegations of sexual misconduct. These serious accusations may have permanent and irreversible consequences if they are not defended by a professional from the start.

In order to protect your college career, future employment options, and to prevent the ongoing stigma of a criminal conviction and / or registration as a sex offender, it is essential that you secure the highest quality representation. Mr. Bederow, a former Manhattan assistant district attorney, has vast experience in scrutinizing the credibility of complaining witnesses and conducting investigations which may serve as the basis for achieving a favorable outcome.
