The various athletic activities and other events of the surrounding college and university communities can bring numerous alumni, visiting students and other out-of-town participants to the Lansing area. With many people taking advantage of the lively atmosphere, incidents of drunk driving, drug use, minor in possession and various other criminal offenses often occur.
If you or a loved one was arrested and charged with a crime while partaking in a campus event or while visiting the area, you likely face some difficult decisions regarding legal representation. At Baird and Zulakis P.C., Attorneys at Law, we have helped numerous individuals from outside the Lansing area resolve their legal issues because we are a local firm with professional ties to the community. From appearing on a client's behalf during a hearing, to representing his or her interests during trial, we put our knowledge of the area courts, local laws and customs, and our commitment to finding creative solutions to work for those who secure our services.
A Brief Visit Could Turn Into An Extended Stay
After a Spartans victory, the celebrations can quickly get out of hand if individuals consume alcohol to excess or get behind the wheel of a vehicle after having too much to drink. Some common campus crimes we see when representing people visit colleges or universities include:
- Drug possession
- Minor in possession
- Public intoxication
- Public urination
- Noise ordinance violations
- Sexual assault
By securing experienced representation from a lawyer who works and lives in the local community, you can mitigate potential consequences stemming from a conviction and possibly even return home with a clean record. We will work with your schedule and do everything we can to simplify the process.
