College Student Arrests

When college students are charged with crimes in Texas, they not only have to be concerned with criminal prosecution, they must also consider how their criminal charges will affect their ability to continue receiving an education at their institution. A conviction may lead to possible suspension or expulsion from a university or other institution of higher learning.

Even when guilty pleas seemingly result in little more than fines, there can be several unforeseen long-term consequences to any kind of conviction. For this reason, it is critical for any alleged offender currently enrolled in a college in Texas to have legal counsel willing and able to fight for the best possible outcome that preserves a student’s academic career.

    I was pulled over on the North Dallas Tollway for going 90 mph. The cop said that I was all over the road, and failed all the field tests and was obviously intoxicated. I pretty much lost all hope that I would walk away from this. That was until I found Richard McConathy. Richard and his firm fought the DA and eventually got my case dismissed. I couldn''t give a bigger recommendation for these guys. If you''re in trouble don''t hesitate, it is worth it.

    The law offices of Richard C. McConathy represented me with the utmost professionalism and they secured a victory for my probation revocation case. My case was nine years old and I was told by other firms that it would be very difficult to get the judge to revoke. This firm took my case on, and not only won the judgment, but also got the original probation case conditions dismissed. I highly recommend this law firm to any person in need if legal representation. They are very considerate and extremely knowledgeable.
