Helping Students Fight Criminal Charges

If you are a student at Louisiana State University or any other college in the Baton Rouge area, you need to take any criminal charge seriously. A conviction could affect your financial aid package as well as job prospects down the road.

At The Law Offices of Ossie Brown, we've been defending the rights of the accused since 1984. We are invested in our community, and several or our attorneys attended LSU and understand how a criminal charge can have long-term consequences. Our lawyers frequently represent college students from LSU, Southern and other local schools who are charged with crimes that occur on campus or in the community.

We continue to build on the legacy of our late founder, Ossie Brown, who was a respected criminal defense attorney following a long-term as a district attorney for East Baton Rouge Parish. Our Louisiana firm has obtained many positive defense outcomes for students.

Mitigating The Consequences

From our first meeting, we will be working on building the strongest defense to limit the damage. We handle the following types of charges that may face students:

  • Misdemeanor offenses of marijuana possession or shoplifting
  • Minor in possession and underage drinking charges
  • DUI/DWI charges stemming from the lower blood alcohol content limit for those under 21 and subject to more severe penalties

If a charge threatens job prospects or will affect a professional licensing opportunity, we can discuss whether an expungement may help.

Before Speaking With Police Or Paying A Fine

At the first possible opportunity, call 225-424-7388 or send us an email to set up a meeting to speak with one of our experienced defense attorneys. We offer free initial consultations to discuss your concerns and explain your legal options.
