We can help you with your federal issue, including providing you with a strong federal weapons defense, offering assistance and advice concerning a federal criminal investigation, and answering questions about and assisting with federal sentencing matters.
  • College Disciplinary Hearings: When a student is accused of a criminal offense or violating the school’s code of conduct, college or university officials can initiate a student disciplinary hearing. The outcome of the disciplinary hearing is just as important as the outcome of the criminal case, as both can result in serious penalties. Many individuals are unaware of the severity of the consequences that can result in the student disciplinary sanctions, such as dismissal from the college, impediment to acceptance at other schools and graduate programs and a permanent mark attached to the student’s record. Mr. Montroy has successfully represented students in such hearings throughout the State of Pennsylvania.
    Some of the most common student offenses that result in a college disciplinary hearing are:

      • Student Code Violations
      • Minor in Possession of Alcohol
      • Driving While Intoxicated
      • Assault
      • Shoplifting
      • Drug Possession
      • Sexual Misconduct
      • Disorderly Conduct

    There is a wide array of punishments that a college or university may adjudicate if a student is found responsible for the alleged conduct. Please contact the Law Offices of Andrew David Montroy, Esq., for an experienced attorney to handle your disciplinary hearing.
