Student Conduct

“There’s a time and a place for everything. It’s called college.”

College can be some of the best years of your life. But administrative sanctions by your university or college can quickly turn them into some of the worst. This does not have to happen to you. The student disciplinary process is complex and has wide-ranging consequences. However, educational institutions – such as the University of Florida and Sante Fe College – allow students to have an advisor who can assist them in this process. An advisor can be, and should be, an attorney experienced not only in criminal law but someone who is also well-versed in the intricacies of the administrative process and the Student Code of Conduct/Honor Code.

A student’s most valuable asset is their future. Protect yours now!

With extensive experience in both criminal litigation and student disciplinary proceedings, our attorney, Adam J. Lee, helps students prepare the best possible defense. We will help the affected student understand the procedures and rules involved in the student disciplinary process, evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the institution’s case, assist in preparing witness examinations, advise as to the most effective way to present favorable evidence and be at the student’s side every step of the way.
