East Carolina University Student Defense Lawyer

If your son or daughter has been charged with a crime while attending East Carolina University (ECU), or if you are an ECU student facing a legal issue, there are several things an experienced criminal defense lawyer can do to help keep a poor decision from becoming a permanent criminal record.

I am criminal defense attorney Keith Williams. For more than two decades, I have dedicated my Greenville law practice to defending minors and adults charged with criminal offenses, including college students accused of:

  • Underage drinking/drinking tickets
  • Drug charges for possession of marijuana, prescription drugs etc. or drug paraphernalia
  • Reckless driving
  • Assault
  • Resisting arrest
  • Credit card fraud
  • Shoplifting

A former client had this to say: "We really appreciate the special interest that you have taken in our case. We appreciate your words of wisdom to our son. We think that finally [he] realizes how close he came to losing a lot."

Keeping Students' Records Clean

North Carolina employers and graduate schools do more thorough background checks than ever these days, and even a minor criminal conviction in college can lead to serious problems in the future.

Fortunately, I have very often been able to resolve first-time offenses with dismissals or substantial reductions to lower charges.* In many cases, I have also applied for expunction to erase the charges completely from the students' court records.* Doing so puts the ECU students in a much better position after graduation, when it comes time to take the next step in life.
