Young adults attending the University of Georgia, Gainesville State College and other local colleges, universities and technical schools in and around Athens, GA are arrested, taken to jail, booked, fingerprinted, photographed and prosecuted for felonies, misdemeanors and ordinance violations almost every day. Once arrested, the government prosecutes these young people using experienced prosecuting attorneys who will seek criminal convictions and often ask the court to impose the maximum sentence allowed by law — even for minor in possession (MIP) cases. Even worse, these arrests result in law-abiding college students from good families being forever branded as criminals.

STUDENT LEGAL SERVICES, an undertaking of criminal defense attorney Kim T. Stephens is a service venture specifically designed to assist UGA and Georgia college students facing criminal charges for a reasonable fee. STUDENT LEGAL SERVICES was founded for two reasons: first, to defend students who, in the past, lived and thrived in loving and caring collegial environments similar to home but who now find themselves being labeled as “criminals” by overzealous law enforcement officers and  expelled and suspended from school due to inflexible and unreasonable policies and rules; and second, to allow families to be proactive in protecting themselves and their children against damage to their future lives and finances.
