When you are away at school, the last thing you want to have to do is call your parents for bail money.
Maybe one night you're out just having a good time with your friends, and the next thing you know there's a cop in your face asking you questions. Then he hands you a ticket - or worse - he handcuffs you and escorts you to the back of a squad car.
When you have to deal with the police and the legal process, it can leave you feeling embarrassed, anxious and stressed - which is the last thing you need when you are just trying to get through school and move on to a career.
When you find yourself in this situation, you will want to consult with an attorney to be informed of your rights and what to expect at each step of the legal process and to be advised of your options and the best direction to take in your case. You will want an attorney who not only has the necessary experience, but someone who genuinely cares about your situation.

Susan L. Stambaugh's goal is to step in and take care of your legal matter as expediently as possible -while striving for the best possible outcome - so that you can put the matter behind you and get focused again on your education and future career.
