Having an office located in Bloomington, Illinois gives The Law Office of Robert J. Carter the unique opportunity to represent students attending several local colleges including: Illinois State University, Illinois Wesleyan University, Heartland Community College and Lincoln College. There are five different policing agencies patrolling the Bloomington-Normal area, which can make it relatively easy for students to get caught and arrested for violations while attending school, especially if they are away from home for the first time and attempting to “sew their wild oats”. While a violation may seem minor at the time, a conviction could affect current college careers, financial aid eligibility, driving privileges, and future employment opportunities in a competitive job market.

Having years of experience in working with college students and their parents, The Law Office of Robert J. Carter is equipped to handle your criminal case, whether it’s an ordinance violation, misdemeanor or felony. Common cases associated with local college students include:
