Our firm has been successfully representing Eckerd College students with their legal needs for decades. Our firm’s founder, Anthony Battaglia, handled scores of legal issues on behalf of both Eckerd College and its students. Our lawyers have carried on the tradition.
Eckerd College is a relatively small private school in St. Petersburg, Florida. Our firm has been chosen by Eckerd College students over the years because of our superior legal recognition, skills, and close proximity to the school. In fact, our office is only a 6 mile drive away from the school.
Over the decades, we have found that many Eckerd College students are from out of state or even another country. When the students encounter problems, they often do not have their parents or families readily available and our firm is called upon to help.
Like any other college students, Eckerd students occasionally encounter legal issues. Whether a student is injured in a car accident, having problems with disciplinary matters, or even criminal charges, our firm is equipped to help.
By being a local and experienced law firm, we are familiar with the resources available to Eckerd students both through the school and in the community. We have handled countless injury cases for students injured on Eckerd property or in car accidents in the Tampa Bay area. Unfortunately, we also have represented many students for criminal charges. Commonly, these criminal charges are alcohol or drug-related. We have handled many DUIs, other reckless conduct such as criminal mischief, battery, stalking, as well as extremely serious sex offenses such as date rape.
Although Eckerd College has many therapists and resources available to assist its students, there are times when a situation advances to the point where legal counsel is needed. Many families retain our office to serve as a point of contact and guide for their child after an unfortunate incident has occurred. We have helped counsel, countless young people, as they deal with unexpected legal issues. We have helped prevent arrests and criminal records when possible. Most importantly, we have assisted students during an extremely vulnerable point in their lives and helped them get their lives back on track.
If your child is a student at Eckerd College and you would like to speak to our office about the legal options available, please do not hesitate to call or email. We find that many issues can be resolved with prompt decision making after consultation with the family.
