student lawyers in delaware

For many students attending the Delaware State University or Wesley College, this is their first time away from home. Sometimes good kids that are away from their supportive circle of close friends, relatives and neighbors at home get into serious legal trouble that they cannot talk themselves out ofsuch as DUI, drug charges or assault. When that occurs, I advise the parents of out-of-state students to retain an experienced criminal defense attorney who knows Delaware law and understands how the Delaware police and court systems work. I am attorney John R. Garey, skilled criminal defense lawyer in Dover, Delaware. I have more than 30 years of experience on both the prosecuting and criminal defense sides of the law. I spent the first 15 years of my legal career as a prosecutor for Kent and Sussex counties in Delaware. In 2003, I opened the law offices of John R. Garey, because I wanted to devote my legal career to helping peoplethe original reason I became a defense lawyer. I understand that your college student has his or her entire life and career in front of them. That is why I am committed to protecting the rights of college students accused of serious crimes such as theft, burglary and possession of prescription narcotics.
