Committed To Protecting Your Future
College is a time for experimentation with ideas and behaviors, and for having fun. Sometimes, students make mistakes that put them at odds with the law.
I am attorney Frank Harper of Everett & Hite, L.L.P. I believe that every person deserves a solid defense when accused of a crime. If you are a student at East Carolina University, Pitt Community College or another school in eastern North Carolina, contact me by email for a free and confidential consultation.

College Mistake? Reach Out To Me.
A “youthful mistake” can lead to a criminal record, making future employment and higher education more difficult to attain. In my law practice, I attempt to limit the consequences of criminal offenses, including:
- Underage drinking violations and possession of a fake ID
- Underage possession of alcohol offenses
- College student drug violations, including drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia
- Misdemeanor and felony drug charges for offenses that include trafficking and manufacturing
- Traffic offenses, including reckless driving and speeding
- Disorderly conduct
- Simple assault
- Public intoxication
- Drunk driving
- Larceny or theft of personal property
I am qualified to represent your case whether you need an advocate to defend your side before student conduct and rights boards or in court.
Don’t Let A Student Arrest Ruin Your Future — Seek Expungement
An arrest or conviction for a crime can have serious implications for a young person’s future. Employers, colleges and graduate schools perform background checks that can reveal a criminal conviction — or even an arrest for which charges were later dropped.
I have assisted young people by clearing them of charges or pleading for lesser charges with less serious penalties. When possible, I encourage my clients to pursue expungement of charges or convictions from their criminal records.
