Title IX and College Crimes
Protect your reputation and your future with an experienced Title IX attorney on your side.
Colleges and universities are under tremendous pressure to ensure that their students are protected from gender-based discrimination, harassment, and sexual misconduct. This is necessary not only for the sake of the school’s reputation, but also to ensure compliance with Title IX. Schools that are accused of non-compliance with this federal law risk losing their funding.
If you have been accused of a Title IX violation, you can expect your school to pursue the matter very aggressively. They may even show a bias towards you, seeming to consider you guilty even before the Title IX investigation and hearing have been completed. In order to ensure your rights are protected, it is extremely important to have a skilled and experienced Title IX defense attorney on your side.
