Our team helps students and professionals across the country involved in university and k-12 school disciplinary proceedings. We will serve as your advocate and assist you in the misconduct proceedings. We work to ensure a reasonable outcome and aim to protect our clients’ academic and professional reputation and career. And where student misconduct matters overlap with potential criminal liability, our attorneys will help to navigate the parallel proceedings.

Our attorneys also vigorously defend our clients’ rights by filing lawsuits against universities for violations of Title IX or due process and against individuals who make false allegations of sexual assault. We will fight to ensure that you receive justice, challenge any evidence that is illegally obtained, and make certain that your defense is presented as strongly as possible. We can do this because our attorneys have assisted hundreds of falsely accused individuals address Title IX disciplinary issues at universities such as:

We have successfully settled many cases on behalf of our clients who have filed lawsuits against public and private universities. Our Title IX resource section contains court decisions from some of these cases.

In reaching these settlements, the firm’s clients were able to put the nightmares of their false allegations firmly behind them and have achieved meaningful outcomes by requiring the defendant university to expunge sexual misconduct findings from disciplinary records, and even by securing from the accuser a retraction of false allegations of sexual misconduct.
