After being accused of violating Title IX on campus, some individuals may not feel it’s a big deal. Many share the assumption that for a first-time offense, they will get a warning or relatively light punishment. However, this is not the case. The consequences of a Title IX violation can put your academic future in jeopardy, as well as put you at risk of a criminal conviction.
We cannot emphasize enough the importance of working with a Title IX defense attorney through these cases. Here’s how we at Hager & Schwartz, P.A. can help.
Guidance Through Decision-Making
Perhaps one of the most beneficial things of working with a Title IX defense lawyer is their guidance and advice. Experienced Title IX attorneys have gone through numerous cases involving Title IX rules and laws, and have seen many different outcomes. This experience can be used to help guide you through your case to the best possible outcome.
An attorney can assist you with not only preparing important legal documents for your case, but also preparing your for any hearings. They can advise you on what you should and should not say, and other important information. Not only can they help coach you, but they can also participate in the Title IX proceedings.
In Title IX cases, the testimony from the alleged victim carries a lot of weight. It can be hard to combat this verbal evidence. However, a Title IX defense attorney knows what types of evidence you should look for to help your defense and how to go about obtaining it.
Peace of Mind
Hiring a Title IX defense attorney gives you peace of mind that you are doing everything possible to win your case. By hiring a legal professional, you know that you are in better hands. You also know you have an advocate on your side at a time when it may feel like everyone is against you.
