Unwavering Representation for Title IX Hearings

When a student is accused of committing a sex crime, it will trigger a Title IX investigation and hearing. Title IX is a controversial portion of the federal Education Amendments Act of 1972 that has been used in recent years to expedite student board hearings out of favor of those accused of sexual assault on campus or against another student. In most cases, the accusations lead to near-immediate consequences for the accused, including expulsion, even when no evidence of wrongdoing is present.

If you have been targeted by a Title IX hearing, you do not have much time to defend your right to your education. Call (214) 273-6603 as soon as you can to get the help of our Title IX defense attorneys.
