WSMLEGAL has advised students and college employees in matters related to Title IX and university disciplinary issues. These matters are often sensitive, confidential, and rife with judgment calls. WSMLEGAL has the experience and judgment to ensure an accused has his/her best chance of success.
For individuals, Title IX and other university disciplinary issues can often be difficult to navigate, as most university policies do not allow for an attorney to represent the individual at any interview or hearing. At most colleges and universities, individuals are only given the option of an “advisor” who can silently attend meetings and hearings. That makes preparation for interviews and hearings essential in these matters. WSMLEGAL has a long history of successfully preparing clients for those interviews and hearings. Having been through the process with its clients numerous times, WSMLEGAL can advise individuals on what to expect through the process, how to navigate the process (from agreed upon resolutions, to requesting an administrative resolution, to seeing the process through a final determination and appeal), how to prepare, and how to give themselves the best chance at success.
For colleges and universities, the handling of Title IX complaints can have severe consequences related to funding and oversight. The importance of having clearly-established, compliant processes and adhering to those processes in every case cannot be understated. WSMLEGAL has the experience to advise colleges and universities in establishing those processes and aiding them in individual cases when the need arises. In addition, WSMLEGAL can represent the college or university should litigation ensue.
WSMLEGAL has the knowledge and experience to guide clients through issues related to Title IX and other university disciplinary processes. The stakes are high in these matters for all parties involved, and WSMLEGAL is a firm clients can trust to provide sound advice and representation.
