How a Title IX Lawyer Can Help You

Jun 20

Title IX is a large body of law that prohibits sexual discrimination based on gender in schools, universities and any entity receiving federal funding. The law also prohibits retaliation for filing a Title IX complaint or report. If you are a college or university student who has experienced sexual misconduct on campus or has been accused of any other form of gender-based discrimination, a Title IX Lawyer Flagstaff can help you navigate these complex proceedings.

We can ensure that your rights are fully protected throughout the entire process of investigating and responding to a Title IX complaint at your school. Many of these cases are very complicated and involve a lot of evidence. We will gather all the facts and compile compelling evidence of any discriminatory actions to support your claim. This can include correspondence, eyewitness accounts, school handbooks and other records and documents. Our firm also helps you compile evidence that proves any retaliation and how the alleged conduct has affected your life.

Most Title IX investigations take place at your school or university, which means they will be conducted by a person who works for the institution. This person can be a law enforcement officer, public security official or a private investigator hired by the university to investigate your case. It is common for these investigators to have a bias against the complainant or respondent, which can make it difficult for them to impartially investigate the allegations in your case.

A Title IX defense attorney can work to uncover any bias in the investigation and bring it to light before the hearing. They can also assist with the necessary paperwork and prepare you to testify at a Title IX hearing or panel. If a school is found to have violated your civil rights under Title IX, they may be required to provide you with monetary compensation or other remedial measures.
