School Disciplinary Hearing Attorneys

Title IX Lawyers in New England

At Shaheen & Gordon, P.A., our attorneys have extensive experience in representing students and faculty in campus disciplinary proceedings. We aggressively protect our clients’ rights in preparatory school, college, and university investigations and hearings, as well as related criminal and civil cases.

We represent people who are facing allegations of academic misconduct, including:

  • Plagiarism and cheating
  • Sexual assault and sexual harassment
  • Hazing
  • Alcohol and drug violations
  • Computer crimes
  • Violations of the student code or criminal law

We also file civil lawsuits in state and federal courts against educational institutions when they violate our clients’ rights. Our firm can defend student organizations, including fraternizes, sororities, and selective educational institutions. On the other hand, we can represent students and faculty who have experienced sexual assault and/or sexual harassment. We are the only legal team you need to know for all matters related to school disciplinary cases and Title IX proceedings.

Defense Representation for Accused Students & Faculty

Our attorneys have extensive experience handling all types of disciplinary matters for:

  • High schools
  • Preparatory schools
  • Universities
  • Colleges
  • Graduate school students
  • Faculty members

A campus misconduct allegation can lead to serious and life-changing consequences that can jeopardize your future and derail your academic career. Depending on the type of alleged violation, potential sanctions for students can include suspension or expulsion, sometimes resulting in a permanent stain on the accused’s academic record.

We also represent faculty members who face allegations of misconduct. Not only do these allegations bring great emotional distress, but can they result in career-ending consequences. In some cases, the results of a school’s investigation will be turned over to law enforcement for criminal prosecution. Our attorneys are experienced in both school disciplinary proceedings and the criminal law, and the interplay between them.

Call for Professional & Compassionate Legal Counsel

It is critical that a student or faculty member facing campus disciplinary proceedings involving an allegation of behavior that could be a violation of the criminal law consult with an experienced attorney as soon as they learn of any potential misconduct investigation or proceeding. It will be emotionally challenging for both the student and the parents, so retaining the services of a lawyer can help bring focus and confidence to the situation. We take our role as counselors and defense attorneys seriously and have the experience to guide our clients to minimize any potential consequences that might impact our clients.

Every case is different, but often an aggressive defense—which can include a thorough investigation and marshaling the evidence on behalf of our clients to rebut the opposition’s claims—can make a life-changing difference in outcomes. If you are facing disciplinary action from your preparatory school, college, or university, it is critical that you get legal advice as early in the process as possible. Get our Title IX and school disciplinary hearing lawyers on your side today.
