Additional Resources

Attorney Joseph D. Lento has developed many professional relationships with experts in their respective fields across the United States to help best address the issues that students and others in academia face at schools across the United States.  Such issues are manifold, and the Lento Law Firm has the requisite experience and expertise to understand how to most effectively address a case whether it involves student discipline defense, student rights, or any other issue.
With regards to Title IX sexual misconduct, because Title IX cases may come down to it being one person's (or people's) word against another, the taking, passing, and submission of a forensic psychosexual evaluation can help potentially tip the scales in a respondent's favor. 
As with other expert services that can be employed, the Lento Law Firm can help provide assistance in securing a forensic psychosexual evaluation and also presenting the expert report and testimony as best as possible to the applicable college or university. 
One such resource in Title IX cases available to the Lento Law Firm is the services of Melissa O., a Clinically Certified Sex Offender Therapist who also is  licensed Professional Counselor and an Approved Clinical Supervisor.  Melissa works with attorneys such as Joseph D. Lento, courts, and the legal system to provide forensic psychosexual evaluations to those experiencing legal trouble related to sexual misconduct.  Melissa also provides court reports and expert witness testimony as requested.

Melissa has worked as an adjunct professor teaching Human Sexuality and Sociology to undergraduate students after graduating with her Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology and Human Services.

Another resource that the Lento Law Firm leverages on behalf of clients are the services of Dr. Joan F. a rare professional who is trained in both psychology and law.  Dr. F. received her doctorate in psychology and her law degree from a nationally-recognized university.  Dr. F. uses her unique perspective to help clients of the Lento Law Firm with any issue that could benefit from her involvement in a case.  In addition, as a certified school psychologist, Dr. F assists in advocating for student's educational rights and has successfully sued school districts when student rights were infringed and other concerns had to be addressed by the courts.

Having fought in the trenches for many years on behalf of students and others, attorney Joseph D. Lento has established a network of professional resources across the nation to help mount the strongest possible defense in Title IX cases and other matters .  Each case is unique, but with the expertise and guidance of the Lento Law Firm, a client can buttress his or her case with expert resources most appropriate to the circumstances.
