How did you get involved in Title IX work?

 

Many years ago as a young attorney, I represented a dental student in a criminal case. He was accused of sexual assault. During the course of the criminal case, the school filed Title IX charges against him. I handled the Title IX case and I realized that there was a need for somebody falsely accused or accused in any capacity, somebody looking out for the accused student because the school, it's looking out for its interests first and foremost. It's concerned about its liabilities, does not have the accused student's rights and interests in mind. And unfortunately at times, a school may not even play by its own rules. An accused student, I realized they needed a dedicated advocate, someone who was willing to fight for them to make certain that it was a fair process and to do everything possible to try to assure a favorable outcome. That's the reason I got into Title IX work, and I've made it the focus of my practice representing students and faculty, professors across the United States.
