Nightmare to Great Outcome

As a parent, you are excited to send off your child to college as they continue to becoming adults. Then you get a call from your child that they have a "Hearing" at their University with four days to prepare with serious consequences. After trying to contain your emotions, my wife an I reached out to Joseph Lento. We scheduled a consultation and Joseph clearly presented a plan to defend our child. He worked with us collectively but more importantly with our daughter on how to frame her defense. He developed a clear plan for her and they prepared for the hearing. The hearing went as good as could be expected under the circumstances but the preparation along with the plan allowed our daughter to clearly deliver her side of the story. She was able to avoid serious penalties and now will just have a letter to write to the hearing panel.

The outcome would not have been as good without the tireless effort by Joseph especially over a weekend. He was able to help us take the emotions out of the process and be fully prepared. I would highly recommend any parent that needs to help their child with a University Hearing to hire Joseph. It will be the best move you can make if you find yourself in this position with your college age child.
