Why Retain Nationwide Attorney Help

If your high school student faces allegations of Title IX sexual misconduct, retaining a skilled and experienced Title IX defense attorney with a national reputation is your best possible move. Retaining a local criminal defense attorney or civil litigator who doesn't usually practice high school Title IX defense simply won't do. Here are several reasons why you should instead retain a national Title IX defense attorney:

Knowledge. First, your student needs a national high school Title IX defense attorney's knowledge. Title IX law is federal, not state, law, when most attorneys know state rather than federal law. Title IX law is also partly statutory, partly regulatory, and partly case law. Title IX law is also constantly changing. Your student needs a Title IX defense attorney who knows all of the currently applicable federal law;

Skill. Second, your student needs a national high school Title IX defense attorney's skills. High school Title IX rules and procedures are not like going to court. They are instead administrative procedures, often obscurely defined. Your student needs a Title IX defense attorney whose skill is navigating those rules and procedures for your student's best possible defense;

Experience. Third, your student needs a national high school Title IX defense attorney's experience. High school administrative proceedings have their own unwritten customs and conventions. Those customs and conventions can be the key to unlocking a successful Title IX defense. Local court litigation attorneys don't typically know high school Title IX customs and conventions. A national high school Title IX defense attorney's experience has taught the attorney those customs and conventions critical for a successful Title IX defense;

Reputation. Finally, your student needs a national high school Title IX defense attorney's reputation. High school Title IX administrative proceedings typically involve high school officials with only limited experience in appropriate investigation, evaluation, and resolution of contested Title IX matters. Those high school officials may look to your national Title IX defense attorney for the creative, win-win resolutions that both protect the school's interests while preserving your student's future.

When you retain national high school Title IX defense attorney Joseph D. Lento, your student gets the knowledge, skill, and experience your student needs for the best defense. Trust the national high school Title IX defense attorney who has preserved the education and future of hundreds of students nationwide. Your student's location nationwide does not matter. National high school Title IX defense attorney Joseph Lento is available for your student's aggressive and effective representation.

What's at Stake

If your high school student faces allegations of Title IX sexual misconduct, then your student may have everything on the line. Don't underestimate the impact of high school Title IX charges on your student's future. Title IX misconduct may mean that your student will suffer expulsion from the school. An interruption in your student's high school education can adversely affect your student's academic development, athletic competitions, and social development. But the stakes are higher than simply whether your student can earn a high school diploma at the same high school. Expulsion from school could bar your student from enrolling at other schools, leave an indelible mark against your student, and affect your student's academic and career opportunities. Your student could lose scholarships, honors, and awards, miss out on college admission, and lose job and career opportunities. Your student has so much at stake when facing high school Title IX allegations that your best move is to retain national high school Title IX defense attorney Joseph D. Lento and the Title IX team at the Lento Law Firm.

What a National Title IX Defense Attorney Does

When you retain national high school Title IX defense attorney Joseph D. Lento and the Title IX team at the Lento Law Firm, you get skilled services that other attorneys who lack Title IX experience cannot generally effectively provide. National high school Title IX defense attorney Joseph Lento and his Title IX defense team provide:

Thorough Investigation. An effective defense requires not only knowing any evidence on which the school bases the charges but also the evidence that would exonerate your student or mitigate the charge. Your national Title IX defense attorney will discover that evidence both from the school and from other sources;

Effective Communication. An effective defense requires accurate, firm, timely, and effective communications with school officials. Your national Title IX defense attorney will let the school know that your student intends to defend and defeat the charge;

Sound Evaluation. An effective defense requires sensitive and sound evaluation of the Title IX charges. Your national Title IX defense attorney will let you and your student know the strengths and weaknesses of the Title IX charges so that you and your student can proceed while well informed;

Strategic Negotiation. An effective defense often depends on strategic negotiation with school officials around creative, informal resolutions. Your national Title IX defense attorney will show the school that what's best for your student can also be good for the school;

Aggressive Representation. If your student's matter goes to a formal hearing, an effective defense requires aggressive cross-examination and other advocacy skills. Your national Title IX defense attorney will exercise the necessary advocacy skills to expose the weaknesses in the school's evidence and case;

Alternative Resolution. If your student has already suffered Title IX misconduct findings, then an effective defense may require an articulate appeal. If your student has already lost an appeal, then an effective defense may still be possible through alternative resolution with other school or district officials. If no such resolution is possible, then litigation may be a last resort.
