Title IX Advisor for Hearings in Alabama

College students in Alabama can be accused of violating Title IX through an act of sexual misconduct. These cases are severe because Title IX pressures colleges in Alabama to vigorously prosecute the case, or risk losing their federal funding. The result is often a hearing process that gives short shrift to a student's due process rights.

Joseph D. Lento is a Title IX hearing advisor and defense lawyer who can fight on your behalf and ensure that your side of the story gets heard.

Preparing for the Title IX Hearing

Preparing for the Title IX hearing is critically important. It is also overwhelming if you are trying to do it alone. A Title IX hearing advisor like attorney Lento can help to:

  • Conduct an independent investigation into the allegations to find evidence of your innocence
  • Determine the best course of action, based on the facts and your personal interests
  • Create an effective opening and closing argument that aims to persuade the particular members of the hearing panel
  • Predict the questions you are likely to face during the hearing and identify traps or pitfalls
  • Coach you to deliver your answers with conviction, integrity, and a trustworthy demeanor
  • Provide the emotional support that even the most stoic accused student finds useful during this frustrating and intense process

Additionally, attorney Lento can seek out negotiations with your college's staff attorneys and its Title IX office to see if a deal can be made. In some cases, these negotiations lead to charges being dismissed as the college realizes that you mean to vigorously defend your rights and that their case is riddled with doubts.

Treating the Title IX Hearing Like a Trial

The Title IX hearing is where attorney Joseph D. Lento's trial advocacy skills are on display. From strong opening and closing statements to intense cross-examinations, attorney Lento can elicit evidence from even hostile witnesses that tend to show your innocence or the accuser's lack of credibility.

Appealing an Adverse Outcome

Despite the clearest evidence of your innocence, a biased process can still lead to a finding of guilt. However, many of these hearings show signs of a process that is so unfair that it can impinge your due process rights. With an eye for these signs, Title IX hearing advisor Joseph D. Lento can draft an appeal that uses them to get your case reheard in front of a more neutral tribunal.
