Title IX Advisor for Hearings in Connecticut

In Connecticut, college students who are accused of sexual misconduct will face a Title IX hearing and potential sanctions. Because Title IX can implicate a college's federal funding if these allegations are not aggressively pursued, accused students in Connecticut can feel like the Title IX investigation and hearing process are both stacked against them. In many cases, they are right. By hiring an attorney and Title IX hearing advisor like Joseph D. Lento, you can take a stand, enforce your rights, protect your future, and drastically improve your ability to overcome a process designed to find you guilty.

A Title IX Hearing Advisor Helps You Prepare

One of the most overwhelming parts about being accused of sexual misconduct in Connecticut and having a hearing date set for the future is preparing your defense. You know that it is important to gather evidence of your innocence, but knowing where to start is a different matter. A Title IX hearing advisor like Joseph D. Lento can help by:

  • Planning your best line of defense, based on the nature of the accusation and your interests and circumstances
  • Gathering character witnesses and evidence of the accuser's poor credibility
  • Lining up expert witnesses to explain to the Title IX hearing panel how things really work
  • Writing effective opening and closing arguments that are geared towards the members of the Title IX hearing panel
  • Predicting the lines of questioning you are likely to face during the hearing and coaching you to be credible and have a trustworthy demeanor
  • Providing strong emotional support during this difficult and stressful time

A Lawyer's Skills Can Win the Hearing

While a Title IX hearing advisor can help you prepare for the hearing, you still need to execute those plans in front of the hearing panel. The advocacy and trial skills of a lawyer like Joseph D. Lento can be a huge help. By cross-examining the accuser and their supporting witnesses, the weaknesses and inconsistencies in their testimony can make it clear that you are innocent. Additionally, the opening and closing statements can both set the stage and close the door on any uncertainty about your case, highlighting your innocence to the hearing panel.

Appealing an Adverse Outcome

Nevertheless, the bias inherent in some of the Title IX hearing procedures can make even the clearest case difficult to win. This bias, though, is rarely hidden when it is so prevalent. Attorney Lento can spot it and use it as the grounds for an appeal, allowing you to present your case again to a more legitimate hearing body.
