Title IX Advisor for Hearings in Delaware

Being accused of sexual misconduct in college – whether it is for rape, sexual harassment, or stalking – can be a traumatizing experience because so much of your future is at stake and the process can seem designed to find you at fault. If you have been accused of a Title IX violation for sexual misconduct in Delaware, having a Title IX hearing advisor like Joseph D. Lento at your side throughout the process is absolutely essential to get a favorable outcome and protect your future.

Preparing Your Case Before the Hearing

The time between receiving notice that you are being accused of committing a Title IX violation and the hearing date, itself, is very stressful and also very important. This is when you have to prepare for the hearing by amassing the evidence that shows your innocence or challenges the specifics of the accusation. A Title IX advisor can help you through this difficult and critical juncture by:

  • Analyzing your specific situation and determining the best defense strategy
  • Conducting an independent investigation to gather evidence in your favor, including gathering expert witnesses on your behalf
  • Preparing the presentation of the evidence as well as the opening and closing arguments
  • Coaching you on how to be a credible witness by predicting and preparing for the questions you are likely to be asked
  • Showing you how to act with conviction during the Title IX hearing
  • Providing the emotional and psychological support that you need throughout the stressful time

Presenting Your Case During the Hearing

While a Title IX defense lawyer is essential for helping accused students prepare for their Title IX hearing, the presence of an attorney at the hearing itself is even more crucial.

With Title IX defense lawyer Joseph D. Lento at your side for the hearing, you can count on him to personally deliver the opening and closing arguments, question witnesses on your behalf, cross-examine the complainant's witnesses, and throw doubt on the allegations you are facing. With so much at stake, bringing in a professional to advocate on your behalf in front of a difficult hearing body can drastically increase the odds that you win at the hearing and protect your future.

Appealing an Adverse Outcome

If the Title IX hearing board decides that you committed a Title IX violation of sexual misconduct, a Title IX advisor can provide valuable input on the next steps. Appealing the case is possible, but there needs to be a reason for lodging an appeal. With the experience of handling numerous Title IX cases before, attorney Joseph D. Lento knows what to look for during the hearing to find the signs of bias that can serve as the grounds for an appeal, and then craft the appeal documents and plan for the next step.
