Title IX Advisor for Hearings in Michigan

An accusation of sexual misconduct on a college campus in Michigan is not a trivial matter. Title IX, a federal law, can become implicated in your case and pressure your school to find you guilty. With a Title IX hearing advisor like Joseph D. Lento, though, you can fight the accusation both in the hearing room and outside of it and prove your innocence. Even if the hearing panel stills finds against you, a Title IX lawyer can still guide you into a successful appeal.

Before the Hearing: Preparing with a Title IX Lawyer

Preparing for a Title IX hearing can be confusing and overwhelming without a Title IX hearing advisor. Attorney Joseph D. Lento can help accused students by:

  • Analyzing the case and determining the best course of defense
  • Providing emotional support throughout the ordeal
  • Gathering evidence of innocence through character and expert witnesses
  • Finding reasons to doubt the accuser's case, including signs that they suffer from a lack of credibility
  • Predicting the lines of questioning that an accused student is likely to face during the hearing, and coaching the proper demeanor and level of conviction to have in response
  • Drafting opening and closing statements that are geared towards the particular members of the hearing panel

Advocacy Outside the Hearing Process

In addition to preparing an accused student for the upcoming Title IX hearing, attorney Joseph D. Lento can advocate for your rights and interests with your school's Title IX office and the college's lawyers. By showing them that you mean to vigorously defend your case, your college can have second thoughts about backing an accusation that is riddled with holes, and might even consider dropping the charges.

At the Hearing: Trial Advocacy to Defend Your Rights

While the preparation pays huge dividends at the Title IX hearing, so can attorney Lento's trial skills. Between professionally orchestrated and delivered opening and closing statements, Joseph D. Lento can draw out important information from witnesses through direct and cross-examinations that show your innocence.

After the Decision: Appealing an Unfair Process

If the hearing panel still decides to find you in violation of Title IX and your Michigan school's code of conduct, there might be grounds for appeal if their decision shows signs of bias, prejudice, or other considerations. Indications that the procedure was unfair are difficult to detect without the experience that a Title IX attorney can bring to your case, though. Attorney Lento can help you see them, and can use them to create an appeal that raises your case to the next level in the process and allows you to defend against the charges, again.
