Title IX Advisor for Hearings in Virginia

If you are a college student in Virginia, facing an accusation that you committed an act of sexual misconduct can be the worst thing to happen to you while you are in school. These are serious allegations, and often implicate Title IX, a federal law that prohibits sexual discrimination in the higher education setting. Your future can be at stake. Hiring Title IX advisor Joseph D. Lento to represent you before, during, and after the hearing can prevent your school from violating your rights and finding you guilty of something you did not do.

Preparing for a Title IX Hearing in Virginia

A Title IX advisor can be a huge help to students who have been accused of sexual misconduct in the lead up to the Title IX hearing. By conducting an independent investigation of the facts, an advisor, like attorney Joseph D. Lento, can find crucial pieces of evidence that work in your defense. Additionally, a Title IX advisor can help on a variety of other fronts, as well:

  • Devising the best defense strategy based on the factual circumstances of your case and your particular concerns and interests
  • Obtaining expert testimony for use during the hearing
  • Drafting and honing effective opening and closing statements
  • Evidence preparation
  • Witness coaching, including training an accused student to deliver answers to expected questions in an honest and credible demeanor and with conviction
  • Emotional and psychological support for uncertain or nervous students

When schools pursuing a Title IX violation find that the accused student has retained a lawyer to help prepare their case and defend them at the hearing, the tone of the investigation often changes dramatically.

At the Hearing

Having the legal representation of a Title IX advisor like Joseph D. Lento is even more important during the hearing. This is where school officials are most likely to look past clear evidence of innocence in order to find an accused student guilty of wrongdoing in order to protect the interests of the school.

By delivering your opening and closing statements in a professional and straightforward manner, eliciting witness testimony that is favorable to your case, and cross-examining the witnesses behind the accusation, a Title IX attorney can raise the kind of defense that you need to protect your future.

Appealing a Bad Outcome

Despite the most vigorous defense, some hearings still end badly for the accused student. However, the strength of your case during the hearing can make it clear that the hearing process itself was biased and stilted against you. With evidence of an unfair hearing process, a Title IX advisor can guide you through the appeals process to ensure your rights are protected.
