Why do you do university sexual misconduct work?

I do call sexual misconduct work because it's where I can make a tremendous difference in the lives of people who are falsely accused and also their families in such matters. By nature, as an attorney, one often fights against injustice. I had a case many, many, many years ago, it was a criminal case, and this was in the early stages of Title IX, after President Obama had issued his Dear Colleague letter.

Campuses were just starting to aggressively pursue sexual misconduct allegations. I realized that there was a need for somebody to stand up for the little guy, because in such an instance, often you're dealing with colleges and administrators and people that are just wholly unsuited to making such determinations on people's lives. After handling hundreds upon hundreds upon hundreds of Title IX cases across the United States, I've developed an expertise in such matters.

My track record, I am extremely proud of, because I put my blood, sweat, and tears, preferably as few tears as possible. By the nature of such cases though, I put my blood and sweat and at times tears into such cases. They are emotionally involved cases. When you're falsely accused, or when you need somebody to stand up to the powers that be, I'm proud to be able to serve in that role. I'm also proud to have helped many young people and their families over the years and that's why I continue to fight the good fight.
