If you or your child is facing disciplinary action from a university, then you should contact an attorney immediately. You and your child’s future depends on it...
Pursuing higher education is a pinnacle in western culture; one that is both celebrated and strongly encouraged. College can be a highly beneficial institution, instilling knowledge in the next generation while giving them the skills and understanding to be productive and successful individuals within our society. However, in addition to all the benefits and personal development that college has to offer, also comes the thrill of young adults being on their own for the first time in their lives. Parties, games, and activities are in abundance, and things can easily get out of hand. Some students may find themselves under disciplinary action by their university, facing allegations of academic dishonesty or even sexual assault. If you are a student, or the parent(s) of a student, who is facing disciplinary action by your college or university, then please do not hesitate to contact a university discipline attorney right away.
Unfortunately, many students that face accusations do not realize the severity of the situation they find themselves in until it is too late. Many who face accusations will speak to school officials on their own. Not fully understanding the severity of the situation, most students will not even think to consult with a highly-trained, experienced attorney since their natural instinct is to defend their honor by telling their side of the story. When this happens, students can find themselves receiving the short end of the stick. What seemed to be an honest mistake or misunderstanding has now led to expulsion or criminal charges. Regardless of the seriousness or severity, if you must attend your school’s disciplinary hearing, it is imperative that you do so with your university discipline attorney by your side. A ruling against you can potentially have a devastating impact on the rest of your life.
Many educational institutions have a vested interest in preserving the reputation of their school, which can increase the harshness and severity of the discipline the school administers. Furthermore, under the Clery Act, the United States Department of Education can pursue fines, and it also has the authority to withhold federal loans from any college or institution that fails to report a crime that occurs on or near its campuses. This adds increased pressure on colleges to enact swift, and often times, harsh justice on the accused student, especially students facing allegations of criminal acts, even in cases where the student(s) is innocent.
With stakes this high there is no question that it is imperative to consult with a university discipline attorney immediately. Both the school and its officials can be prejudicially biased, which means that without a highly-skilled attorney you may have no chance in effectively defending your case.
