Protecting the Rights of Accused Clients in Title IX Cases
Spodek Law Group understands the severe consequences of being accused of a Title IX violation, especially in today’s academic climate, where institutions are under increasing pressure to show zero tolerance for gender-based discrimination. If you are accused, your career or status as a student may be in jeopardy. You may face harsh discipline, loss of employment, or expulsion. With over 30 years of experience in criminal defense, our team, led by Attorney Todd Spodek, can provide you with a thorough and precise defense to disprove the allegations against you.
What is a Title IX Violation?
Title IX is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in educational institutions that receive federal funding. It covers a wide range of gender-based discrimination, including sexual harassment, assault, lax administration policies, grading, and enforcement of school rules.
Protecting Faculty Members from Unfounded Charges
Even faculty members, who are tasked with educating the next generation, can be unfairly accused of sex discrimination. The consequences of such accusations can be dire, including the loss of academic tenure, employment, and reputation. That’s why our experienced team at Spodek Law Group is committed to providing aggressive defense for faculty members facing Title IX charges. We will gather and present evidence to disprove discriminatory intent and protect your career and reputation.

The Benefits of Hiring an Attorney as Your Adviser
If you are accused of a Title IX violation, both the accused (respondent) and accuser (complainant) have the right to bring an adviser to the hearing. While non-attorney advisers provided by a school may offer basic training in Title IX matters, they may not have the scope of knowledge or trial experience necessary to provide you with the best possible defense. By hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney, such as those at Spodek Law Group, you can benefit from:
Confidentiality: Attorney-client privilege ensures that any information you share with your adviser will remain confidential and cannot be used against you in any subsequent criminal investigation or civil lawsuit.
Scope of Knowledge: Our attorneys have a deep understanding of both Title IX proceedings and criminal law, allowing us to guide you through the entire process and prevent future negative consequences.
Trial Experience: As experienced litigators, our attorneys are skilled in questioning witnesses and presenting evidence, which can make or break your case. We will work tirelessly to ensure that you receive a fair and just outcome.
