Title IX Defense Attorneys in New York City
Protecting the Rights of Students
If a student is accused of sexual assault on a college or university campus, the school will conduct an investigation and hold a hearing to determine whether or not the claims are substantiated. Because educational institutions are concerned with protecting themselves, they often harshly pursue these types of cases, and innocent students could be punished.
If you or a loved one was accused of sexual misconduct at their school, our lawyers at Lebedin Kofman LLP are here to provide the legal representation you need. We have extensive legal experience and will guide you through every step of the process.

Title IX laws apply to colleges and universities that receive federal funding. These institutions are under pressure to demonstrate that they take allegations of sexual assault and harassment seriously, and as such, they have a tendency to side with the alleged victim.
A student found guilty of Title IX-covered offenses, could be:
- Suspended or expelled from school
- Subject to a tarnished permanent record
- Ineligible for scholarships
- Removed from athletics
- Rejected from other colleges or universities
If the school affords the student a disciplinary hearing, they have the opportunity to present their side of the story and challenge the accusations. With so much at stake in these matters, it’s important that the student have a lawyer on their side who can advise them about how to proceed. Our team knows how to conduct thorough investigations of these types of cases and defend against allegations.
