Title IX matters, which are controlled by federal civil rights law, involve complaints of sexual misconduct by students, faculty, and staff at public and private schools. Clients often face criminal investigation and prosecution in addition to administrative proceedings at the school or university. Denise represents complainants and respondents/defendants in Title IX proceedings from complaint to final resolution in school and university proceedings. Additionally, she provides concurrent representation in any criminal investigation or proceeding.
On behalf of complainants, Denise uses her knowledge and experience to answer clients’ questions about Title IX and criminal procedure, prepare clients for interviews and testimony, communicate with prosecutors, law enforcement, and others, and obtain civil protective orders. Denise’s work on behalf of complainants allows her clients to focus on school and work knowing that a knowledgeable advocate is informed about all proceedings and available to work with them to obtain the best possible result.
