Representing Student Rights At Administrative Hearings

If a college student is facing criminal charges in New York, they could also be facing possible suspension or expulsion from their school. Dealing with both criminal charges and an administrative punishment can be stressful. It can also seriously impact your future.

It is essential to contact a knowledgeable attorney as soon as possible to represent you at administrative, disciplinary or Title IX hearings. With career experience as an adjunct professor, attorney Michael Cimasi can put you at the advantage. He understands the mindset of college students, as well as the inner workings of universities, and uses that knowledge to provide you with the best possible representation.

You have the right to fight the charges brought against you, and there are too many hidden consequences to pleading guilty. At Cimasi Law Office, we are committed to protecting your rights through every step of your case.

Dedicated Expulsion Defense

Although administrative hearings do not handle criminal charges the same way the state does, you or a loved one may still face considerable consequences. Universities have a broad range of power and a much lower standard of proof of wrongdoing. If a student has breached the school code of conduct, they could face:

  • Suspension
  • Expulsion
  • Admonitions
  • Dismissal from academic programs, including honors or advanced classes

That is why it is necessary to contact an attorney so you are aware of all of your options and rights. Mr. Cimasi has experience representing students in all types of administrative proceedings, including Title IX hearings regarding allegations of sexual assault. We always strive for the best possible results available to you, fighting diligently on your behalf.

You only have the rights you can protect. Take action as soon as possible to defend your education and future.
