Cumming & Dahlonega Title IX Lawyer
Fighting for Your Education & Future:
Title IX is meant to provide protections to college and university students
against gender discrimination and various forms of sex offenses on campus.
However, seemingly more often than not, Title IX is actually used to bring
false accusations against students and dole out punishment quickly and
separate from any official legal proceedings.
If you have been accused of a
sex-related violation by a fellow college or university student, you need to act quickly to
protect your education and reputation. The Education Amendments Act of
Title IX allows you to seek legal counsel and request a fair hearing before
any penalties are used against you. I, Attorney Andrew J. Richman of Richman
Law Firm in Cumming and Dahlonega, can help you by providing the same

Title IX Processes Favor the Accuser
Accusations against a student brought forth through Title IX are so problematic
because they begin a process that does not belong to the criminal justice
system. That is to say, you will not be brought before a criminal court
for judgement and sentencing. Instead, Title IX processes are purely administrative
and handled by the administrative members of the university or college,
typically board members.
When you are accused of a sex-related crime by another university student,
you will typically be notified by the faculty later that you are being
targeted by a Title IX investigation. You will not have much time to react
and plan your defense, though. Administrators move quickly to conclude
Title IX cases because the school could lose federal funding if a case
is mishandled. The end result is the accused are punished swiftly more
often than not, even if there is no evidence of misconduct.
Disciplinary actions that could be used against you:
- Removal from certain classes
- Expulsion from the campus
- Temporary suspension from all classes
- Degree or transcript withholding
- Forced “no contact” with certain students
- Barred access to common areas
