The team of attorneys at Tully Rinckey have decades of experience handling Title IX cases. Our team routinely services clients throughout the Capital Region to include: Albany, Schenectady, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schoharie, Montgomery, Fulton, Warren, Washington, Greene, Columbia, Ulster, Dutchess, Delaware, Otsego, Herkimer, Hamilton, Essex, Clinton, Franklin and St. Lawrence Counties.

The skilled Title IX lawyers at Tully Rinckey understand that the statute protects both women and men, staff members and students, pregnant individuals and parents in a range of educational institutions—including K-12 schools, technical institutions, colleges and universities, and even libraries and museums. Any allegation of sexual harassment, assault or other misconduct committed at a federally funded school can not only lead to criminal charges, but also have serious implications on the student’s status at the school or a faculty member’s employment. The rules of evidence and procedures in a Title IX proceeding are much different than those in criminal court and our attorneys have extensive experience in handling these cases at schools throughout New York State.

Our team is led by Partner Derrick Hogan who has been recognized by Super Lawyers for his work in the Capital Region. If you are a student or faculty member that has been accused in connection with a Title IX violation, contact us immediately and light us guide you through the process and protect your rights. To schedule an initial consultation for your case, contact us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at (888) 529-4543 or by email at info@tullylegal.com

Faculty Members

Faculty and staff members—or students who also work as teaching assistants or in related positions—who make a claim of sexual harassment or discrimination against an educational institution in an employment context (i.e. denial of promotion due to gender or sexual identity). Coaches, players, and other parties who file a claim against an educational institution in an athletic context (for example, female players who are denied access to training facilities, or female coaches who are paid less than male coaches).

Students

Student defendants accused of sexual assault or/and a violation of their educational institution’s code of conduct. We help these students and their families navigate the school’s complex disciplinary investigation and hearing procedures. Once a student makes a complaint of harassment or sexual assault against another, schools almost always begin an often-complex disciplinary process. Investigations, hearings, sanction boards, student panels, and administrators may all get involved to determine if any party violated the school’s Code of Conduct. Common potential penalties when a student is found “responsible” for a violation range from loss of student housing to full-year suspensions to expulsion.
