Campus Disciplinary Defense Team Vindicates Student in Assault Case

Jun 20 19

Our Campus Disciplinary Defense team successfully vindicated a community college student who was accused of sexual assault. The student enlisted attorneys Jill Yonkers and Adam Brasky before the initial interview with the college occurred, which proved to be a key to success in the case.  

“College misconduct processes are stacked against students from the outset. Our client was not given written notice of the charges against him. We, as his attorneys, were instructed not to participate in his interview. We were told to sit there, ‘like a potted plant,’” Yonkers explained.

Despite the college’s instruction, Yonkers and Brasky reviewed the institution’s policies and procedures in great detail beforehand, helped their client prepare for the interview, and were able to help the client overcome what could have been a life-altering outcome.

Securing representation early on is critical in campus disciplinary defense cases. If you’re a student, parent, or a friend of someone facing campus disciplinary action, get in touch with our team.
