Advocacy For Students Facing School Reprimands
At Konta Georges & Buza P.C. we represent students throughout New York who have been charged by their schools’ internal disciplinary procedures.
Using our skills as former prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys, our lawyers zealously defend our clients who face punishments such as suspension or expulsion. We are keenly aware that a finding of responsibility could erase years of hard work by the student and complicate their futures immensely.
Extensive Knowledge In This Area Of Law
Our team has litigated cases involving both state schools and elite private universities. Each institution has their own rules and procedures, which we can best advise you on. Our experience in these cases gives us the institutional knowledge to provide you or your loved one the information necessary at each step in the process to ensure the best possible outcome.
Guidance Through Each Stage Of The Process
These cases are often a huge distraction to the student as they can take many months to resolve. We are mindful of this challenge and do not just provide legal representation but we will guide the student through this process so you or your loved one can focus on their academic responsibilities.
Whether brought under Title IX or the school’s individual disciplinary process, our attorneys have the experience, the insight and the temperament to help ensure that the right decision is made at each step of this process.
We have resolved these cases quickly upon the charges being brought and have litigated them through lengthy discovery phases and to a hearing. Our lawyers have done these hearings remotely and in-person where witness testimony was taken and the accuser cross-examined.
