Our Academic Investigations and Student Rights practice is all encompassing. We not only represent victims of abuse and harassment and defend individuals facing such accusations, but we have also been engaged to conduct independent investigations into misconduct on behalf of academic institutions.
Suffering abuse or harassment, or being accused of such, can be an unsettling and confusing experience. You need to know your rights and our lawyers at Butters Brazilian LLP can help. We are equipped to guide you through the process and provide you with effective counsel.
Protecting your rights is essential. If you or someone close to you are facing accusations of misconduct at school or criminal charges related to activity at school, you need a lawyer who can help you navigate the specific rules and processes of these institutions. Alternatively, if you or your student have been abused, you need support and a lawyer who can help you raise your concerns and seek redress.
In Massachusetts, secondary schools, colleges, and universities must investigate allegations of bullying, misconduct and sexual harassment against staff and students. Federal law and practice under Title IX have expanded and require adherence to a specific protocol.
The lawyers at Butters Brazilian LLP are well versed in school disciplinary proceedings and criminal defense, as well as pursuing investigations of bullying and misconduct, including under the expanded regulations of Title IX. Our lawyers have been hired to independently conduct several school-based investigations.
