What College & Academic Disciplinary Attorney Richard Roxin Can Do For You
Attorney Richard Roxin has years of experience handling academic disciplinary cases. He can help you understand whether it is in your best interest to contest the charges, or whether you should focus on minimizing the penalty. Richard understands how damaging serious academic violations can be to a student’s record and fights hard to contest charges when a student is innocent. In cases where a charge cannot reasonably be contested, Richard can help you to negotiate the most lenient penalty possible.
The role an attorney can play depends on the procedural rules put in place by the school, whether a school is public or private, and the type of offense that the student is charged with. Generally, students at public schools have stronger due process rights than students at private institutions. Students facing disciplinary action from public schools generally have a right to have an attorney present at any disciplinary hearings.
How active an attorney can be in these hearings depends on school policies, but in most cases a student can confer with their attorney throughout the hearing. In some cases, an attorney can negotiate directly with a disciplinary board, but in other cases this is not possible. Richard carefully prepares for disciplinary hearings and vigorously represents his clients to ensure that the process is fair.
At some private institutions, however, it is not possible to have an attorney present at hearings under the school’s policies. In these cases, attorney Richard Roxin meets with clients to help them understand the school’s substantive and procedural rules to prepare them for a hearing beforehand.
