Legal and Consulting Services for colleges, universities, elementary and secondary schools.

We provide a full range of legal and consulting services for elementary and secondary schools and institutions of higher education with a specialization in compliance.  We partner with school districts and institutions to assist with campus-specific training and policy drafting and review, independent investigations, assistance with Office of Civil Rights and other federal investigations, and litigation. Our services expand to representation in any legal matter faced by institutions.

Helping You Take an Active Compliance Approach

We are here to assist your institution in taking a proactive approach to compliance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and the Violence Against Women Act Reauthorization amendments to the Jeanne Clery Act, and related state and federal regulations. We understand the demand placed on colleges, universities, elementary and secondary schools to meet legal mandates.

Our Signature Service, Special Counsel

Our unique service includes year-round legal assistance during sexual misconduct, relationship violence and stalking investigations. Training and solid policies are important legal mandates for each campus or school district; however, institutional compliance is only as strong as how a campus or school district handles allegations of sexual misconduct, stalking or relationship violence. A misstep during this time can be detrimental, negatively impacting the good will of the institution as well as the lives of all of those involved. As Special Counsel, we work with your Title IX team in a belt and suspenders approach to create an effective, timely, compassionate and legally compliant response to each and every situation that arises.

As Chief of Police for campus law enforcement, I worked with Courtney through numerous legal issues over an 8 year period. She provided sound guidance during sensitive employment and compliance related matters that arose as well as assistance in policy drafting. I highly recommend her services.
