Michigan Title IX Attorney
Do you need a Michigan Title IX Attorney?
Title IX is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any educational program or activity that receives federal funding. This includes most schools, including private institutions and grades K-12. The law addresses sexual harassment, sexual violence, or any gender-based discrimination that may deny a person access to educational benefits and opportunities.
It is the responsibility of the school to make sure all students have equal access to education, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, or gender identity. Sexual harassment and sexual violence are forms of gender discrimination that are prohibited by Title IX, including when the incident(s) occur off-campus or involve people who are not students.
If you or a loved one have experienced this form of discrimination, or think you may have, it is time to seek the assistance of a Michigan Title IX attorney. The Fierberg National Law Group is here to help. For over 25 years we have been the only legal team focused on and dedicated to representing families, survivors, and others in lawsuits involving sexual violence, Title IX violations, and other misconduct in schools. No matter where you are located, our lawyers create, then lead legal teams that merge our national expertise with local attorneys to get you the best legal representation.
What sets our Title IX lawyers apart?
We believe that survivors of title IX violations have meaningful options for seeking justice. However, this pursuit of justice and meaningful resolution must be supported by intelligent, trained, and passionate legal firepower. The National Title IX movement expertise, along with the sexual and gender violence training of Cari Simon, Monica Beck, Chloe Neely, Lisa Cloutier, Iliana Konidaris, and Carly Mee, make us uniquely effective counsel for survivors of sexual and gender violence in K-12 schools, colleges and universities, fraternities, sororities, sports teams, camps, scouting, group outings, and the workplace.
In addition, we have unique, close relationships with the country’s leading non-profit advocacy groups, with whom we regularly confer, and at times, “partner” with on cases, to increase a victim’s ability to obtain justice and cause systematic change. Such groups include:
- National Crime Victim Law Institute
- Clery Center
- Public Justice Foundation
- Know Your IX
- Futures Without Violence
- Harvard Gender Violence Program
- National Crime Victims Bar Association
- Women’s Resource Center for Traverse City, Michigan
- National Center for Victims of Crime
If you or a loved one needs the representation of a civil rights lawyer, stop searching for “attorneys near me.” The Fierberg National Law Group has the training, experience, and confidence necessary to overcome tough legal obstacles and well-heeled lawyers so that survivors can regain the upper hand and begin the process of putting their lives back together. To date, we have obtained and collected over $330 million in verdicts and settlements for our clients.
In addition to obtaining financial settlements for our clients, our mission is to create systemic changes through our work. Parents and victims justly demand that comprehensive changes be imposed upon those who caused or failed to prevent their trauma. Our team has sought and secured enforceable concessions from defendants designed to make institutions better managed and safer, allowing personal legacies to endure. We have compelled schools to make their campuses safe by investigating claims of sexual assault, disclosing risk information to the public, holding fair and lawful hearings, punishing perpetrators, and protecting and accommodating survivors by waiving tuition and housing costs, implementing academic accommodations and stay-away orders, revising victims’ grades and transcripts, complying with Title IX, state law, and university regulations, and generally, act responsibly towards victims of such tragedies.
