Title IX Advisors
Title IX Advisors in Michigan and Across the Nation
Survivors wanting to file a Title IX lawsuit have meaningful options for seeking justice, regaining the upper-hand, and beginning the process of putting life back together. The Fierberg National Law Group’s Title IX law experience – paired with the national Title IX movement expertise of Cari Simon, Monica Beck, Chloe Neely, Lisa Cloutier, Iliana Konidaris, and Carly Mee– make us uniquely effective advocates and Title IX advisors for people who have suffered sex-based discrimination in schools, universities, or other educational institutions.
How Do I Know if My Rights Have Been Violated?
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. Title IX addresses sexual harassment, sexual violence, or any gender-based discrimination that may deny a person access to educational benefits and opportunities. Under the law, student-athletes and athletics programs are also protected based on the fact that athletic programs receive federal funding.
While some Title IX violations – such as rape, sexual assault, or gender-based violence – may be more easily identifiable, other violations are more subtle. This is why it is so important to seek out an experienced Title IX lawyer who can help you understand your Title IX rights. The Title IX advisors on our team at The Fierberg National Law Group understand the challenges that come with filing claims against institutions that are more interested in maintaining their reputation and often hide behind well-heeled lawyers who resort to blaming and shaming the victims.

We do this work for two reasons: We believe in our clients, and we believe our clients’ pursuit of justice must be supported by intelligent, trained, passionate firepower – no matter where you are located.

In addition, If our Title IX advisors are not licensed to practice in the state where tragedy has occurred, we obtain special permission to practice and associate ourselves with qualified local trial counsel – combining local attorneys with national expertise – giving you the best legal representation.
We have served as lead counsel in sexual assault lawsuits, administrative complaints, mediation, and school disciplinary proceedings in numerous states, including Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
