Who We Are
The only legal team focused on and dedicated to representing families, survivors, and others in lawsuits and other legal proceedings nationwide involving fraternity hazing, serious personal injury, wrongful death, gun violence, sexual assault, Title IX violations, and other misconduct in schools.
We established the legal specialty, going so far as to create the first and only national school violence practice groups within the American Association for Justice (“AAJ”) and the National Crime Victim Bar Association (“NCVBA”).
Our legal team has the training, experience, and confidence necessary to overcome tough legal obstacles and well-heeled lawyers. If we 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.
The law firm worked hard to put this team together for two principal reasons: We believe in our clients, and we believe our clients’ pursuit of justice must be supported by intelligent, trained, passionate firepower.
Parents and victims justly demand that comprehensive changes be imposed upon those who caused or failed to prevent their trauma. We have 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.
