Representing Students and Staff Falsely Accused of Misconduct
David Nacht has extensive experience representing staff members, faculty and students caught up in cases of sexual misconduct, intellectual dishonesty or other wrongdoing. Please see our defense site if you need help.
These cases may involve coaches and players, professors and students, or students and students. Allegations of misconduct can lead to serious ramifications, from termination/job loss to disciplinary proceedings. This is particularly tricky for public education and higher education teachers who may be accused of harassment after saying the wrong thing in class, etc.
Our Michigan and Ohio education lawyers have the advantage of working with our criminal defense attorneys to handle cases involving criminal conduct such as assault, sexual assault, harassment, and failure to report a disciplinary or criminal charge.
Individualized Education Plans (IEPs)
Many students have learning disabilities that prevent them from excelling and may even lead to misconduct. Under the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), a parent has the right to ask a school for an individualized education plan (IEP) or specific accommodations to help the child achieve at the same level as other children. We can help you request an IEP for your child and meet with the school to develop an effective plan.

At NachtLaw, our attorneys negotiate contracts and provide educational unions and labor organizations with the kind of advice that gets results at the bargaining table. We counsel clients with regard to strategy in collective bargaining negotiations, strategic relationships with key stakeholders, and obtaining a favorable environment for beneficial outcomes. In fact, our lawyers regularly handle hearings before the Teacher's Tenure Commission.
