We regularly represent University of Michigan, Michigan State, and Eastern Michigan faculty, staff and students when they need tough education lawyers to stand up for their rights.

Advocacy on Behalf of Educational Professionals and Students

At Nacht Law, we take the rights of teachers, professors, and students very seriously. Our Michigan employment attorneys represent educational and academic employees in:

  • Employment claims
  • Disciplinary proceedings involving student and staff code of conduct violations
  • Tenure/Teacher's Tenure Act and other academic disputes
  • Plagiarism accusations
  • Title IX actions involving exclusion of female students from extracurricular activities
  • Title VII discrimination actions
  • Intellectual property claims
  • Professional licensure restoration
  • Individuals With Disabilities in Education Act (IDEA) claims
  • Bullying and harassment cases

Representing Students and Staff Accused of Misconduct

Our firm has experience representing either staff members or students caught up in cases of sexual misconduct or other wrongdoing. 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 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.

Attorney Jennifer Salvatore recently represented players on a university women's soccer team who alleged that their coach had pursued inappropriate sexual relations. Ms. Salvatore secured a significant settlement from the university. Fellow attorney Nicholas Roumel was a former school board member in the Ann Arbor Public Schools. He has extensive experience on both sides of education law.

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.

Negotiation of Labor Contracts

At Nacht Law, 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 stake holders, and obtaining a favorable environment for beneficial outcomes. In fact, our lawyers regularly handle hearings before the Teacher's Tenure Commission.
