University And College Administrators And Staff

At NachtLaw, we have been representing university administrators in Michigan and Ohio from vice presidents and deans to entry-level administrative assistants for close to 20 years. A substantial portion of the firm’s income has historically and regularly been made from our work on behalf of college and university administrators and staff.

College And University Professors

The firm has had tremendous success and much experience representing university professors. David Nacht, the firm founder, is the son of a professor and the husband of a professor. The firm is unusually sophisticated in its understanding of academic norms and culture.

Serving The Needs Of College And University Students

Victims of sexual assault and sexual harassment need an advocate in their corner. Attorney David Nacht recently represented a woman student through a university process resulting in the removal of her harasser from campus while she was in attendance. This is a time flux for sex harassment and campus rape. On the one hand, colleges and universities have implemented processes to protect students. On the other hand, the culture of regular harassment and assaults remains prevalent. At NachtLaw, our experience with educational law is unmatched in navigating university processes on behalf of students. We stay current with changes in the law, and we maintain excellent relationships with university administrators who handle these delicate and painful inquiries. Additionally, David Nacht regularly represent students seeking disability accommodations. Our success rate and our sensitivity to our clients’ needs have garnered us acclaim.
