Good Judgment. Wise Counsel. Aggressive Representation.

Our Success Stories

Title IX Defense – University employees can take advantage of Title IX complaint processes when experiencing sexual harassment at work. David Nacht won a sex harassment hearing for a 50-year-old female staff person resulting in the resignation of a dean at a midwestern public university. His client was a staff person who worked closely with the Dean. What makes the case particularly remarkable is that Nacht’s client felt too emotionally upset to participate, and Nacht won anyway. Sometimes, cross-examination can win a case– in hearings and in court.

Executive Severance Package Negotiations – Attorney David Nacht negotiated an increase in a severance and options package for an executive of $500,000 above the initial severance package.

University Professor – NachtLaw attorneys David Nacht and Grace Cretcher won a hearing and obtained a reversal of the non-renewal of a university professor by a grievance panel.

Reinstated within 24 Hours of Suspension – Our Client was suspended from his college after a Complainant reported unwanted sexual contact. He was not informed where or when the touching occurred and was suspended from school without an opportunity to defend himself. We wrote the college and had him reinstated within 24 hours. He meaningfully defended himself with our help and will complete his academic program with nothing on his record.

Text Record that Vindicated Our Client – We represented a graduate student instructor who was accused of sexually assaulting a student. When he failed to commit to a relationship with her, she accused him of sexually assaulting her and violating a do not contact order. Our team combed a text record with over 6000 texts and found evidence of her requesting and consenting to each of the alleged events where she was assaulted. Our client was found not responsible.

Group Sex and Proof of Sobriety – Our clients, male student athletes, had been accused of sexually assaulting another student athlete after she met them at a party. She alleged that she drank too much to consent. She filed a Title IX complaint with the college and filed a personal protection order in court against our clients. Video footage we secured from the college and testimony from several witnesses on the night in question vindicated our clients. Her behavior in the footage showed that she was sober and could consent. Our Clients were found not responsible and defeated the personal protection order.

Success in a Case of Alleged Assault from Years Ago – We represented a college student who had a long-term relationship with the Complainant and the two had plans of building a future together. When the plans fell apart, the Complainant accused him of assaulting her the first time the pair had sex, years prior. After being told we could not provide text evidence to the college, we fought back and were able to provide texts to the panel hearing the case. Our client was found not responsible.

Vulgar Doesn’t Always Mean Harassment – A supervisor we represented was accused of engaging in sexual harassment of her employees due to alleged jokes and comments. Although there had been unprofessional comments, we worked with our client to find numerous witnesses who said the comments were not offensive, sexual, or harassing in nature. After a hearing, our client was found not responsible, kept her job and returned to work.
