Higher Education

McCarthy Lebit’s Education attorneys have represented college students in a variety of cases involving matters on and off campus.

We handle matters for students ranging from academic charges of dishonesty and unprofessionalism resulting in suspension or expulsion to other student misconduct matters, including any corresponding criminal proceedings, as well as discrimination cases and disability accommodations for a variety of disorders such as depression, anxiety, ADD, ADHD and other physical and psychological issues.

Our lawyers understand that a college career is an investment in your future. We work with our clients to protect their goals and ensure that the campus proceedings do not derail their progress.

We represent students in all stages of post-secondary education from those in bachelor and associate degree programs all the way through post-doctoral programs and residencies.

When necessary, we collaborate with other practice areas such as Criminal, Cyber & White Collar and Employment to ensure that our clients have the best team behind them to address their legal needs.
