When Your Academic Future Is At Stake

James A. Baker understands the stakes involved when a college student allegedly runs afoul of campus rules. Suspension or expulsion is often the result of violating campus regulations. Not only are financial investments made by parents or scholarships earned by students at risk, but promising academic careers that could lead to graduate-level pursuits are also at stake.

The Need For Legal Representation During College Disciplinary Proceedings

James A. Baker has appeared on behalf of students at various New York colleges, including Cornell University, Ithaca College, SUNY Cortland, and several community colleges in the area. Each school has its own procedures for launching disciplinary proceedings. A few of the schools do not allow a lawyer to attend the hearing. Other institutions allow active participation.

The sooner Attorney Baker gets involved, the sooner he can build a strong defense to the charges you or your child faces. Common infractions that lead to disciplinary hearings include:

  • Violation of alcohol policies
  • Marijuana possession
  • On-campus assaults and fights
  • Sexual assaults

Attorney James A. Baker will pursue the best outcome by building a strong, fact-based defense. Essentially, he will serve as a buffer between you (the accused) and the school making allegations against you. He will provide sound advice, counter the school's arguments and continuously remain open to negotiation.

If a ruling by a board is not in your favor, he will pursue an appeal within the academic disciplinary system to obtain a just result.
