The Role of a Marietta Title IX Defense Attorney

Being accused of a Title IX offense is a serious charge. Increasingly, schools are under pressure to carry out swift investigations and quickly dish out punishments. Unfortunately, however, schools are not always so diligent about defending the rights of those accused of the offense. 

The Title IX investigation process can be extremely invasive. Investigators may interview you, your friends, classmates, teammates, colleagues, and others. Your texts, photos, and private documents might be used as evidence. You might also have to build your own defense and present your case at your school’s Title IX hearing. This is an intimidating process. However, you do not have to go through it alone. 

At Frye Law Group, our founder, Attorney Kim Frye, is a former prosecutor who has defended over 1,000 Georgians facing all kinds of criminal and civil charges. She knows how Title IX cases are adjudicated and can help you get an idea of what to expect during your institution’s investigation and administrative hearing. She can work with you to gather evidence, scrutinize the evidence being used against you, and advocate on your behalf throughout the entire process. 

If someone has filed a Title IX complaint against you, we invite you to contact our Georgia Title IX defense attorney immediately by calling (770) 273-0266.

What Is Title IX? 

Title IX is a federal civil rights law (part of the Education Amendments of 1972) that prohibits sexual discrimination in any educational institution receiving federal funding. It’s a pivotal federal law that plays a crucial role in educational environments across Georgia. It ensures that no individual is subjected to or denied participation in or the benefits of any education program or activity based on sex. 

This law encompasses a wide range of issues, including sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and sexual violence, aiming to provide a safe and equitable educational experience for all students.

Although Title IX enforcement has changed over time, the law has commonly been used to regulate: 

  • Sexual, gender-based, or pregnancy discrimination
  • Sexual misconduct, coercion, and harassment
  • Sexual assault and sexual violence (rape, aggravated sexual assault, sexual battery, etc.)
  • Interpersonal violence (domestic or relationship violence)
  • Stalking
  • Equal athletic opportunities
  • Equal learning opportunities 
  • Retaliation against people who file Title IX complaints

Who Enforces Title IX

In Georgia, Title IX applies to all educational institutions that receive federal funding. These institutions are required to comply with Title IX regulations by establishing procedures for handling complaints of sexual harassment, sexual violence, and discrimination. They must also take appropriate action to investigate and determine what occurred once they know or reasonably should know of any such incident.

Title IX enforcement is primarily the responsibility of the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR). The OCR investigates complaints of Title IX violations and works with schools and colleges to ensure compliance. In Georgia, as in other states, institutions are also expected to conduct their investigations into complaints of sexual misconduct and take appropriate action based on their findings.

Penalties for Title IX Violations and Enforcement

Violations of Title IX in Georgia can lead to severe consequences for both individuals and institutions. For individuals, being found responsible for a Title IX violation can result in disciplinary actions such as suspension, expulsion, or termination of employment, depending on the severity of the misconduct and the individual’s role within the institution (student, faculty, or staff).

Understanding Title IX, its implications, and the procedures for addressing violations is essential for all Georgia educational community members. For those accused of Title IX violations, navigating the investigation and hearing process can be complex and challenging, underscoring the importance of seeking knowledgeable legal representation.

I never in a million years saw myself needing a lawyer until I actually needed one. I did some research and reached out to Frye Law Group out of desperation. I was completely surprised at how quickly I was able to get in touch with someone for my consultation and set up a virtual appointment to speak with Kim. She was very nice, but very direct and honest. There was nothing sugarcoated which is what people really need to hear. She laid out my options and we went from there. Throughout the entirety of my case, communication was always there. I knew about court dates in advance, if I had questions, there is a dedicated line just for clients, and overall if you needed a firm to literally walk you through all the legal language, they made it easy to understand. I never had to set foot in the courtroom or come into the physical location of the firm which was super convenient. Everything was done through the client portal. Additionally, I really appreciate them for working with me financially. They say you get what you pay for and you really get the best service working with Kim and her team. Hands down! If you really are in a jam, it never hurts to reach out. With true honesty, faith, and a little patience you'll be glad you took the first step. I highly recommend Kim and her team over at Frye Law Group! If I ever needed legal assistance like I did, I would not hesitate to reach again. A++++

I have never needed a lawyer and wasn’t sure where to start. A friend referred us to Frye Law Group and so glad she did. As you walk into Kim Frye’s law firm, you see many accolades she has been awarded. During our initial meeting, Kim and Michael put us at ease listening to our situation, giving us recommendations and explaining the processes. Their communication was impeccable and so appreciated. We are very happy with the results (thanks Michael!) and highly recommend Frye Law Firm. We would definitely use again, but hoping the need doesn’t arise. :)

I thank them for their awesome work. Definitely recommend.
