Georgia Title IX Defense Lawyer
Title IX Law Firm in Marietta, GA, Serving Cobb, Fulton, Cherokee, Bartow, and Paulding Counties
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) 637-4555.
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.
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)
- Equal athletic opportunities
- Equal learning opportunities
- Retaliation against people who file Title IX complaints

Students found responsible for Title IX violations can lose scholarships, be suspended, expelled, placed on probation, and ordered to do community service. Employees can lose tenure, have their academic appointment changed, be terminated, or face other punishments. Furthermore, it’s also possible that the accuser will press criminal charges, in which case the evidence gathered during the school’s investigation can be subpoenaed and used in court.
If you’ve been accused of a Title IX violation, Frye Law Group can help protect your right to a fair investigation and adjudication, understand and scrutinize the allegations brought against you, weigh your legal options, build a strong defense, prepare you for each step of the process, and represent you in hearings and investigative interviews.
