Overcome Adversity Through Legal Action

We understand the unique challenges campus sexual assault victims face, such as feeling as if no one is listening or willing to help. We are more than prepared to help victims seek justice and navigate the numerous obstacles created by a culture that sometimes seems to turn a blind eye to the real, widespread problem that is campus sexual assault. The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) released a list of the higher education institutions under investigation for possible violations of federal law over the handling of sexual violence and harassment complaints.

When you retain the services of our Okemos lawyers, we can:

  • Educate you regarding your Title IX rights
  • Thoroughly investigate your claim
  • Review the criminal record of the student who assaulted you
  • Check the case history of harassment at your college
  • Address the issue with campus administration members
  • Consider relevant criminal charges

Federal Laws Regarding Campus Sexual Assault

Under federal law, sexual violence refers to physical sexual acts perpetrated against a person’s will or where a person is incapable of giving consent.

Forms of sexual violence named under federal law includes:

  • Rape
  • Sexual abuse
  • Sexual assault
  • Sexual battery
  • Sexual coercion
  • Aggravated sexual assault

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in all education programs or activities that receive federal financial assistance. Title IX also establishes protections afforded to each college or university student against various forms of campus sexual assault. According to the OCR, its public list of campuses under investigation advances a key goal of the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault, which is to bring more transparency to the federal government’s enforcement activities around this issue. It also further spreads awareness of Title IX rights and how to react to campus sexual assault.

  • Excellent staff that you can tell really cares about you and your needs.

    “Excellent staff that you can tell really cares about you and your needs. I've now used this firm 3 times and they have exceeded my expectations every time. I don't ever leave reviews but this firm deserves my time to leave one, thank you all for everything you've done for me and my family!!”

  • Great team of lawyers

    “Great team of lawyers here who are well connected with prosecutors in the area that look out for their client's best interests. They also provide alternative pricing for those who can't afford the top lawyers in the firm (and the top lawyers still work with the associates despite the lower price), so yeah great law firm.”

  • I was expecting to go to jail yesterday but, because of Jamie, I am home with my family instead.

    “My experience with White Law was awesome and I am definitely going to hire Jamie for my son’s case. Jamie did exactly what he said he was going to do and I appreciate that. I had a previous attorney from a different firm that didn’t do what I wanted him to do. It was frustrating. Jamie was great because he always left it up to me to decide. He would give me all my options and then let me make an informed decision. That’s what attorneys are supposed to do. You pay them money to help you out, not force you into deals. I was expecting to go to jail yesterday but, because of Jamie, I am home with my family instead – and that’s what is most important to me. I would recommend Jamie and his firm to anyone.”

  • They gave me my wife, my family, and my life back

    “God helped me through White Law PLLC, and I am indebted to Mr. White and White Law for the rest of my life. They are like family to me. If you’re in trouble and you think your life is over, call White Law. They gave me my wife, my family, and my life back.”
