How an Attorney Can Help You

It is important that a student discusses their student disciplinary case with an attorney prior to meeting with the Dean of Students or the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities. Without the assistance of an attorney, a student may make statements against their interest or waive certain rights.

When appealing an expulsion or suspension, there are also very important deadlines for filing appeals, submitting documentation or naming witnesses. It is important that these deadlines be met. An expulsion or suspension can appear on a student's permanent transcript and harm his or her chances of receiving an education at another school.

For international students, an expulsion can mean the loss of a student visa. What may start as a relatively small matter can turn into an arrest by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Attorney Steve Graham has helped many international students, including Saudi Arabian students in Cheney and Pullman, Washington.

Defending Your Rights in Expulsion & Suspension Cases

Many colleges or universities are increasing the number of expulsions or long-term suspensions due to allegations of sexual assault. This is particularly true at Washington State University. Public universities such WSU and EWU are under pressure from the federal Department of Education to expel for rape allegations, even when there is only marginal evidence.

The federal authorities in these cases discourage the universities from placing too much emphasis on the rights of the accused. The investigations are conducted by the Office of Student Standards and Accountability (OSSA) and/or Office for Equal Opportunity (OEO), and the case is heard by the Student Disciplinary Board. The procedure is not always conducted fairly, and it is important to have an attorney that is experienced in handling these matters.

We have handled cases involving and not limited to:

  • Sexual Assault
  • Alcohol or Drugs in Dorm Rooms
