Your Child Has Called And Told You He’s Been Charged With Violating His School’s Code of Conduct

Call Now To Speak With Me Immediately

Every Parent’s Fear

Your child has just called you. He received a phone call or a letter from his school. A violation of the school’s disciplinary code of conduct has been filed. Now with so many questions you are searching for answers.

• Can you trust the school to handle your child’s case fairly?

• Do you trust the school to issue a fair and just punishment?

• What gives your child the best chance of success against the charges?

It’s obviously a difficult and scary time. Over the years I’ve spoken with many parents at this stage. Sometimes it’s a minor violation. I advise them how to proceed, explain the likely punishment and tell them that hiring an attorney isn’t necessary.

What if it’s serious?

Other times you can’t delay. I advise these parents to hire me right away, to immediately evaluate the school’s case, to start planning your child’s defense, to contact witnesses, get statements and review and obtain additional evidence. Most critical, your child should speak with me right away, as soon as they learn of the charges, before giving a statement.

Stressful for good reasons

Disciplinary hearings are serious, difficult matters and take a toll on the entire family. Your child is being charged with an offense and the school’s priority isn’t protecting their rights. Your child’s fate is in the hands of a panel of peers and paid employees that are untrained, unqualified, and hardly impartial. Schools limit everything from witnesses to evidence.

My best advice – Call me

Before you do anything, before life-altering decisions are made or a statement is given, you need to speak with an attorney to get the information you need. We’re available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To make sure you get expert guidance right away, know that there is no charge for the initial phone consultation.

Understand The Consequences

When accused of violating a school disciplinary code, there is far more at stake than is often first realized. Possible outcomes include suspension and even expulsion. Your child’s record may have a permanent notation when it’s sent on to graduate schools or potential employers. Your child could lose financial aid, scholarships, and even on-campus housing.

Past Client Testimonials

I am a student who was falsely accused of a Title IX offense. At first, I thought I could handle the school’s procedures by myself without an attorney, but things started getting complicated. At that point, I knew I needed professional help. Even though I was falsely accused, the procedure needs an expert to navigate through the school’s rules. Scott has confidence due to his experience in Title IX cases in other universities who all have different rules and procedures regarding Title IX.  Scott was always available to answer my calls and text messages. He gave 110% into my preparation and defense hearing, and met with me several times to go over any questions and concerns my family and I had. He would listen to everyone’s thoughts and told us the right way to go about my case. As a student, I would highly recommend Scott for representation in any kind of defense and/or Title IX cases.


Mr. Limmer was very professional, knowledgeable and reassuring during a very unsettling time for my son (and family). Scott has experience in dealing with college based disciplinary claims and was very available to both my son and myself to offer practical, wise advice. He was easy and very 'real' to talk to, helping my son get the best outcome from a difficult situation. We appreciated his help and would recommend him without hesitation.


Our son was falsely accused of Title IX violations at college. His future was at stake. We knew we needed to hire the right lawyer to defend him. We hired Scott and not only did he defend and advise him, but we won the case and all charges were dropped! The cost of hiring him was an excellent investment. Scott was honest, professional, extremely knowledgeable and the right man for the job. He made my son comfortable throughout the terrifying experience. Highly recommend him.


I worked with Mr. Limmer on a school title ix hearing case. The chances of winning these cases is very slim because of preponderance of evidence, which makes it impossible for the defendant to prove themselves. Mr. Limmer stood by me throughout the process and guided me at each step on how to go through the process and prepare a solid defense. We worked on it together and result was ruled in our favor. He's really experienced in this area and knows long island schools well


It is with great pleasure that I am writing this review of attorney Scott Limmer.  The college academic disciplinary process was confusing and seemed to be a process that is unfair and finds students guilty. I strongly suggest that if one finds themselves in this type of situation they would seek out Scott Limmer, a qualified professional who protects the rights of students and is well versed in academic college procedure.  I am grateful for the legal advice Scott Limmer provided to me and my daughter every step of the way as it lead to a favorable outcome and prevented my daughter from having a tarnished academic record. Scott was supportive and responsive to me as a parent as well as my daughter. I highly recommend Scott Limmer as he was honest, knowledgeable, and informative throughout this whole process. We are forever grateful to Scott Limmer.

AnonymousAccused of Academic Dishonesty. Was found not responsible 

Scott was super helpful in helping me defend myself against accusations my school made against me. I wasn’t allowed to have an lawyer represent me for me school hearing as is common. But we spent days going over the evidence and preparing my statements and making sure I had valid arguments to make as well as answers to any questions I may be asked. The statements he wrote for me and the trial prep we did was crucial in my case and lead to a favorable outcome. I would highly recommend.
