Boston Lawyer in Defense of College Students

Put Decades of Experience on Your Case - Hire Attorney Brad Bailey

Are you a college student who has been accused of a serious crime? Boston criminal defense attorney Brad Bailey, who is widely considered the very best in the city, can stand between you and the criminal justice system, and even your university’s administration. With more than 35 years serving as a prosecutor, Brad now uses that unparalleled insight to provide heavy-duty defense for college-aged students who may be fearful of the future and unsure they will be able to continue their education.

Brad Bailey Law is experienced in handling all types of student disciplinary matters, including Title IX sexual misconduct/harassment cases, which can be among the most frightening and confusing proceedings students can face in light of rampant disregard for constitutional protections, unfair burden shifting, and broad-based use of the civil preponderance of evidence standard --- all of which can, and often does, result in unfair findings and disciplinary action(s) when addressed/defended without experienced legal representation and advice.
