Tulsa Title IX Lawyers

Tulsa Title IX Lawyers

Title IX is a really important law that prohibits discrimination based on sex in education. It has helped a lot of people, but sometimes universities don’t follow it right. If you have faced discrimination based on your gender at a school in Tulsa, a Title IX lawyer can help.

This article will explain Title IX, some of the big cases in Tulsa, and how a lawyer can help if your rights were violated. I’ll try to keep it simple and conversational – let me know if any parts need more explanation!

What is Title IX?

Title IX is a law that was passed in 1972. It says that any school that gets federal money can’t discriminate based on sex. This includes:

  • Colleges and universities
  • Elementary and secondary schools
  • Charter schools
  • For-profit schools
  • Libraries
  • Museums

Title IX protects students and employees from discrimination in areas like:

  • Admissions
  • Recruiting
  • Financial aid
  • Academics
  • Housing
  • Employment

It also covers sexual harassment and sexual violence. Schools have to investigate and stop any discrimination or harassment. They can’t retaliate against someone for reporting a Title IX violation either.

Major Title IX Cases in Tulsa

There have been some big Title IX cases involving Tulsa schools over the years. Here are a few examples:

Jane Doe vs. University of Tulsa

In 2014, a student named Jane Doe said TU failed to properly investigate her sexual assault report. She said the school didn’t follow Title IX rules. A federal judge allowed the lawsuit to move forward in 2015.

Just had my Divorce case settled 2 months ago after having a horrible experience with another firm. I couldn’t be happier with Claire Banks and Elizabeth Garvey with their outstanding professionalism in doing so with Spodek Law Group. Any time I needed questions answered they were always prompt in doing so with all my uncertainties after 30 yrs of marriage.I feel from the bottom of my heart you will NOT be disappointed with either one. Thanks a million.

Alex Zhik contacted me almost immediately when I reached out to Spodek for a consultation and was able to effectively communicate the path forward/consequences of my legal issue. I immediately agreed to hire Alex for his services and did not regret my choice. He was able to cover my case in court (with 1 day notice) and not only was he able to push my case down, he carefully negotiated a dismissal of the charge altogether. I highly recommend Spodek, and more specifically, Alex Zhik for all of your legal issues. Thanks guys!

I don’t know where to start, I can write a novel about this firm, but one thing I will say is that having my best interest was their main priority since the beginning of my case which was back in Winter 2019. Miss Claire Banks, one of the best Attorneys in the firm represented me very well and was very professional, respectful, and truthful. Not once did she leave me in the dark, in fact she presented all options and routes that could possibly be considered for my case and she reinsured me that no matter what I decided to do, her and the team will have my back and that’s exactly what happened. Not only will I be liberated from this case, also, I will enjoy my freedom and continue to be a mother to my first born son and will have no restrictions with accomplishing my goals in life. Now that’s what I call victory!! I thank the Lord, My mother, Claire, and the Spodek team for standing by me and fighting with me. Words can’t describe how grateful I am to have the opportunity to work with this team. I’m very satisfied, very pleased with their performance, their hard work, and their diligence. Thank you team!

I can't recommend Alex Zhik and Spodek Law Firm highly enough for their exceptional legal representation and personal mentorship. From the moment I engaged their services in October 2022, Alex took the time to understand my case thoroughly and provided guidance every step of the way. Alex's dedication to my case went above and beyond my expectations. His expertise, attention to detail, and commitment to achieving the best possible outcome were evident throughout the entire process. He took the time to mentor me, ensuring I understood the legal complexities involved to make informed decisions. Alex is the kind of guy you would want to have a beer with and has made a meaningful impact on me. I also want to acknowledge Todd Spodek, the leader of the firm, who played a crucial role in my case. His leadership and support bolstered the efforts of Alex, and his involvement highlighted the firm's commitment to excellence. Thanks to Alex Zhik and Todd Spodek, I achieved the outcome I desired, and I am incredibly grateful for their professionalism, expertise, and genuine care. If you're in need of legal representation, look no further than this outstanding team.

In 2015, a judge dismissed some of Abigail Ross’s Title IX claims against TU. But her negligence claim was allowed to continue. In 2017, an appeals court ruled that TU couldn’t be held liable for her assault.

Title IX Lawsuits in Oklahoma

Attorneys have filed about 20 Title IX cases in Oklahoma over the years. These include lawsuits against schools in Tulsa, Inola, Norman, Noble, Guymon, and more.

How Can a Lawyer Help?

If you feel your Title IX rights were violated, a lawyer can help in a few key ways:

  • Investigate what happened and get evidence.
  • Determine if the school failed to follow Title IX requirements.
  • File complaints with the U.S. Department of Education.
  • Negotiate with the school to improve policies.
  • File a lawsuit if needed to get compensation.

Some things they might look at are:

  • How the school responded to your report of discrimination or harassment.
  • Whether the school has proper procedures under Title IX.
  • If the school’s Title IX coordinator is doing their job.
  • Whether the school retaliated when you asserted your rights.

Having an attorney on your side levels the playing field. They have experience negotiating with universities and making legal arguments. It can really help to have that expertise!

Finding the Right Lawyer

Not every lawyer has experience with Title IX cases. Here are some tips for finding one:

  • Look for someone who specializes in civil rights, discrimination, or education law.
  • Find out if they have handled Title IX cases before.
  • Ask about their strategy for investigating and building your case.
  • Make sure you feel comfortable with them and can trust them.

Don’t be afraid to ask lots of questions up front! This is an important decision.
