's Profile Image

Students miss exams or paper deadlines for many reasons: illness, family emergencies, and other unexpected issues can arise. Most professors are understanding and will work with a student if they keep them informed. However, what can happen if after you get an extension for a paper or take a make-up exam and are then accused of cheating? Read on for tips from a defense attorney for students.

How do I prove I am not making up an excuse for being absent?

If you believe the professor does not have any other evidence to support the cheating accusation, bring a note from a doctor with you. If you were sick and stopped by the health clinic then this could be one way of proving your innocence. If it was a family issue - plane tickets or other travel receipts could back up your situation.

Yes. I help students all over the country defend against academic integrity and honor code violations. I assist students using my nearly twenty years as an attorney combined with a specialized knowledge of the university disciplinary process to help students achieve positive results.

I tried to defend myself and lost the academic hearing. Can you help me appeal?

Yes. I write appeals for students facing academic sanctions like a failing course grade, notation on transcripts, suspension, and even expulsion from school. Writing a winning student appeal takes an attorney with experience.

Can you help all college students that need a college suspension appeal?

Yes. I work with students all over the country who are facing discipline in college.
