Academic Misconduct: A Wide Range of Issues 

Academic misconduct encompasses a broad spectrum of violations, from plagiarism and cheating to unauthorized collaboration and exam irregularities. Each case has its unique complexities. Navigating the intricacies of the disciplinary process alone can be overwhelming. K Altman Law possesses a deep understanding of these variations, allowing us to develop a strategic defense tailored to your specific situation. 

Comprehensive Representation for Students: 

Our primary focus is on supporting students facing allegations of academic misconduct. We represent students in cases involving: 

  • Cheating: This includes unauthorized collaboration, copying another student’s work, using unauthorized materials during exams, or fabricating data. 
  • Plagiarism: Whether intentional or unintentional, plagiarism involves presenting someone else’s work as your own. We can help you understand the specific allegation and develop a strong defense strategy. 
  • Fabrication or Falsification: Submitting fabricated data or falsifying information in research papers or assignments can lead to academic misconduct charges. We’ll work with you to address the accusation and explore all possible solutions. 
  • Unauthorized Access or Possession of Information: Gaining access to unauthorized information or possessing confidential materials can be considered a violation. We can assist you in understanding the specific policy at your institution and advocate for a fair outcome.

  • Disciplinary Action: If you’re facing disciplinary action due to alleged involvement in academic dishonesty cases, we can provide legal counsel and advocate for a fair resolution. 

Guiding You Through Appeals:
