Title IX Defense 

Title IX is a federal law originally intended to ensure equality in education for all sexes. It evolved over the last 15 years to require Universities and state schools to investigate and make determinations involving allegations of sexual harassment, sexual violence, rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, and sexual coercion. However, Title IX violations are not decided through the criminal justice system. They are handled by school staff.

The consequences of a Title IX accusation against a student can be significant and far-reaching, like expulsion from school and a severely damaged reputation. However, it is important to remember that being accused is not the end, and an experienced Title IX defense attorney can help. Our track record is full of high-profile Title IX cases and vindications in Texas.

If you or your child have been accused of a Title IX violation, you need a lawyer who understands this and knows how Title IX hearings work on individual Texas campuses. With more Title IX defense experience than most other firms, Botsford & Roark can help you fight the allegations, challenge the process, protect your public status, and set the record straight.

DWI Defense

Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) or Driving Under the Influence (DUI) are alcohol and drug-related Texas criminal offenses. Depending on the circumstances, a DWI can be a misdemeanor or a felony. Most types of DWI convictions have the potential to result in jail time, loss of driving privileges, and thousands of dollars in fines, as well as social consequences like difficulty obtaining future employment, professional licenses, and more. Some of the most common types of impaired and intoxicated driving charges handled by the Austin DWI defense attorneys at Botsford & Roark include: 

  • DUI, underage drunk driving
  • 1st offense DWI 
  • 2nd offense DWI 
  • 3rd and subsequent offense DWI

In the complex web of Texas DWI & DUI laws, an experienced attorney can make all the difference. With a Botsford & Roark DWI defense lawyer by your side, you aren’t just procuring legal services; you’re investing in peace of mind.

Assault Defense

Assault is a criminal offense broadly defined in Texas as intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causing bodily injury to another person, threatening someone with imminent bodily harm, or making offensive or provocative physical contact with another individual. With so much room for interpretation, misunderstandings and unjust accusations of assault are common here. However, every assault charge – whether a misdemeanor or a felony - must be taken seriously in Texas. The legal and social ramifications of an assault conviction can be difficult to overcome.

If you're facing assault charges in Central Texas, our attorneys are here to help. Our strategy is straightforward yet effective: we challenge the evidence, the legal process, the credibility of witnesses, and the circumstances surrounding your case to create reasonable doubt and negotiate for a favorable outcome.
