Jason Setchen, P.A. is the driving force behind the Athlete Defender law firm. He is a highly regarded NCAA sports lawyer that has handled some of the highest profile cases that have come down the pike in recent years. Without question, anyone that needs an NCAA lawyer would do well to have a discussion with this accomplished attorney.
There are some fields of endeavor that are extraordinarily competitive, but the sporting arena may be at the top of the list. Even if you were a fine high school athlete, it is extremely hard to get a scholarship to any college or university. When it comes to elite programs like the basketball program at Duke or the University of Miami football program, it is even tougher. In all, only about two percent of people that play high school sports get scholarships to play at the next level.
If you are capable of reaching these lofty heights as an athlete, your scholarship is going to mean everything to you. For the best of the best, it can be a pathway toward a professional career. Clearly, this would be very lucrative, so the stakes are extremely high. This being stated, a scholarship is just as important for someone that will probably never play pro ball. When you can go to school for free as you make a name for yourself, you are setting yourself up for a successful career.
Unfortunately, many sports programs do not always act in the best interests of all of their athletes. Scholarships are sometimes revoked unfairly, and in other cases, the amount of the help is reduced. When you are in this situation, and you are a young person on your own trying to battle a huge, well-financed institution, you can feel helpless and simply accept the situation.
This is understandable, but you do not have to yield to the school without putting up any type of resistance. NCAA sports attorney Jason Setchen has an extraordinary track record representing clients that have had scholarship issues with colleges and universities. When he gets involved, if you have a case, he will make it quite clear to the opposition that you have the law on your side.
