Coach and Athletics Administration Representation

Basketball Coach with TeamIf you are a high school or collegiate coach or administrator and you are a target, subject, person of interest or witness in an enforcement or infractions matter, you should immediately consider securing experienced legal representation.

If you are a target, subject, or person of interest to a potential enforcement or infractions action, even as a witness, you should consider contacting Athlete Defender immediately. Depending on the institution and the circumstances, your employer may agree to pay all or a portion of your legal fees.

About Athlete Defender

Many times athletes find themselves being treated unfairly and feel as though they do not have “a voice” or independent support when encountering a disciplinary or administrative situation with their school, conference or an administrative governing body or league like the NCAA, NFL, NBA or other sports league.
