Here’s why you’ll enjoy working with him
Warm and assured, Stuart quickly gains the trust of his clients with his personable demeanor alongside his ability to conduct meticulous, trauma-informed, neutral civil rights investigations. He has extensive experience conducting misconduct investigations in a variety of settings, including in the workplace, on campuses, and for government entities. A fearless and determined advocate for his clients, Stuart is known to “find the needle in the haystack” in even the most complex of cases — and brings an analytical, decisive mind alongside an ability to handle extremely emotional and difficult interactions. Along with his steadfast commitment to conducting balanced investigations, Stuart is known as a “bringer of mirth” to those who work closely with him.
Over his career, Stuart has focused his investigatory skills within the context of equal opportunity. In his role as Deputy Equal Opportunity Coordinator at the University of Denver, Stuart oversaw the initial assessment of all equal opportunity reports and managed the University’s equal opportunity intake process. Coupled with his previous work as an Investigator for the Maine Human Rights Commission, Stuart has reviewed hundreds of reports on disability, religious, race, and other types of discrimination and harassment. As a complement to his equal opportunity work, Stuart advised employers and clients on ADA and other types of disability-related issues.
In addition, Stuart gained Title IX experience as a Title IX Investigator at the University of Virginia. There, he investigated dozens of sexual and gender-based violence cases. Stuart also worked on campus-wide teams, including the Threat Assessment Team, and gained crucial experience on how to coordinate with campus partners to solve time-sensitive, escalated concerns.
During his time in higher education, Stuart regularly conducted civil rights trainings, including trainings regarding institutional policies and mandatory-reporter policies. Stuart has extensive investigatory training, including Investigator and Title IX Coordinator training through the Associate of Title IX Administrators (ATIXA), as well as trainings focused on informal resolution, trauma-informed investigations, and acting as a hearing advisor. Stuart is the proud recipient of the Chicago-Kent College of Law’s Labor & Employment Law Certificate.
