The college athletic industry is highly complex, multi-faceted, and widespread. These days, college athletes are akin to celebrities, receiving the same recognition and praise from devoted fans. Unfortunately, this complex athletic landscape has made it challenging for many college athletes to uphold their legal rights and responsibilities.

Why Do Athletes Need Legal Representation?
With the rise in the popularity of college athletics has come the necessity for athletes to maintain strict control over their rights in the athletic industry. College athletes have specific rights to their name, image, and likeness (NIL) within public material. They also have the right to obtain payment when companies use their names, branding, or logos.
However, if you’re a college athlete, your rights have probably been violated time and again without your knowledge. You may be losing financial, athletic, and academic opportunities due to an entity’s failure to uphold your rights.
Working with a qualified lawyer is essential to maintaining your rights and compliance throughout your athletic ventures.
