MEET JORDAN M. OSTROFF ESQ
Student Code of Conduct Hearings
Since attending the University of Central Florida (UCF) in 2006 and then Barry University School of Law in 2009, Jordan has been involved with both schools' Trial Teams. In this time, Jordan has won multiple best attorney awards while at UCF and has recently coached multiple Barry University teams to one State and several National Championships, as well as multiple finals and semi-final finishes.
A huge component of trial team competitions is teaching undergraduate and law students how to be effective attorneys and witnesses, and then allowing them to perform in front of real attorneys and Judges across Orlando, Sanford, Tampa, Central Florida, and even outside of the United States.
Due to the rules associated with UCF's Student Code of Conduct hearings, you are not entitled to formal representation at the hearing, but you can act as your own advocate and question the officer or officers (usually from the University of Central Florida Police Department, the Orlando Police Department or the Orange County Sheriff's Office) as well as answering the questions asked of you as if you were a witness in a formal trial. Sometimes the questions you ask or the answers you give can be the difference between winning your student code of conduct hearing and losing your hearing at UCF.
Let Jordan train you in that process just like he's trained dozens of other students for the past 8 years so that you stand the best shot at your own hearing. Jordan can prepare and provide questions for witnesses that focus on beneficial information for your case, create exhibits, compile documents and statutes to provide to the hearing officer, and provide outlines of statements for your defense. And, for anyone too nervous to be there by themselves, the rules do allow for an adviser to be there with you, and while the adviser cannot speak on the record, Jordan can be there with you to advise you as the case presents itself.

As part of this job, Jordan worked closely with Officers from the Orlando Police Department, Orange County Sheriff's Office, University of Central Florida Police Department, Winter Park Police Department and other law enforcement agencies in Orange County. He also received extensive training on the Prosecution of cases from Pot Possessions, Domestic Violence and Battery offenses all the way to being trained on the proper administration of Field Sobriety Exercises and Driving Under the Influence (DUI) cases.
