School District Counsel and Litigation
A public school district has day to day operations to worry about much like a private business. It can't stop to worry about extra problems. Unlike their private business counterparts, school districts are often left with scarce resources and financial support. Nonetheless, a district's issues require experienced, knowledgable, and strong counsel for day-to-day, every arising issues. Whether it is a matter related to hiring and firing or counsel on how to handle a parent situation, district administration needs a firm to turn to when problems land in their lap requiring representation from legal advice to a full-scale litigation team. We are familiar with school litigation matters including issues related to hiring and firing and other employment law issues, discrimination claims, real estate, Americans with Disabilities Act claims, and construction contract and negligence matters. Because we offer high-level legal representation in a small firm format in our local community, we are able to provide cost-effective yet comprehensive legal solutions for our public and private school districts, community colleges and universities, and education foundations.
Student and Parent Representation
The law as it pertains to the way students and parents interact with our public education system are complex and often require legal representation to navigate through the ever-changing laws and local policies. Whether or not you know much about the law and the rights afforded to your student, the thing you know as a parent is that you want what is best for your child. You may not know how to go about getting the results that are best for your child. When you find yourself in this position, it's best to seek counsel to find out what options are available to you.
