Education Lawyers

Why hire an Education attorney?

Education lawyers represent school districts and school boards in disputes with students, teachers, and parents, and they also help parents who have issues with their child’s education. If you believe a school has violated your rights regarding your child's disabilities, or your child has been bullied or unfairly disciplined, then you need an attorney experienced in the legal system's application to schools. Your attorney will understand your school district’s law and evaluate your legal choices and advise you on the best strategy to take.
