My practice is exclusively focused on providing representation and counsel to local public agencies - school districts, cites/towns and other local special purpose districts. I devote a significant portion of my time to special education advice and litigation; employment litigation; and Public Records Act issues.
Education laws relate to how our schools operate. They cover matters like educational standards, school district and school board authority, student attendance, discipline, and dress code requirements. An education lawyer advises school districts and school boards and represents them in disputes with students, teachers, and parents. Education lawyers also represent parents who have issues with their children's education. For example, if you think your child has been improperly suspended from school, an education lawyer will help you determine if challenging the suspension is within your legal rights.
