How to Hire Private Counsel for a 3020a Tenure Hearing

Teachers facing a 3020(a) tenure hearing need to be aware of their right to hire private counsel to defend them at that hearing. Union attorneys are certainly free, but often the unions appear to inadequately fund their legal department.

I feel that is simply inadequate for a hearing that could protect the incredible value represented by a teacher's livelihood and career.
