Suspensions, Discipline, and Due Process
Many students and parents unexpectedly find themselves faced with a suspension, expulsion or other acts by a school that seems to be unfair and unwarranted. Many times, these actions by a school, college or university can have significant and life-changing impacts on a person’s future. We have many years of experience of assessing whether a school’s action is legally justified and aggressively advocating and litigating for our clients when a school takes unfair and excessive actions.
Special Education Lawyer
More issues about special education and student rights are affecting clients today. As school districts struggle with tighter budgets, the possibility increases that students entitled to special education through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) may be denied the opportunity. In special education cases, we represent students and parents to ensure access to Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE).
