The firm’s education law practice centers on the representation of school administrators. These professionals are school site leaders (principals, assistant principals and site managers), as well as supervisors, directors and other high ranking local school officials. We have organized collective bargaining units for supervisory employees; negotiated collective bargaining contracts and litigated important issues before the courts and in arbitration tribunals. We have also represented management employees regarding their individual employment situations. Additionally, we have provided ongoing counseling on a variety of legal issues to both school districts and educational institutions.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, we have represented and counseled countless parents on educational issues, ranging from the ability to enroll in a given school district; the right to a free and appropriate public education (FAPE), disability accommodation, school discipline issues and many other specific questions that are central to a quality educational experience for students and their families.
From March through December of 2018, the firm will not be undertaking new representation for students and parents.
