Education is a vital component in today's world. The learning experience shapes the future lives of students, their families and their communities. Education is core to the American way of life. But issues that threaten a student's education experience can occur at any school from the most prestigious private higher education institution to a public K-12 institution. The threat of expulsion, program access or some other school issue can impair the student's future quality of life. Potential earning power and career path opportunities are at stake for the student.

Suspensions, Discipline, and Due Process
Many students and parents unexpectedly find themselves faced with a suspension, expulsion, or other act 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 schools 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).
