Representation for Teacher School Issues

For teachers, we provide legal representation for unfair dismissal cases, freedom of speech or other education law concerns. An attorney experienced in education law litigation can make the case more equitable for the client facing the enormous resource base most schools have.

Exhaust Administrative Remedies

For all education law cases, a certain process must be followed. To initiate a case, all administrative remedies, including hearings, department decision reviews and appeals processes may need to be exhausted. Clients, with the assistance of an attorney, must first try to resolve the issue through all standard processes and procedures the school requires. Filing a lawsuit is the last resort to pursue when an issue remains after all attempts at resolution have failed. A statutes of limitations applies to all cases and may require filing litigation notices in as little as 90 days, depending on the state. If all administrative proceedings are not exhausted before seeking litigation, the school may use that as a defense.
