School and Municipal Law
Our attorneys in the School and Municipal section provide education law services to school districts. Our attorneys’ experiences include Board Governance matters. Our experienced attorneys provide specialized counsel with:
- District governance and training of Board members
- Board level student and employee hearings

Our attorneys are experienced in addressing special school district governance issues regarding election issues.
In the sometime difficult and controversial management of a public school our attorneys have many years of experience to partner with you and give you the edge in matters of expulsion, suspension and other student discipline matters.
Members of our firm have handled virtually every variety of due process hearing under Public Law 94-142, as periodically amended by the Individuals with Disabilities Improvement in Education Act (“IDEIA”) and Section 504 complaints. In addition, we frequently lecture on special education from the school district’s perspective on a local and statewide basis.
Our school law practice group is committed to providing the best possible representation to school districts and partnering with them to improve the education of its students by providing up to date legal services to school leaders to do their jobs effectively. Our proactive approach emphasizes the prevention of legal problems before they occur.
Our offices are staffed to ensure that someone is always available to respond to calls and attend meetings whenever and wherever necessary. We often partner with other lawyers in other practice groups drawing upon their expertise, forming a team approach to problem solving.
