School Discipline K-12

Is your teenager on the verge of being expelled? Does he or she face juvenile court issues? We want to help you resolve such problems with as little disruption to your child's education as possible. In some situations, there may be additional legal protections for students with disabilities who are facing a school discipline matter. We are ready to help you in school discipline matters with your family's overall goals and wellbeing in mind.

Education And Family Matters Often Go Hand-In-Hand

Are you concerned about your child's school-related issues that seem to grow more complex as time goes by? Resolution may or may not come through negotiations with the school and school district. These avenues may not be just right for your case. Is the problem situation actually a family matter — such as a needed guardianship or a co-parenting situation? As family law is one of our practice areas, we are prepared to help you discover where your answers lie — and guide you accordingly.
