School Law

School law is a subsection of the law that handles whether or not school systems are being effective with students. More specifically it can be determined whether or not students with disabilities are being assisted effectively. An attorney can help assess whether or not a school is offering the right programs or services. Every child has unique and individual needs. One may feel that the school is not validating concerns or feel as if the school staff is not sharing important information about their student. Patterson Law Firm is here to make sure that your child gets an appropriate and adequate education.

There are many reasons why one would want to get an attorney involved in their affairs with the school. Perhaps filling out the paperwork for an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) is too overwhelming. One may also want to get an attorney involved in the discipline of their student. Students are entitled to an attorney at expulsion hearings. Attorney presence can improve the outcome including preventing the expulsion altogether.

An attorney can assist at IEP meetings or advocate for clients elsewhere in the academic system. Patterson Law Firm will advocate for your child.
