Civil Rights & Academic Freedom
Ideally, school campuses provide an excellent environment for philosophical inquiry and self-discovery. Civil Rights such as Free Speech, Freedom to Assemble, and Freedom of Religion support the rights of students, faculty, and staff to express themselves and cooperate to promote their own interests. The tenet of Academic Freedom is born out of such legal rights. Yet such Civil Rights and Freedoms are limited by other key legal factors. Public Safety concerns, Private Property rights, Criminal Law, Municipal Law, Employment Agreements, Privacy Rights, Non-Disclosure Agreements, Student Contracts, Third Party Business Agreements, Labor Agreements, and School Rules and Policies clash with these Civil Rights and Freedoms.
My Education Law practice offers Students, Professors, Teachers, Staff, and School Community Leaders, be they Plaintiffs or Defendants, in public and private educational institutions with intelligent, aggressive, and ethical Education Lawyer representation in Civil Rights, Civil Disobedience, Discrimination, and Academic Freedom conflicts at various stages of Negotiations, Litigation, Arbitration, Mediation, Labor Review Board hearings, Grievance Review Board hearings, and Appeals.
I also offer Outsourced General Counsel representation for public and private schools, colleges, and extracurricular programs. I offer nuanced Civil Rights and Academic Freedom defense representation to try to provide institutional clients with leveraged results that benefit the bottom-line as well as the overarching educational goals and noble principles of the institution.
When litigation is required, my hard-hitting tactics, strong legal research and writing skills, persuasive argumentation techniques, tenacity, eloquence, and cutting-edge selection of third-party professionals including expert witnesses, private investigators, news media and publicity professionals, and others all combine to try to deliver to clients the very best legal representation in the courtroom.
Whether your legal concerns involve Educational Conflict Negotiations, Litigation, or Alternative Dispute Resolution, I am eager to provide stellar, effective, and aggressive Education Law Attorney representation to Plaintiffs and Defendants.
I possess special insight into the practice of Education Law garnered from my years of successful experience as an educator in California schools and colleges. I bring this unique perspective to work for my Education Law clients.
