Our firm defends educational institutions in a wide range of matters including general liability, employment, civil rights, workers’ compensation, premises liability, personal injury, discrimination claims and sexual assault cases. We know that in the world of education a lawsuit can mean a disruption in goals and strategies, so we work diligently to resolve cases with minimal disruption to schools, colleges and universities.
We have handled cases in both the public and private sectors of education and have attorneys who have served on school boards, been classroom teachers and are parents of special needs children. Because of this, they have an excellent grasp of educational systems. Examples of cases we have handled include defending athletic associations in injury claims occurring during high school athletic events, slip-and-falls, employment discrimination claims, workers’ compensation claims and sexual assault cases at universities and public and private schools.
Our attorneys also provide risk management assessments and training in the hope of preventing litigation. We review handbooks and policies to make sure educational institutions are in compliance with the law.
We have represented numerous religious schools of all faiths along with individual teachers, administrators and board members.
Our strength is our relationships, understanding our clients’ schools and resolving the issues they are facing.
