Do parents need lawyers for school disciplinary matters?
The education lawyers at Kirsch-Goodwin & Kirsch counsel and represent students in disciplinary matters. We can represent you, or prepare you for the hearing. We also advise students and their parents / legal guardians about student rights and what schools must do, may do and cannot do, beginning with the student bring asked for a statement, the parameters of the investigation, and the amount of due process to which the student is entitled. Students and their parents ought to know their legal rights BEFORE a school administrator questions the student. Know your rights and just how much due process your child is entitled to in a public school and a charter school, and the difference if your child attends a private school.
