Our Education Litigation Difference

Our education litigators are well versed with both the intricacies of education litigation as well as litigation issues unique to representing public entities, such as sovereign immunity and public records issues. 

When handling education litigation, our litigators are supported by experienced education attorneys who are extremely knowledgeable about laws and regulations that govern boards of education. Our proven teamwork approach provides school districts with the best of both worlds — exceptional litigators and dedicated education attorneys.
