What can I solve for you?
Drawing on a deep and broad knowledge base about education law and a passion for helping public school districts and education agencies, I represent clients in resolving disputes before an array of decision-making venues, including federal courts. I also conduct investigations, offer counsel on employment, governance and other matters, and provide training to help clients stay legally compliant so they can create and maintain the best education environments possible.
What's it like to work with me?
I always put my clients’ needs first and understand they have considerations beyond the legal arena. To help them preserve relationships with students and their families, we avoid taking hard-line adversarial stances and always aim to find a way around litigation if possible. My clients and I much prefer to collaborate to find solutions that benefit all involved parties. Afterward, I assess systems and policies to see if we can make changes that help stave off similar problems down the road.
