The Education and Employment Law Team has a wealth of experience handling multiple issues for public and private schools, and public and private institutions of higher learning. Indeed, it is unimaginable that an issue of education or employment law could arise that team members have not seen previously. The team members regularly counsel clients and litigate matters involving hiring and firing personnel; allegations of discrimination; labor disputes; issues arising under the Open Public Records Act and Open Public Meetings Act; student discipline; insurance coverage disputes; bid and contract issues; disciplinary matters; personnel matters and employee benefits, including family and medical leave and reasonable accommodations under the ADA; and real estate and land use matters.

Additionally, due to the size and diverse backgrounds of the firm’s attorneys, the firm boasts specialists in other relevant areas, such as environmental law, intellectual property, creditor’s rights, and planned giving.
