Frequently Asked Questions


1. I’m facing a non-renewal/termination.  Do I actually need a lawyer?

Yes!  More specifically, you need an attorney that knows Education Law and understands the dynamics of representing Teacehrs.  If you are going to retain legal counsel, you should always do it sooner rather than later. Consulting with an attorney during the early stages of the case can help secure evidence and protect certain rights.

2. Do you offer free consultations?

Unfortunately, we do not have free consultations.  Our consultation fee is $225.00.  Consultations are limited to an hour which allows us to evaluate your case.  Please call today if you have a school related matter.

3. How can you help me? What will your firm do?

If we accept your case, all of our professional resources will be directed to resolving the unique issues involved in your particular case and in obtaining the best possible outcome. Our firm is dedicated to servicing Educators who face suspensions, terminations, non-renewals and PSC Ethical violations.  We offer tough, aggressive legal counsel.

4. What do your services cost?

We have various payment methods available to retain our services. The first of which is an hourly rate. We decide this hourly rate on a case-by-case basis with due consideration given to the time and complexity involved, as well as the lawyer who will be handling the file. However, this can oftentimes be expensive and cost-prohibitive to a client. Therefore, other cases are operated under a flat fee agreement. We can discuss which would be the most effective approach given your case.

5. What are your office hours?

Our regular office hours are Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. However, we recognize that oftentimes people are in need of emergency assistance.  An issue can occur at any time of day or night.  In those situations, a person may need to meet with an attorney from our office after normal office hours. We recognize this fact and are more than amenable to meeting on the weekends.

6. When should I hire a lawyer?

If you are going to retain legal counsel, you should always do it sooner rather than later. Consulting with an attorney during the early stages of the case can help secure evidence and protect certain rights.
