Customer Question
Hi my daughter is...

Hi my daughter is in year 4 at school and has been experiencing bullying by teachers and students from being called a disappointment to a slut whore c**t and also being physically bullied and I'm not sure what my daughters rights are

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Nsw

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Yes I have reported to the school and the school principal has said they cant do anything about it because it was outside of school hours but the principal has called her a disappointment and the vice principal has told her to get over it (being called slut etc)

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

That's all thank you

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
