What type of attorney...

What type of attorney do i need to retain if i feel that my child was unfairly expelled from school.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because education law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Baton Rouge, La., specifically West Baton Rouge Parish.

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

There was an "Expulsion Hearing" on Monday at which time we were asked to sign a document stating that we had the right to have an attorney present and that we had 5 days to appeal the dean of students decision.

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

Just that we were not provided proper notice of what our child's rights were. The situation was "messy" and the decision was hardly appropriate. This decision will destroy her hard work and stability that she has worked so hard to gain (she is sec. 504)

Please take your time.

Great, thank you! The system may automatically ask you for a phone call; however, it’s not required that you take it. Bear with me a moment while I review…

Thanks so much for your patience. So, generally, the kind of lawyer you would need is one that specializes in educational matters. There aren't a ton of lawyers in most states that do this kind of law and the ones that do usually work for the school district anyway. Most parents usually hire their own civil litigators to help with these issues because this really comes down to whether the school followed their policies.

Could you tell me what concerns you about their decision?

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.
