OUR EDUCATION & MUNICIPAL LAW TEAM
Our team of attorneys has a wealth of education-specific experience in both general and special education law. We represent numerous school districts and educational collaboratives throughout Rhode Island.
Over the years, we have been involved in several precedent-setting decisions; we are often on the front-lines of issues related to the most current and pivotal topics in education law. For instance, we were recently successful in upholding terminations of two school professionals by one of Rhode Island’s largest school districts based on poor performance, as opposed to disciplinary infractions.
We work with our clients to create comprehensive policies and develop data to support vital decision-making. Learn more about our Education & Municipal Law practice here.
