When it comes to addressing the unique challenges that come with addressing what students, parents, educators, and administrators face, the Syracuse education law attorneys at Tully Rinckey stand out for their experience and commitment to upholding your rights and maintain your educational career.
Experienced and Understanding Syracuse Education Law Attorneys
At Tully Rinckey, our team of Syracuse education law attorneys provides comprehensive legal representation to a broad variety of clients across New York and the greater Syracuse area. From elementary and secondary school to universities and graduate programs, our attorneys have seen cases like yours and can help you plan out the best path forward towards resolving your educational dispute.
Our attorneys know how frustrating it can be to deal with schools that fail to provide the necessary accommodations for your child in school or when your child is facing a superintendent’s hearing or disciplinary committee. These processes are oftentimes foreign, and if you try to “go it alone” when addressing these issues, you risk not being able to successfully negotiate your interests and hurting your educational career.
If you are facing an educational disagreement or dispute, consider reaching out to Tully Rinckey today for an initial conversation about how we can help you reach your educational goals. Your needs will always receive our highest attention and care, and we will deliver a practical solution to meet your needs.
What We Do
Our attorneys have handled numerous matters for school officials, districts, and educators, including:
Advising and counseling on disciplinary matters
Handling parent issues with teachers/faculty
Reviewing and formatting superintendent meeting minutes
Drafting and revising employee handbooks
Representing academies in employment discrimination cases before federal and state courts, the EEOC, and NYS Human Rights Commission
Reviewing contracts and agreements involving academies/institutions
Communicating with law enforcement on investigations involving teachers
Additionally, our attorneys are familiar with many other aspects of education law, including areas around ADA/special education accommodations. Our attorneys serve as zealous advocates for children with special needs, assisting parents with:
Attending IEP meetings with our parent-clients
Obtaining remedial education and educational placement
Structuring Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) or plans under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (504 Plans)
Securing required and/or appropriate evaluations
Obtaining speech, occupational, physical therapy, or other special education services
Due process Complaints and Hearings
Appeals to State Review Officers
Our attorneys also have experience with discrimination and misconduct matters. Having assisted clients with public-school superintendent’s hearings and facing college/university disciplinary committees, our attorneys have a clear understanding of how these processes work and the quick timeframes they operate in. We also have experience with Title IX investigations/hearings.
Why Should You Consult With an Education Law Attorney
While similar to traditional court proceedings, schools and universities are not obligated to follow traditional court norms. What this means is that you or your student aren’t necessarily innocent until proven guilty. Coupled with the pressure to maintain a good reputation. Schools often dispense punishment quickly, before a student can even understand what’s going on.
Even students who aren’t facing disciplinary issues but have educational disputes are at a similar disadvantage when trying to negotiate for ADA or special education accommodations. Without the assistance of an education attorney, these students and their parents would either be unable to mount a successful dispute or, worse, may be forced to accept the student’s fate without even filing a disagreement.
How We Can Help
Tully Rinckey can offer professional guidance to parents, teachers, students, and staff navigating all types of disciplinary and school dispute matters. We have encountered situations like yours and can give you the assistance you need to attain the outcomes you want, from fighting for our client’s right to provide the kid with a free, appropriate public education as mandated by the IDEA to conducting violations and Title IX difficulties to ADA and other academic issues.
Our attorneys are well-versed in New York education law, and we often assist students in K–12, college, and other graduate programs around the state. We can act as an advisor to you regardless of where your school is located, whether it is in Syracuse or anywhere else across New York State.
