Education Law Attorney


When a student is harmed by a teacher, coach, or school administrator, the harm is compounded by the fact that the person causing the student to suffer is a trusted caregiver. This is true even in cases involving abuse by fellow students, where too often, school administrators fail to properly investigate the abuse and care for the harmed student.

If you or your child has been harmed in an educational setting, DeGolia Law is here to help.
