Attorney in Hackensack, NJ

Recently, education law has become more and more complex, encompassing a broad range of legal issues. This makes choosing the right lawyer even more important than it used to be. School boards need to consider many factors when selecting a lawyer , including the following:

  • The lawyer’s experience in school law
  • The lawyer’s experience in the litigation process
  • The lawyer’s personality and the board’s comfort level with the lawyer
  • The lawyer’s fee structure, whether the fee is the same for any time of day and whether it includes all of the necessary support services

Wearing many hats

Today, a school lawyer has to wear many hats to respond effectively to a school’s evolving legal needs. In addition to being very familiar with the details of school law, a school district lawyer must also have knowledge and experience in other areas of law that could affect the school districts.

A school lawyer should have experience in prevention. He or she needs to be able to respond quickly to potential legal issues and actively work to prevent them from recurring. A school district lawyer must also be well versed in other areas of law, such as employment law and compliance activities and effective board procedures. New legal issues may often arise with increased technological advances and civil rights. Parents are becoming more sensitive to their children’s freedom and, as result, they make more demands on the school.
