Education Law Attorneys Jacksonville FL
Wood, Atter, & Wolf, P.A. has been a Jacksonville law firm since 1957. We commit to protecting the citizens of Jacksonville in their daily lives.
There is no more sacred trust than when a parent entrusts their child to a school for educational development. Parents should be able to rely on the fact that schools are institutions of learning.
They should be helping to mold your child into a vital member of society.
Sadly, this is not always the case. In some instances, children are hurt or injured at school due to faulty conditions, untrained or inappropriate staff.
In other instances, children who have special needs are met with resistance from school personnel in receiving the very safeguards that are put in place to federally protect their educational well-being.
Finding the Right Education Law Attorney
In these cases, you need an attorney who will advocate for your rights as a parent. But also fight for the rights of your child.
Too often, we hear on the news about how education has gone wrong. Children are at the mercy of a system that is imperfect.
Children have a right to receive education free from bullying. They deserve an environment that will bolster their understanding, knowledge, and esteem.
When negative events transpire at school, this has a lasting impact on your child’s openness to the classroom and educational setting.
This impact can snuff out the light and love of learning that parents strive to instill in their children from an early age.
There is no greater joy than watching the kindergartener excel in their academics to walk across the graduation stage with the same excitement about learning that they started school with, but unfortunately, the actions or inaction of a school system that is not a partner in learning for your child can be detrimental to fanning that flame of enthusiasm.
Know Your Rights
Understanding your rights as a parent is key to knowing how to best navigate the complicated structure of school and school board administration.
Having an advocate who cares about you and your child’s future is a trust that we take very seriously, and we work hard to maintain your confidence that your case will be handled with professionalism and effective advocacy.
From attending Individualized Education Plan (IEP) meetings, educating clients and students about the differences between a 504 and an IEP, to holding a school or school board accountable for failing a child, are the many components of education law that we handle for our clients.
Having experienced advocates that will work for your child’s best interest against a school system that may have been neglectful, self-interested, or just plain wrong is important to ensure your child’s success and enthusiasm about learning.
At Wood, Atter, & Wolf, P.A., we value the education that we have been fortunate to receive.
Likewise, we seek to give every child equal opportunity to receive what only a good education can provide. And we do this regardless of their individual challenges.
Schedule your appointment to meet with us to discuss where your educational system has failed your child.
Within a short amount of time, we can help to decide the best course of action for your child’s success.
