Law Logos

Bullying, assault, cyberbullying, hazing, sexting distribution, rape, teacher-student sexual relationships, school shootings – these actions should never occur on a school campus. When they do, we are the voice of the sons, daughters, and parents who are the victims.

On behalf of our clients, we are ready to take on perpetrators, school districts, colleges and universities, organizations such as fraternities, and others who allow these actions to take place.  We seek full compensation for our clients and to send a message to those in power that inaction and turning a blind eye will not be tolerated.
