Suspended or Expelled?
While the school system may have fairly wide discretion and latitude when it comes to handing down short and long-term suspensions, they still have to follow strict guidelines.
Was it justified?
The Law Office of Brian K. Gruber, P.C. is a boutique law firm representing families in the Maryland and DC area regarding education-related matters including special education, access to appropriate accommodations under Section 504, and students facing disciplinary action including suspension and expulsion.
We have established positive relationships with school system staff and in doing so, our office is often able to achieve a positive outcome for our clients without the need for litigation.
For the times when matters cannot be resolved through persuasive advocacy, we are experienced special education litigators and have handled over 400 due process hearings and mediations across several states and the District of Columbia.
We serve a wide range of clientele and value every client relationship greatly. Each engagement benefits from the depth and breadth of our expertise. We approach every client with a focus on integrity, advocacy, and understanding. We fight for you!
