Education Law

Marcus Educational Law and You

Deciding you need a lawyer is an important decision.


Sometimes parents need help in navigating the school system. They are exhausted and overwhelmed. Education is important to them and they do not want to wait too long to get assistance because their children may lose meaningful educational growth and fall further and further behind.


If they are gifted, they may lose out on enriching educational opportunities that are not available in their general education classroom. If their child was unfairly disciplined their child may be removed from their home school without having received the school support they needed. The effective practice of educational law requires a knowledge of education, psychology as well as the law.

Mediation

Guardianship And Probate Mediation

Mediation is a voluntary informal dispute resolution process.


A neutral and unbiased third party, called the mediator, assists the parties clarify issues, consider options and reach a resolution.


Mediation is an effective process for cases involving personal and emotional issues.  It is often the “right” process for families that want to preserve their relationships.


Consider this: mediation is an excellent choice for guardianship and probate cases. It offers family members an opportunity to speak their concerns. It offers the parties a voice.


The mediation process helps each party feel heard. Once parties feel heard they are in a better position to make meaningful progress towards a resolution.
