Connecticut School Expulsion Hearings

In Connecticut School Expulsion Hearings, any time a child is facing a disciplinary suspension from school longer than 10 days, the Board of Education is required to convene a suspension hearing. At the hearing, the child’s parent or guardian is permitted to present evidence and reasons for keeping the child in school. The family may also hire a legal representative to investigate the incident and present evidence in support of keeping the child in the classroom. The attorney has the authority and capacity to represent the family at the hearing — if you are uncomfortable speaking in front of the hearing board, your attorney can do so on your behalf.

Over many years, I have focused my practice on protecting children’s rights and representing families of children in cases involving the Department of Children and Families (DCF), the Board of education expulsion hearings and the juvenile court system. If your child is facing a Connecticut school expulsion hearing or delinquency charges in Connecticut Juvenile Court contact me.  I can evaluate your circumstances and discuss your best legal options.

Why it is so important to have experienced legal representation?

If your child loses an expulsion case in front of the expulsion hearing board, there is no right to appeal. It is critical to prepare the strongest case possible. I have represented children at expulsion hearings and strive to keep kids in school, where they belong.

I represent families throughout Easton, Fairfield, Monroe, Trumbull, Stratford, Bridgeport, Westport, Weston, New Canaan, Wilton, Norwalk, Darien, Stamford and Greenwich.
