Public School Expulsion Defense

Public education is a right, not a privilege, under Florida law. Therefore, your child is entitled to due process of the law before they can be expelled from school for an alleged discipline violation. School administrators frequently downplay the significance of the process in an attempt to dissuade parents from hiring an attorney to represent their child. Having an experienced attorney by your side during all stages of the process will help you ensure that your child's rights are not violated, and that you get the best possible results.

Florida law gives the individual school boards immense leeway in determining their own disciplinary procedures. Every county is responsible for developing a code of conduct and disciplinary procedure. It is important to hire an attorney who knows how to navigate the various codes of conduct throughout all the counties in Central Florida. At Lindsey & Ferry, P.A., our experienced attorneys are ready to be at your side to fight to keep your child in school.
