School Discipline

We know your rights and can help you!

  • Suspensions
  • Expulsions
  • Manifestation Hearings for Special Education Students
  • College Disciplinary Actions
  • Victims of bullying, cyberbullying, and school district responsibilities. 


No one will argue that all teachers and students deserve a supportive and safe environment at school. However, the area of school discipline varies greatly across school districts nationwide creating unfair inconsistencies in how one student is treated compared with another.    


Additionally, with today’s changing social media climate, school discipline has taken on a whole new meaning. When does a post or other activity on social media rise to a level where schools can and should discipline students for those actions? When does such discipline cross the line and violate a student’s rights under the United States Constitution? When should the school do more?    


Regardless of which side you are on, whether the victim of bullying or other uncomfortable and dangerous situations, and you feel that the school is not protecting your student, or your student is faced with disciplinary and/or criminal proceedings in the school environment, Saros Law is here to serve your student and family’s best interest and advocate on your behalf in both the school setting and/or criminal arena. With over 20 years combined experience in both criminal law and education counseling, Saros Law knows how to propose and obtain reasonable solutions to difficult situations.
