Education Law

Education law is constantly evolving. We choose to concentrate our practice on education law because helping schools to succeed and to contribute to student and community well-being is important to us.  We have been practicing in the education law field for more than 15 years, and bring many additional years of experience in other areas of the law to bear on this concentration.  Our focus on education law and charters in particular allows us to stay on top of emerging issues affecting our clients, and to provide effective and efficient assistance to schools in navigating through the complex world of education law.

We are experienced handlers of issues regarding:

  • New Mexico’s Public School Code
  • Development of school policies
  • Finding and funding a school facility
  • Training school administrators and governing bodies in education law topics
  • Regulatory/legal compliance matters
  • Reviewing and negotiating contracts relating to school business
  • Contract disputes
  • Administrative proceedings, including those before district Boards of Education, the New Mexico Public Education Department and the New Mexico Public Education Commission
  • Administrative appeals to New Mexico courts
  • Procurement and hiring processes
  • Human resource issues, including grievances, disciplinary matters and terminations
  • Civil rights issues
  • Special education and disability-related matters
  • Transportation issues
