School discipline cases
Young people face draconian consequences in schools and in the Juvenile Justice System for what is normal adolescent behavior.
Students are suspended and even expelled for minor infractions. Our schools should be focused on educating students; ensuring they have every tool they need to succeed.
Being suspended or expelled from school can have life long consequences for your child. Every time a school suspends a child they are reducing that students chances of success.
Every young person needs a lawyer on his side in the youth court. Before your child goes to Youth Court, you need to know the consequences of a delinquency adjudication. Bear Atwood can help your child navigate the Juvenile Justice system .
If your child has a disciplinary hearing, or has a Youth Court charge pending, please do not hesitate to contact our office for a case evaluation.
