Parents Legal Services Program

Since many individuals cannot afford the same fees for legal representation as institutional clients, we've developed the Parents, Students and Educators Legal Services Program to make legal counsel more accessible. Our intake templates help you gather and organize the information and documentation necessary for efficient legal review and analysis. For more information about our Parents, Students and Educators Legal Services Program including how it works, contact my office at 512-320-9177 or dhenslee@school-law.co.
