Representing Students And Educators Against Schools And Universities
Lawyers Defending Students In Superintendents’ Hearings
Every child in America has the right to a free and fair public education. Unfortunately, schools and school districts try to deny those rights to certain children and teenagers labeled as “problems.” The tools they use are expulsion and lengthy suspensions that cause students to fall behind academically. Such measures rob children of their right to education and reinforce the school-to-prison pipeline.
In New York, public school suspensions lasting longer than five days are not allowed without holding a student disciplinary hearing, also referred to as a superintendent’s hearing or a 3214 hearing. If your family has received notice of a hearing, you should know what you’re up against. The school district will be sending an attorney to represent its case. When students and families attend the hearings without hiring their own lawyer, it is common for those students to be expelled.
At Housh Law Offices, PLLC, we fight for the rights of students and their families. We have decades of experience defending against suspensions and expulsions, and we never represent schools or school districts.

Protecting Teachers Against Tenure Revocation
Teachers and professors often get lumped in with schools, universities and school districts. They are assigned blame for the unfair ways in which students are treated (like those mentioned above). But the fact of the matter is that teachers and professors don’t generally make administrative decisions, and they are also at risk of being ousted by unfair policies and the politics of the larger system.
Revoking tenure is often the first step toward firing an educator. If you are a teacher or professor and are facing the possibility of tenure revocation, you surely realize how high the stakes are. You need an experienced attorney on your side.
Fighting Wrongful Termination From Professional Programs
In addition to representing students and educators against schools and universities, Housh Law Offices, PLLC, also represents college and post-graduate students who have been unfairly removed from professional programs.
These programs are expensive, and removal will likely affect the course of your career for years to come. Let our attorneys help you fight for your rights and your future.
