Hathaway lawyers have been involved in almost all aspects of Education Law since the inception of the Firm. This area of practice was a natural fit, since Julien Hathaway, one of the founding members of the Firm had been responsible for the formation of many of the school districts in Ventura County when he was in the District Attorney’s Office.
Hathaway lawyers have developed an expertise in the California Education Code and its enforcement. We regularly advise teachers, classified employees, and administrators with regard to their employment issues and rights under the Education Code. We also represent education employment groups with regard to the rights within the school district.
We advise students and parents with regard to student discipline issues, academic advancement and placement. We also advise parents of special needs children with regard to educational issues, life choices, available programs and transition to adult life.
