School disciplinary proceedings are often stacked against the accused. They threaten to dismantle everything you or your child has worked to achieve academically and professionally and the collateral consequences, if not addressed aggressively and head on, can have lasting impact throughout adult life.

At Dratel & Lewis we have vigorously and successfully represented numerous students- whether in high school, college, graduate or professional school, such as medical or law school- facing school discipline either on its own or in conjunction with a related criminal case. For us, the goal is always to preserve our client’s reputation, standing, and ability to continue with their education in a way that does not damage their future, employment prospects, or potential to succeed as an adult.
