Attorney John Ullian can advise and represent a parent who has questions about whether a public school's actions are legal. School law covers many different areas related to the public schools. Attorney Ullian primarily addresses situations involving special education or student discipline. Special education is one of the most complicated areas of school law. It is not surprising that many parents of children with disabilities are often unclear as to the special education services their children are entitled. Student discipline can also be a difficult situation for parents. They may be uncertain as to their child's rights to challenge certain school discipline. These types of situations may warrant the parents consulting with a knowledgeable attorney in school law and special education law.
Attorney Ullian assists parents of disabled students in the following areas:
- Special education, including advocating for students who require special education services but are not receiving them adequately.
- Accommodations for disabled students.
- Student discipline, including suspensions and expulsions.
Attorney Ullian has a doctorate degree in education and teaches School Law at Boston University and Special Education Law at Simmons College as an adjunct professor. He wrote his dissertation on legal issues facing Massachusetts public school administrators. See the Publications page on this website for information on attorney John Ullian's reader-friendly publication on school law issues.
