An education lawyer works with clients who have been harmed in an educational setting — from preschool to postgraduate school, both public and private. An education lawyer handles a wide variety of issues, from Civil Rights cases, to Title IX offenses, to special education issues and personal injury lawsuits. Education law is a complex specialty with relatively few expert attorneys in the field. As passionate and devoted education attorneys, we proudly advocate for students and parents who have been harmed or underserved by institutions they formerly trusted.

For the most part, education lawyers do not work on contingency (where the lawyer only gets paid once you win your case). There are exceptions to this rule if you have a very good case and you are suing for extensive damages. And sometimes, your fees may be waived or vastly reduced if your attorney works for a non-profit legal aid entity. But generally speaking, if you hire an education attorney, you should expect to pay legal fees out-of-pocket for the duration of your lawsuit. Bear in mind, however, that if you succeed in your claim, the judge may sometimes order the losing party to pay your attorney’s fees — thereby making you financially “whole” for the legal expenses you’ve already paid. 


Education attorney costs vary depending upon each case, and many are paid on a contingency basis — meaning you only pay if you win your case. Here’s a quick guide to education attorney costs, feeds, and payments.

If your child has been harmed by the actions of a teacher, coach, or administrator, and your personal attempts at resolution have failed, it may be time to consult an experienced California education attorney.
