For more than 30 years the attorneys at Spesia & Ayers have been providing outstanding legal representation to colleges, public school districts and private educational institutions throughout the State of Illinois. Led by firm partner Jeffrey S. Taylor, Spesia & Ayers’ team provides a wide spectrum of services to our clients in the field of education.
Education or “school” law is not a single area of law, but rather, a wide-ranging field that often encompasses the interplay between a multitude of state and federal statutes and regulations. This dynamic field necessitates reliable advice and representation of skilled attorneys, across several practice areas.
The attorneys at Spesia & Ayers have the experience and expertise educators rely on to ensure that their educational institutions make sound policy decisions and comply with state and federal law and regulations, as well as contractual obligations. We equip our clients with the information and advice needed to navigate the complex and challenging issues posed to educators. It is our job to help clients prevent risk when possible and manage risk when it cannot be prevented. We guide our clients through internal processes, including due process hearings, agency actions, and if necessary, litigation through trial and appeal.
The attorneys of Spesia & Ayers stand ready to assist your educational institution in working through the complexity of today’s legal environment. Call us today for a complimentary consultation.
