Problems with education are important and can be difficult to solve. I have provided services to students and parents, school staff, teachers, principals and boards of trustees, academics, private training establishments, and a major university. If you need a lawyer who understands the education system, I can help.

Schooling problems

Problems with your child's school? You are not alone. I have acted for many students and families, and can help with:

  • Suspension and exclusion from school
  • Enrolment problems
  • Your child's special needs not being met, or you being required to take your child home from school
  • Discrimination and harassment

Problems facing staff, teachers and principals

I have experience of, and can assist with problems such as:

  • Performance and guidance and other employment processes
  • Mandatory reporting
  • Education council issues

Problems facing school boards

Problems such as underperforming senior managers, teachers having inappropriate relationships with students, bullying, or serial complaints by parents can arise in any school.

For voluntary boards these problems can be very hard to deal with, especially where the issue involves the principal. I can provide the help you need: promptly, confidentially, and at an affordable cost.

Tertiary Institutions

I can help with problems with NZQA, and provide legal opinions and other assistance complying with regulatory requirements.
