Solutions for Peace of Mind:

If you have worked in public education for awhile, you know that legal questions arise on a regular basis.  Without the advice of experienced legal counsel, these issues can become extremely complex, time consuming and costly.

How can the Legal Cooperative benefit you?

If you are a Board Member, Superintendent, or Business Manager for a school district, you are involved in activities that may have significant legal ramifications for your district, or you may be called upon to make difficult decisions that are governed by a myriad of Federal and State Laws.  If your district is a member of the Legal Services Cooperative,  you have quick and easy access to a knowledgeable attorney who can answer your questions and provide support and reassurance. As a member of the Legal Services Cooperative, school districts receive affordable, high quality legal advice and representation from our licensed and experienced attorney.
