Education

Tressler’s Education Practice is grounded in the principle that school districts are unique environments that are best served by attorneys who are able to provide them with holistic legal services which address all of their needs.  For over thirty years, our practice has ranged from representing one of the largest school districts in Illinois to one of the smallest charter schools in the state.  Our education practice is also unlike most other law firm practices in that our attorneys have experienced the educational environment from each and every perspective of the school environment.  Our attorneys have worked inside a school district in an administrative capacity, as the General Counsel of the Illinois State Board of Education and as outside legal counsel to small and large school districts alike.  More specifically, our experience in the main issues affecting school districts—student matters, employment law, labor negotiations and litigation—is extensive.  Finally, the firm has an outstanding reputation in providing high quality legal representation in both general counsel and litigation services to local governmental entities of each and every form.  In short, we advise, counsel and represent school districts in nearly every legal issue they may face, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Board Services
  • Labor and Employment
  • Student Matters
  • Privacy
  • Constitutional Rights
  • Legislation
  • Real Estate and Construction
  • Procurement and Contracts
  • Special Education
  • Public Finance
  • Tort Immunity
  • Policies and Procedures
  • Litigation
  • Charter Schools
