Assault Between Student And Teacher Or Staff Member
When a teacher or staff member is accused of physical or sexual assault on a student, the consequences can be dire, regardless of the outcome. Teachers risk losing their certifications and their jobs. An adult accused of any form of child abuse risks permanent damage to his or her reputation as well as a potential permanent mark on his or her record.

Assault Between Students
Many people feel that students leave their constitutional rights at the school door. Nothing could be farther from the truth. If your child has been assaulted by another student at school, you have every right to pursue justice for him or her.
If your child has been accused of assaulting another student, especially if he or she faces expulsion, you need to act quickly to clear his or her name. Expulsion frequently results in a permanent negative mark on a student’s record and can make it very difficult to enroll your child in any other school, damaging his or her ability to receive a quality education.
Mr. Rossi investigates all allegations of student-on-student assault thoroughly, interviewing witnesses and reviewing surveillance video of the altercation. He and his team are diligent in protecting your child’s rights and future.
