Advocating For Students, Parents And Staff In Public School Disputes

For public school educators and administrators, criminal charges can damage reputations and end careers. Whether allegations involve criminal activity on the job or outside of work, immediate education law-focused legal representation is needed. Proactive steps in securing legal counsel are vital to not only save legal fees, but also a job.
A Fort Lauderdale Teacher Attorney Providing An Aggressive Criminal Defense
Criminal accusations often take the form of assault and battery, inappropriate contact, sexual misconduct, and misuse of technology and social media. Drunk driving or drug possession charges that occur off school grounds can also carry grave consequences for an education professional, especially if they do not self-report certain arrests or offenses during a specific period of time under certain circumstances.
Regardless of the severity of the criminal allegations, Steve Rossi often has to take a two-pronged approach to these complex legal problems. Prosecutors will pursue the criminal charges while administrators can take action that will affect the license status of the teacher, if not his or her overall job and career. They may deem a once-respected professional unfit to teach. Steve Rossi has represented individuals in state and federal court for over 30 years.
