WHY BOARDING SCHOOLS CHOOSE US

Nationally-renowned independent schools throughout the United States rely on Schwartz Hannum PC to provide the clarity, foresight, and legal guidance necessary to make smart choices. SHPC attorneys understand the unique dynamics of the school environment, how each decision – from hiring and admissions to governance and discipline – affects relationships with communities, students, parents, alumni, faculty, staff, and governing boards. They translate that understanding into solutions that enable independent schools to focus on offering and expanding superior educational programs. Should disputes arise, SHPC attorneys have extensive experience in litigating school-based cases before state and federal government agencies, courts, and arbitration panels.
