Avoiding Catastrophic Results In School Suspensions

All education facilities, including, but not limited to, middle schools, high schools, colleges and universities located within New Hanover, Pender and Brunswick counties have a quasi-judicial process related to the disciplinary suspension.

Each school in North Carolina has its own judicial process. These vary greatly and can include punishments from probation to expulsion, based upon the alleged conduct. These sanctions can have catastrophic impacts on the student’s academic career and future employment. Contacting experienced school-suspension attorneys can be a good first step in helping you navigate this process and determine whether or not a punishment is justified. At Mason, Mason, and Smith Attorneys at Law, our attorneys have extensive experience with the school system and their unique judicial processes.

Your Rights And The School Suspension Process

This process is invoked at any time a student is allegedly in violation of the respective codes of student conduct. Often, students and students’ parents are surprised to learn that an alleged act taking place off-campus could subject them to the school’s judicial process. We hear from many students and parents who were told that they do not need an attorney nor are they entitled to an attorney. That is not true.

You are entitled to an attorney, and you should have one. The student has rights, and we can preserve those rights. If you are currently, or will soon be, involved in a disciplinary hearing, do not delay in contacting us. We have successfully defended many students of all educational levels. Our initial consultation is free. Call us today at 910-444-3505 to schedule an appointment to put our experience to work for you.
