A public school district must have legal representatives that share the priorities, values, character and sense of purpose of the school’s leaders. The advice provided and public representation provided by the school’s attorneys must reflect the district’s values, standards of integrity, and commitment to putting the students first. Because EdCounsel is built for public education, we share the priorities, values, character and sense of purpose of our school leaders.
Our attorneys work in client service teams that provide both a structure and a process for EdCounsel’s legal services to public schools. Our attorneys work in teams of two or more to identify and satisfy client needs, enhance client service, and build client relationships. Our team members collaborate and communicate consistently with the client and among themselves to ensure we are accessible and responsive to client needs throughout the matter or project. Although we do not charge the client for time spent collaborating internally regarding matters, we believe that the team approach provides far superior service to our clients and makes us much more effective in accomplishing client goals.
