We have represented the Student Association at SUNY New Paltz since 1991. We understand the rights of all students, at all levels, pertaining to everything from lockers to dorm rooms.

We also understand campus and school grounds proceedings. We are familiar with how constitutional rights are applied in these settings and we know how schools, both private and public, handle these cases. We will protect your rights at your administrative hearing.

Our firm protects the rights of students facing disciplinary measures as the result of all sorts of incidents, including events involving the following:
