Education Law

Education Law

Orr, Brown & Billips represents teachers, paraprofessionals, bus drivers, and other employees of school districts in disputes with school districts.  Cases involving school districts differ from private employer cases because school districts are governmental entities.  And, teachers’ cases are unique because some teachers have due process rights under the Fair Dismissal Act which requires a hearing before a nonrenewal or termination.  The partners at Orr, Brown & Billips have handled such cases for a combined forty plus years.
