Student Defense Advisor - Bakersfield, CA

Schools in Bakersfield, CA — from elementary schools through high-profile graduate institutions — are cracking down on alleged student misconduct.

Many schools are now recommending steep sanctions for other school-related issues and concerns, such as apparent failure to progress. If your student attends a school in Bakersfield, CA, they need to be aware of their rights. Any of their teachers or peers could easily accuse a student of misconduct with little proof.

Your school's investigatory and disciplinary system may not realize how little proof backing up your child's misdeeds may exist until their reputation has sustained a critical hit. And many failure to progress allegations result from misunderstandings or mistakes in the first place. You may feel like you're at the mercy of your school district if you're in this situation.

But the truth is, you have options.

The Lento Law Firm is passionate about ensuring that your student's future remains bright. With the expert help of student defense attorney-advisor Joseph D. Lento, you and your student can hope to make it through stressful student disciplinary events to the most successful outcome possible.
