Student Defense Advisor – Syracuse, New York

Kids today face a lot of pressure in their lives, both academic and social. In the age of electronics, kids and young adults are under a constant barrage of information about the world, their communities, and their friends. With this information comes access and expectations like no generation have ever faced. At the same time, our schools also expect more from kids. With more knowledge tested and more pressure on teachers, professors, and institutions of learning from the state, school boards, and parents, the schools we send our kids to are also under pressure to be better and do more with less money.

The competing pressures placed on our children and our schools can result in unrealistic expectations for our kids' behavior, academic performance, and social performance in school. While activities and academics often leave young people with little time and room to grow socially and make mistakes. Today, often, a child isn't given a second chance, even when the mistakes they make are age appropriate and offer learning experiences. You have options if a school seeks to punish, suspend, or expel your child unfairly. That's when you need the experience and guidance of a trusted student defense attorney.

Attorney Joseph D. Lento and the Lento Law Firm's Student Defense Team are well-versed in handling student discipline defense, from small matters to large and complex ones. They've represented hundreds of students across the country, defending them from false and unwarranted accusations, suspensions, and expulsions. You don't have to let unfair charges of academic misconduct, behavioral misconduct, or sexual misconduct crush your student's hopes and dreams. Protect their education and reputations by hiring a skilled New York student discipline attorney.
