Education Law

The education practice group provides a broad range of sophisticated legal counseling and services to school districts. For over 25 years, Lenox Law Firm attorneys have represented school districts across the State in litigation matters through their insurance policies. The attorneys have defended boards of education, and public school employees in personal injury, premises liability, and labor claims throughout the state and federal courts of New Jersey. Additionally, Lenox Law attorneys have defended all aspects of discrimination claims arising under the United States Constitution, New Jersey Constitution, New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, Family Medical Leave Act, Americans with Disabilities Act, Conscientious Employee Protection Act, and common law discrimination claims.

A Track Record of Success

Recently, Gregory Giordano successfully argued before the New Jersey Supreme Court on behalf of a public board of education where an individual was injured on public property off school hours, and by an animal not owned by the school. In just this year, Patrick Carrigg, Esq., again successfully argued before the New Jersey Supreme Court where the scope of employee indemnification for civil claims arising after criminal acts was defined for the first time in New Jersey. The Lenox Law firm’s education attorneys have demonstrated success in all levels of New Jersey Courts.
