Serving Southeast Michigan For Over 30 Years.

School Law

Our law firm has represented Michigan school districts for over 35 years. The representation of public entities is extremely important work, as the taxpaying public expects its school systems to have the most competent and useful legal advice at the most reasonable cost.

O'Reilly Rancilio's experience with local governments and schools has resulted in a unique expertise in areas of the law such as the Revised School Code, the Open Meetings Act, the Freedom of Information Act, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, the Employee Right to Know Act, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, and many other laws and regulations relating to the day-to-day business and concerns of school districts. Our history of service for school districts has also resulted in a familiarity with school board policies and other important rules that govern the day-to-day concerns inherent in running an efficient school district.

Our Michigan school lawyers also have a wealth of experience with defending school district litigation matters, whether in court or quasi-judicial proceedings such as investigations by the Michigan Department of Civil Rights.

The firm is a member of the Michigan Association of School Boards and the Michigan Council of School Attorneys. The members of the school law practice group regularly review various school law publications to stay current on the pressing issues facing school districts in the 21st century.

The combined experience of the firm's attorneys is unparalleled, and the firm is uniquely qualified to serve any and all school-related legal needs that may arise.
