One of the most effective ways to resolve conflicts is to be proactive. Our firm assists districts in being proactive by identifying red flags for potential conflicts or emerging hot spots in the area of disability law, and sharing strategies that we have found to be helpful from personal experience or the experience of districts who have ulimately prevailed in litigation involving these same issues. A knowledgeable staff will be able to recognize small issues before they become major obstacles and can more effectively deploy "diffusing" strategies.
