A: It could depend on what the matter involves. If it's something about an academic issue with a child, an educational law attorney could probably be a first option to consult with. If it involves employment as a teacher, then an employment law attorney. If it involves an injury on school grounds, then a personal injury attorney. If you were injured as an employee, then a workers' comp attorney could advise. You could search for attorneys online. You could also use the tab above, "Find-a-Lawyer," to look through attorneys by region and category. You might spot other categories there that could be applicable, depending on the nature of your matter. Good luck
