Dannis, Wolliver & Kelly –


These are challenging times for California. Our Educational system strains under the weight of an endless stream of laws, rules, policies, and procedures handed down by both state and federal lawmakers. School districts struggle to effectively navigate the regulatory maze and operate under increasing uncertainty. When will we have a budget? Will the budget hold for a full year or only six months? What new strategies must we devise in order to successfully manage the critical issues in California education law?

Today, perhaps more than ever before, California school districts need sound, practical solutions for meeting the challenges of educational law head on. Districts need experienced counsel, expert advice, a responsive team of passionately dedicated individuals whose sole concern is the well being of its school clients and of public education in general.

Dannis Woliver Kelley is a diverse firm that has distinguished itself over a 35-year history as the best education law firm in California.
