I'm in need of a civil attorney. I'm having a problem with my university bc they dont know wtf theyre doing and only seems to do right/ what they're supposed to do when lawyers gets involved and threaten to sue. This wouldn't be the first, second or third time students had to bring lawyers up bc they're treating students like guinea pigs. I can go more in depth but I would love some legal advice on how to proceed and or get assistance to show up to the school with me to scare or threaten these people into finally doing right and grading correctly. They're f*cking up GPAs and scholarships over here bc they only want money. Smh

What's your dilemma op?
First, sorry for your troubles ScorpioLuv.
Second, I cannot give
you legal advice over the net. No attorney worth even an ounce of salt
would purport to do so. Without actually sitting down with you and
knowing ALL of the ins-and-out of your problem, it would be impossible
to do so.
That being said, if I were in your shoes, I'd look for
an Education Law attorney. There are a lot of specialties in law.
Education has a lot of rules, procedures, etc that require a specialist
well versed in the administrative side of things. It's serpentine- like
I'd go for a shark to help you navigate your problem
to a win. Ask some of the folk, who sought representation and won, to
give you the number of the attorney they used.
Compile everything germane to your situation and provide it to the
attorney. Once your attorney contacts the school, they will no longer be
able to speak to you directly about the issue. They'll have to go
through your attorney and your attorney will then consult with you.
that this will be expensive (unless you can find someone willing to do
it pro bono.) But, don't let that stop you from seeking out an
appointment. You may be able to get a free consult. A good attorney can
tell you, in consult, whether or not she thinks you have a case. She can
then tell you about fees and terms, etc.
Again, sorry for your troubles. Sometimes in this life folk make it harder than it has to be.
Good luck to you for sticking with it.
