We hired Mr. Asselta after having issues in our last semester in a very competitive program in college. We had a very limited time frame to get things done. Mr. Asselta is very through, fast at getting things done and he kept us up to date every step of the way. He was always honest, he never misled us. He worked on our case day and night. Overall, Mr. Asselta did a wonderful job. We are getting ready to go back to school and would not be able to do that without his help. Mr. Asselta worked very hard and exceeded our expectations. We would refer him to anyone needing legal help without hesitation.
My husband and I recently hired Richard Asselta to represent us to our local school board. Our 13 yr. old daughter had been over zealously and inappropriately accused of a level IV offense. She was suspended from school for 10 days, and was facing expulsion. Time was limited, as an administrative hearing was fast approaching. Richard spent hours on the phone with us, making sure he had a full understanding of the situation. He then submitted a letter to the school board's legal team asking that the charges against our daughter be dismissed due to lack of evidence, procedural violations and unfair treatment. That's all it took. The letter was extremely well written and difficult to refute. As a result, we never had to attend an administrative hearing. The level IV offence was removed from our daughter's record and the days she was suspended were turned into excused absences. Obviously, we couldn't be happier with the results. My husband and I were getting nowhere before we hired Richard. I am certain that without his representation, our daughter's record would have been forever tarnished because of one small, unintentional mistake. I would highly recommend hiring Asselta Law to anyone facing similar circumstances. Thank you Richard!
I was so lost when my school told me I could not return for classes in the spring. I had a ton of school loans and no other school would transfer my credits. I called a lot of lawyers and when I spoke to Richard I knew he could help me. He was a straight shooter and got right to the point. He laid out a plan of attack and stuck to it. The result was more than what I wanted. They let me back in and let me finish without owing more money!! I am so happy and recommend him if you ever have an issue with school.
After trying for 2 years to get my son the help he needed in school, I had enough. I knew it was time to get a lawyer since the school was not taking me seriously. I called Richard and knew he was the lawyer for me! He was kind, patient, and knew a lot about ESE accommodations and had a plan immediately that would help my son. In less than a month we got what I had been trying to get for years!!! I couldn't be happier and could sing the praises of Richard for days!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!
Richard Asselta did exactly what he said he was going to do. He told me that my situation was a 50/50 chance of going either way. However, with the professional letter he wrote, there was no way that I was going to lose the case. His letter was so powerful that the opposing side chose to change their mind and even gave me more then what I was asking for in the letter. This prevented a long legal battle and saved me thousands of dollars. He is the greatest lawyer I have ever come in contact with in my life. He puts the client first before the money that he could make. I will use Richard Asselta for all my needs that fall under his specialty. Thank you again Richard.
