We See the Fight for Justice and Standing Up for the Individual as a Noble Calling

We see the fight for justice and standing up for the individual as a noble calling. We represent all of our clients with the same level of competence, dedication and compassion. That representation extends to individuals already convicted of crimes and who are looking for hope. Mr. Asselta extends passionate appellate advocacy to the person or corporation who needs a talented attorney in a civil or administrative matter. As a student defense lawyer, Mr. Asselta fights for students of any age. He helps students navigate through the maze of issues that can arise in the public or private schools, including K-12, college, graduate, vocational and technical schools.

Make no mistake, the preparation of an appeal is a time consuming and difficult job, many times dealing with complex Constitutional issues and novel arguments. Appellate law is one of the most difficult and complicated areas of the law. It is not for the novice. Likewise, advocating to make certain that a student is treated fairly or receives the services necessary to meet their educational needs is important, demanding and requires an understanding of education law.
