About this firm

Asselta Law was founded by attorney Richard Asselta. Mr. Asselta had the unique fortune to begin his career at a law firm that exclusively handled highly complex and technical federal criminal matters. For the past 17 years, Mr. Asselta has built on that experience. He combined his skills as a trial attorney and his knowledge gained from being the education law attorney for a school district to establish Asselta Law.

For nearly 10 years Mr. Asselta was the education lawyer for a large public school district. Drawing from that unique experience, the firm specializes in education and school law. Asselta Law assists students of all ages with academic, disciplinary, financial and special education issues or disputes with public, private and charter schools, including K-12, college, graduate, vocational and technical schools.

The firm also provides high quality individualized representation to clients who have already been found guilty and have been told there is nothing further that can be done. Mr. Asselta represents clients at both the state and federal appellate level and in Animal and Pet Law matters. The firm also handles civil and administrative appeals, including appeals of student suspensions, student expulsions and academic and professional misconduct.

Asselta Law is passionate about insuring that our clients receive the highest caliber legal services. Mr. Asselta is committed to working with you to develop a comprehensive plan and to ensure that you are provided the representation that you deserve. For further explanation of the practice areas that Mr. Asselta can assist you with, please review our Practice Areas page.
