Episode 8: Everyday Law Goes Back to School with Neal Takiff

Neal Takiff and his firm, Whitted Takiff & Hansen, specialize in education or school law. His firm is perhaps the only law firm in Illinois that represents both sides of school law, representing both parents and school districts (though not in the same case). Takiff’s position is that the common interest for both sides is the student, and that in most cases, both families and school districts are trying to solve a problem and do the right thing for the student.
