Long Island Family Law Firm Launches a Legal Response to Bullying Group
The Law Firm of Wisselman, Harounian & Associates, P.C. is proactively responding to an increased number of bullying cases in schools by holding group meetings for concerned parents, family members, and guardians at their office.
Due to the recent focus on bullying of all forms, whether physical, emotional or initiated online, lawmakers in Long Island have been increasing their crackdown on bullying tactics - part of which has been to create stronger laws to prevent future occurrences. Laws, however, do not always put a stop to all such actions. Bullies still thrive and, unfortunately, innocent children and young adults are the ones that have to pay the price. There are multiple reasons for bullying - from sexual orientation to gender to race - none of which should be tolerated. The Long Island family law attorneys http://www.lawjaw.com/
The first group meeting was held in January and the second meeting is scheduled for Monday, April 25th from 6:00pm to 7:30pm and is complimentary and open to the concerned public. At the meeting, attendees will learn what can be done to help protect the rights of the bullied child. No one should ever be forced to be harassed, at any age, and they should definitely not be forced to endure it without the proper legal guidance. The meeting will be held at the office of Wisselman, Harounian & Associates, P.C.
This group will be run by family law attorney, Lauren Chartan. Lauren completed an L.L.M (Masters in Laws, in Family Law) at Hofstra University while she was a Deputy County Attorney in the Office of the Nassau County Attorney. The subject of Lauren’s thesis was “A Legal and Cultural Response to Bullying in School”. Lauren now concentrates on all aspects of family law at The Law Firm of Wisselman, Harounian & Associates, P.C. in Long Island.
