At Gould & Berg, LLP in White Plains, NY we work with both high school students and university level students regarding issues in the learning environment and frequently we have had situations at the graduate level where the student is having problems. They can be academic problems, they can be emotional problems and what we try to do as any parent is try to protect that student’s interest going forward. Frequently, we are able to negotiate a situation where the student is able to withdraw from a program in good standing so that the student can be protected by taking a leave of absence and then coming back to the program, or in the ability of being enrolled in a program at a different institution. We work with the parents, the students, and the institutions to ensure that the student can pursue their interests going forward.
