Our Long Island law firm gets calls from around the country from parents of bullied children. We take the issue of school bullying very seriously, and unfortunately we get lots of calls from distraught parents who don't know what to do. We work hard to take legal action when necessary to help end bullying and provide compensation that is often needed for counseling and medical costs for both physical and psychological injuries. Kids at school are using popular apps such as Yik Yak, Snapchat, Burn Note and Slingshot, as well social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter to bully other students. Don't let your child be a victim.
We have a number of free resources to help:
- Our free download Fighting Back: A Legal Guide for Parents of Bullied Children provides steps to take and letter templates to send to school officials.
- If you are on Long Island, your school is mandated to have a trained professional to help with bullying issues. We have compiled the list of contacts for every school in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Fill out the form at longislandbullyreport.com to find out your school's contact.
- We also have a number of articles on our website:
