We stand by schools, superintendents, school boards, and legislators by providing full-service legal representation in their time of need.
Meet Our Founder
Lawyer. Speaker. Champion of Public Education.
Geneva Jones is an expert in education law and has spent her entire career representing public schools in their mission to provide students — especially those living with disabilities or socio-economic disadvantages — an education.
Geneva is a natural public speaker who regularly provides professional development to educators, gives keynote and conference speeches, and acts as a media commentator for local and national outlets.
Geneva entered the field of school law in an atypical way. Shortly after she enrolled in law school, her son was diagnosed with autism. To better assist him, Geneva decided to focus her studies on education law specifically. She experienced the struggles that families of neurodiverse children face on a daily basis, and she strove to work alongside school systems to provide the safest, most effective environments for all school-aged children.
While advocating for her own child, Geneva realized she could accomplish the highest good by representing school districts and education agencies. Working on the “inside,” Geneva makes change in a collaborative manner with school districts by influencing policies and procedures that impact not only the individual student, but children throughout the district and country.
Besides her pointed education, Geneva has extensive practical experience in all areas of school law, specializing in the areas of special education, disability, and civil rights. She is licensed and recognized in Texas, California, and New York. Geneva was selected to be a Texas “Super Lawyer” in 2021 — an honor that no more than 5% of the lawyers in the state receive. She was also awarded a Super Lawyer “Rising Star” designation in 2014 in California, and again in 2018 and 2019 in Texas.
