The Goyette, Ruano & Thompson, Inc., Labor & Employment Division includes specialists in representing teachers and other certified education employees in California, in partnership with Teacher Guardian and CA Independent Teachers . We are one of the only California law firms that represents California teachers in unions that are not affiliated with the California Teachers Association (CTA) or the California Federation of Teachers (CFT). Our clients are independent teacher associations that have complete control of their policies, dues (usually a half to a third of what traditional teacher unions charge), and representation.
If you are a California public or charter schoolteacher or certificated education employee and are looking for an alternative to your current representation, Goyette, Ruano & Thompson, Inc. can provide you with options and roadmap to accomplishing the transition. Even if you need license defense, we can help.
