GRT is one and the only California law firm 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 individual teachers and 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 school teacher or certificated education employee and are looking for individual teacher credential defense, to decertify from CTA, or for an alternative to your current representation, Goyette, Ruano & Thompson, Inc. can provide you and/or your union with options and a roadmap to accomplish the transition.

We are focused on our primary and only mission of providing services to teachers so they can concentrate on what they love to do: teach.
