Amy Guerin’s versatility as an attorney who can fill multiple roles comes from her early background in public policy as well as years spent as a sole practitioner who focused on all aspects of school law, labor and employment law and civil rights.
Amy is a seasoned public advocate who has been working with school districts for more than a dozen years in capacities such as solicitor/special counsel, policy director, spokesperson and school board member. Her private practice was focused on school law, special education, and labor and employment matters. Prior to opening her firm, Amy practiced law with a suburban Pennsylvania firm that specializes in representing educational entities. Prior to that, she was the Philadelphia School Reform Commission’s first Policy Director where she was responsible for developing policy, supervising outside counsel, overseeing government relations, and managing the Commission’s quasi-judicial duties. In fact, Amy overhauled the Commission’s student expulsion practices and was responsible for two major public policy taskforces on charter school issues.
She has conducted numerous internal investigations into all manner of alleged student and employee misconduct, defended school district disciplinary decisions, routinely represented school districts before both judicial and administrative law bodies, advised on Constitutional issues that impact school operations, and similar work.
She has been a CLE instructor/guest faculty at the Pennsylvania School Solicitors Association and the Pennsylvania Bar Institute, and served for two years on the Burlington Township Board of Education.
Andrew tries to resolve problems through a collaborative process, one where the different sides work together with mutual respect to hopefully reach a desirable solution. But he is not afraid to take it up a notch and do what it takes to vigorously defend his clients against unreasonable and unacceptable positions.
Education and discipline shape much of his philosophy. As the grandson of a dean of Jilin University who educated future national leaders and a retired Chinese Nationalist Party army general who fought invading armies, Andrew brings a unique perspective to his practice in the area of School Law.
With nearly twenty years of experience in litigation, Andrew has represented a diverse group of clients, ranging from private individuals and companies (including a Fortune 500 national retailer) to public and governmental entities, authorities, and employees, as well as New Jersey school districts and their administrators, staff and employees, in the state, federal and administrative courts. In that time, Andrew has handled a wide range of legal matters, including negligence claims (motor vehicle liability, defective products liability, dangerous conditions of residential/commercial premises, and police and governmental liability), civil rights and unlawful discrimination/employment claims, public and private contract cases, and construction defect and delay claims.
Whether representing them in negligence and tort claims (from premise liability to sexual harassment), special education, anti-harassment, intimidation and bullying (HIB), public employment, public contracting/bids and school construction, and OPRA matters, or giving proactive advice to protect the legal rights or managerial prerogatives of school districts, Andrew is keenly aware of the regulatory, fiscal and administrative constraints under which boards of education operate. Efficient and effective legal services and thoughtful counsel, responsive to the specialized needs of local boards of education, are the hallmark of Andrew's approach to the practice of school law.
