Jeffrey R. Stacey
Jeff is the firm’s primary lawyer with respect to charter application, renewal, non-renewal, and revocation litigation. Jeff has personally handled cases from complaint through to appeal and regularly represents charter school clients before the Pennsylvania Department of Education, the State Charter School Appeal Board, before the Office for Dispute Resolution in special education due process hearings, and before other state agencies and state courts.
Aggressive litigation is always a last resort, and Jeff prefers to impart his legal knowledge to prevent those conditions that lead to legal disputes. In that regard Jeff has spoken before a number of charter schools on special education and other topical issues.
Jeff has had success in a number of matters before the Pennsylvania State Charter School Appeal Board (“CAB”), including overturning school district decisions on charter applications and in charter revocation actions.
Jeff is licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and lives in Northwest Philadelphia with his wife and four children. He serves on the Board of Trustees of the Gladwyne Montessori School.
