Board Counsel


Thrun Law Firm has served as board counsel to Michigan schools since 1946. Our attorneys understand the issues facing Michigan school boards today. We strive to achieve solutions that are commensurate with the board’s interests and those of the school and community that it serves. Although our day-to-day practice normally involves working directly with school administrators, our attorneys always know that our primary client is the school board. This firm-wide commitment to a comprehensive school law practice combined with our decades of experience providing advice and counsel to the majority of Michigan’s public schools makes Thrun Law Firm the best choice for your board’s legal needs.
