  • Constitutional & Civil Rights Claims - Due Process, First Amendment and Equal Protection
From the Parent of an Ivy League Student With Discrimination Claims

I recommend Mr. Boyd without reservation and with great appreciation and respect. This is not something I say lightly. Mr. Boyd provided superb legal advice and intervention.

Without Mr. Boyd's help, guidance, and most of all action we would never have be able to resolve our problem; with his help we did and were reimbursed for what we had paid the institution as well as Mr. Boyd's fees.

Mr. Boyd very quickly understood our predicament and more importantly understood how to resolve it. He did so with great finesse and a well worked out strategy, both indispensable when challenging an institution of almost unlimited resources.

I think that the clearest recommendation I could give him is that when a close friend found himself in serious trouble with his educational institution, I recommended Mr. Boyd to him. With precisely the same combination of finesse, strategy and empathy he resolved my friend's extremely perilous situation.

Client Reviews

"Boyd Law Group were very supportive through the process. They worked hard and diligently from start to finish. They were very responsive and ensured I understood my rights and were there every step of the way. I can't thank both Patrick and Lorena enough for all the hard work they put in for me through this emotional process. True professionals! Thank you so much!" Lilly

"Patrick, Steve and the team at Boyd Law Group not only achieved a resolution that was more than fair...they were far more responsive and upfront than i would have initially expected given past experiences. They worked with me financially, and were very fair with managing my expectations. Moreover, given the group's experience, they are fair but strong negotiators, great listeners and put me, as a client, at ease. I won't think twice about approaching Boyd Law Group in the future...and recommending them to family/friends and coworkers in need of advice." Victor R.
★★★★★

I would strongly recommend Mr Boyd and his team." Anonymous
