Legal Services That Matter

Meet Leslie Tyree, an attorney who provides expert legal counsel to school districts across West Virginia.
Leslie is an expert in every facet of education and personnel law.

Through a shared service agreement, she has saved six counties in southern West Virginia hundreds of thousands of dollars in the last year, allowing districts to put those dollars into the classroom instead of the courtroom.

Contact us today and find out how Leslie can help your district.

MSESC Jan Hanlon, Executive Director (304) 766-0011

Leslie Tyree is a graduate of WVU College of Law with 24 years of experience. In additional to her vast experience with all areas of educational law, she served as a personnel director for a local county Board of Education for over a decade. We would love the opportunity to serve you and your school system.

Part of what makes our legal services appealing is we provide 24-hour support every day of the year for a flat fee. Other law firms charge by the hour or ask for a yearly fee and then charge additional fees for more time-consuming legal work.

Below is a list of general legal services frequently provided:

  • Twenty-four hour client advice
  • Levels 1, 2, and 3 of the grievance process
  • Training sessions for county employees
  • Office of Civil Rights matters (OCR). Equal Employment Opportunity Commission matters(EEOC)
  • Unemployment issues
  • Liaison for WV Board of Risk Freedom of Information Act
  • Contracts and Leases
  • Reduction in Force and transfer hearings
  • Parent complaints 
  • Citizens appeals
  • All personnel matters
  • Title IX
  • Other


It is reassuring when a superintendent, personnel director or board member can text or call 24/7 and not be charged an additional fee.
