For 40 years, Walsh Gallegos has dedicated itself to serving school districts, charter schools, and other educational and governmental institutions.  Our attorneys in Albuquerque, Amarillo, Austin, Houston, Irving, Oklahoma City, Rio Grande Valley, and San Antonio are knowledgeable in every aspect of school law. We are innovators in client service and pride ourselves on practical, straightforward counsel on matters involving personnel, student issues, facilities & business, special education, and litigation.  With Walsh Gallegos, you can be confident that your attorneys have the motivation and experience to protect and promote the best interests of your district.


Because neither the State Bar of New Mexico, the State Bar of Oklahoma, nor the State Bar of Texas offers any certification of special competency in education law, no member of the firm has a certificate of specialization in that area.

Commitment to client relationships

We take pride in being school lawyers, and stand ready to partner with you to help you meet your primary mission.

We are available when you need us.

We understand first hand that you work long and hard hours. You can rely on Walsh Gallegos to be available to you for assistance at any time. We give you answers you need, when you need them, from attorneys who know school law inside and out.  That means our lawyers do not have to ‘reinvent the wheel’ each time you call and can pass the savings in legal fees on to your district.

We speak your language.

Our attorneys are known by our clients to be helpful and down-to-earth. We are adept at digesting complex legal issues and presenting them in a manner that helps you understand the law and hit the ground running. Perhaps because many Walsh Gallegos attorneys were former educators or school board members themselves, you can expect practical, straight-forward counsel.

We know school law.

Walsh Gallegos attorneys live, speak, write, and have regularly won cases on school issues day-in and day-out. Whether we are serving as featured speakers at national or state conferences, testifying before the Legislature, or conducting preventive trainings, we work with the best interests of school boards in mind.

We are innovators in the delivery of school law.

From our precedent setting wins in the courtroom to our establishment of client extranets for the easy exchange of documents we bring innovation and cutting edge technology to our clients.
