If your child needs education or special-education services and the county or school denies you access to them, we can help.

An Exclusive Focus on Education Issues
Our practice concentrates exclusively on education issues, with a primary focus on special-education law. We are selective in choosing clients so we can provide them with the personal attention and professional effort they deserve.
Special-Education Law • IEP Meetings • Child Advocacy
If your son or daughter requires special education services to be provided by the school district, you will need an Individualized Education Plan (IEP); you must qualify for these services. The school will conduct an IEP meeting to determine whether your son or daughter qualifies for the special education he or she requires. We can represent you at the meeting and any subsequent adversarial proceeding.
If your son or daughter is denied eligibility for special education, if you are dissatisfied with the IEP or with the way the IEP is being administered, you have a right to appeal administratively or file a state or federal compliance complaint. We have considerable experience advocating for our clients' interests in all these proceedings.
If your child's public school has threatened suspension or expulsion or has already suspended or expelled your child, we can challenge the school's action. We will also represent your child in any subsequent appeals.
