LEGAL ADVICE

The laws controlling your child's special education rights are complex. Finding the answers to your questions can be daunting. Having a lawyer on your side is empowering when navigating special education challenges. I can advise you of your child's rights through each personal situation.

ATTEND ARD MEETINGS

If you'd like support during your child's ARD meetings I am glad to attend. I will point out moments where I notice incorrect statements of law and when your child's rights are not being upheld.

COMMUNICATE WITH SCHOOL DISTRICT

Having an attorney handle certain communications with the school and district can be hugely helpful. This is particularly true when the parents and the school disagree about what the child is entitled to per the law. I know that your relationship with the district is a long-term one, so I handle these communications with courtesy and professionalism.
