Special Education Rights

We help parents and special needs students at every stage of a child’s education, including working to secure special education compensatory services.

Our special education lawyers and staff are accessible to the families we represent, responsive to their questions and concerns, and available to explain all educational and legal processes. We help parents understand the educational and legal issues and documents that make up your child’s educational program.

We work with parents as they prepare for and navigate IEP meetings. We represent parents and children in meetings and communications to resolve disputes with schools, including settlement of educational issues and claims for compensatory education. We represent parents in due process hearings and appeals when other options have not resulted in a reasonable resolution. We assist families in properly establishing trusts for use of compensatory education in addressing a child’s educational needs.
