Special Education Advocacy

Navigating the complexities of special education can be overwhelming. Our team acts as your special education advocate, helping you understand your child’s rights and the educational services they are entitled to under the law.

IEP Meeting Representation

Individualized Education Program (IEP) meetings are crucial for determining the best educational path for your child. Our IEP attorneys near you will attend these meetings with you, providing expert guidance and ensuring that your child’s needs are fully addressed and met.

Independent Education Evaluations

If you disagree with the school’s evaluation of your child, you have the right to request an Independent Education Evaluation (IEE). Our special education attorneys near you will assist in obtaining and reviewing these evaluations to ensure an accurate assessment of your child’s needs.

Manifestation Determination Hearings

When a child with a disability faces disciplinary action, a manifestation determination hearing is essential to determine if the behavior is linked to their disability. Our special education lawyers near you provide strong representation to protect your child’s rights during these hearings.

State Educational Complaints

If you believe that the school district is not complying with special education laws, filing a state educational complaint may be necessary. Our experienced special ed lawyers near you will guide you through this process and advocate on your behalf.

Due Process Hearings

In some cases, disputes between parents and schools cannot be resolved through mediation or complaints and may require a due process hearing. Our special education attorneys are skilled in representing families in these formal proceedings to ensure your child's educational rights are upheld.
