California students have the right to receive a meaningful education. The Law Office of Meagan Nuñez in San Diego focuses exclusively on disability and education law. We are committed to helping parents understand their rights and advocating on behalf of clients in obtaining the special education services, Social Security and In-Home Supportive Services to which their children are entitled.
We are experienced special education lawyers who will work with you every step of the way. If your child is having trouble in school — socially or academically — the source of the difficulty could be a lack of proper special needs education services tailored to your child's specific needs. We are well-versed in all areas of educational law. Our child advocacy services are well-respected in Southern California.
Whether you have reason to believe your child has a disability that is affecting his or her educational success, or have run up against a wall in obtaining special education services at any stage of the process, we are here to provide effective guidance and skilled legal representation to help you ensure that your child's needs are properly fulfilled.
Our comprehensive special education practice includes zealous representation and compassionate guidance in all aspects of special education law, including:
- The right to a meaningful education: Our experienced special education lawyers are zealous advocates in all aspects of special education and the anti-discrimination laws aimed at ensuring students with disabilities obtain a free and appropriate public education. From reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities to ensuring that your child's right to an individualized education program, we provide experienced counsel and representation aimed at obtaining the services your child needs for success.
- Special education hearings and dispute resolution: The process of obtaining special education benefits has many layers. When school disciplinary matters arise, the law sometimes requires schools to determine whether a disability precipitated the child's conduct. Parents and their children have important due process rights when issues related to special education arise. We guide parents and children through the many potential hearings and zealously advocate on behalf of our clients when litigation is necessary to assert rights to special education services.
- Special education in charter schools and nonpublic institutions: Many students with special education needs are enrolled in charter schools or placed in a private school. Charter schools are not excused from the requirements of federal law to provide access to special education programs. Students with special education needs who are placed in private schools may qualify to have their tuition paid. We help parents guard their educational rights in nonpublic school and charter school settings.
- Additional benefits for children with disabilities: Parents of children with disabilities often have additional financial concerns and needs outside of the school setting that require additional services. We help qualified clients seek Supplemental Security Income or In-Home Supportive Services under California law.
