Is Your Child Struggling In School?

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.

Representation and Guidance in Special Education Law

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.
