Children with disabilities are protected by federal law under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA). In short, federal law guarantees your child the right to a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE). IDEA ensures that all types of services and programs are available to children who need them at no cost to the parent.

IDEA covers a range of needs, including: learning or physical disabilities; behavioral problems; speech and language, hearing, visual, or mental impairments; brain injury; autism; other serious health or emotional issues; and other identifiable learning disabilities.

Unfortunately, your child may not be receiving the necessary services from your school district. It is our job to ensure that your child receives all the services necessary to be successful.

FREE CONSULTATION AND CASE EVALUATION

It never hurts to ask. Take advantage of our free, no obligation initial consultation. We can then determine if we can help, or whether you even need an attorney.

Retaining an attorney to advocate your child’s interests is an important decision. We can provide you with the information necessary to make that choice.

CONTINGENT FEE BASIS

We provide representation on a “contingent fee” basis. This means it costs you nothing from the consultation to the ultimate hearing. Whether or not your case is successful, you will not pay any attorney fees.

PERSONAL SERVICE & EXPERTISE

In many of our cases, our expertise has led us to obtain the necessary services for a child through mediation or negotiation. If necessary, we will aggressively pursue litigation.

We take the time to learn about your child’s educational history and help you determine the best course for your child’s success.
