Creatively resolving education conflicts
Because the relationship of parents and students with their school district is ongoing, our general approach is to preserve the relationship on good terms by seeking an agreeable resolution to any conflict through negotiation. However, we do not hesitate to propose any available legal remedies in the event that the parties involved are not cooperative. Our primary goals are protecting our clients’ rights and ensuring that children have access to the education they deserve.

Special education needs
When your child has special education needs, the first step is to obtain an Individualized Education Program (IEP), which describes a precise plan of action for teachers and other school personnel. Once the IEP is in place, we help parents ensure that the program is properly implemented to address their children’s special needs. We also work with you to secure and maintain related services that your child needs and deserves.
