"It is doubtful that any child may reasonably be expected to succeed in life if he is denied the opportunity of an education."
- Brown v. Board of Education, 347 U.S. 483 (1954)
Navigating the education process can be confusing to parents and guardians. You need a trusted attorney to provide you with an analysis of your child’s situation, instruct you on how to handle the matter, provide assistance and advocate for you and your child’s rights under both federal and state law. Our goal is to support the whole child and help the child reach his or her potential in school and beyond through our legal advocacy.
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (“IDEA”) is a federal law that requires states and public agencies to provide early intervention, special education and related services to children with disabilities. New Jersey has its own statutes, which govern the rights of disabled children and the special education services that they are entitled to.
We represent and advise families on all aspects of special education disputes including evaluations, eligibility, IEP development, program and placement disputes, school discipline, mediation, unilateral and out-of-district placements, litigation, and settlement negotiation.
