Arizona Special Education Lawyers
Protecting Your Child's Rights
If your child is having a problem at school and you are not sure where to turn, we can help.
Are you sure the school is complying with the law to provide your child with the education to which he or she is entitled under both federal and state laws? We explain and advise you of the legal rights both you and your child have. We provide legal advice and strategy for you to advocate on your own, or we can provide legal representation of both you and your child. We can assist you as much or as little as you want or need.
Our education lawyers are a mom of a young adult with special needs who navigated the special education system for over 12 years, and a former special education teacher and school administrator who taught special education, wrote hundreds of IEPs, attended hundreds of IEP meetings, and trained and supervised special education teachers.
We are special education attorneys with backgrounds as litigation and trial lawyers. We know the federal and state laws and the rules and regulations; we know parents' legal rights and children's legal rights. We can provide the legal advice and strategy so you can act as a parent advocate for your child, or we can provide the legal representation for you and your child at IEP meetings, MDRs (Multidisciplinary Review hearings), REDs (Review of Existing Data meetings), METs (Multidisciplinary Evaluation Team meetings), transition meetings, and mediations. We can review your child's IEP and prepare you for your upcoming meetings. We have been advocating for students for over 10 years. Children are our first priority.
Before We Were in the Courtroom, We Were in the Classroom
School districts, charter schools and private schools have attorneys advising them and protecting their interests. You and your child should have an education attorney on your side to protect you both, to advise you of your legal rights, and to assure you that your child is receiving the education to which he or she is entitled to under the federal and state statutes and regulations. Remember, BOTH you and your child have legal rights. As lawyers, not only do we have the legal knowledge and skills to represent you, but we also have personal experience in special education.
We can explain your legal rights and provide you with the legal advice and strategy to assure you that your child is receiving the education to which he or is she is entitled under the law. We will work with you as much or as little as you need. We can represent you or just advise you. We can provide you with the tools and resources you need to advocate for your child. We help you navigate the world of special education law. We have been there, and we have navigated the special education waters ourselves and for our clients.
Whether your son or daughter attends school at a public school or charter school, we can help with legal advocacy and education law concerns and problems of all types, including:
