Nathanya Guritzky Simon plays a major role in the firm’s school board representation in all legal, labor and special education matters. She is best known for her handling of special education matters.
Nathanya is routinely offered the opportunity to counsel New Jersey school board clients throughout the state on day-to-day matters through to complex special education litigation, when necessary. Nathanya represents clients at identification meetings, evaluation determinations, Individualized Education Plan (“IEP”) meetings, in mediation, in Complaint Investigations, at due process administrative hearings held at the Office of Administrative Law (“OAL”), and in litigation appealed into the Federal Court and State courts.
Ultimately, Nathanya believes there is no substitute for experience. Special Education is a very specialized and complex area of the law. It is only with years of experience that an attorney can know the nuances of the procedural and substantive aspects of the special education laws and cases, possess the skills necessary to effectively communicate with parents, advocates, and attorneys representing families, and maintain the skills to successfully advocate on the client’s behalf and represent their interests.
