Special Education

We have knowledgeable attorneys on staff who can guide school districts through difficult situations as they emerge so that appropriate procedures are followed.  This includes advice regarding special procedures for special education students when disciplinary matters are involved.

Our firm’s special education attorneys share a wealth of knowledge and experience regarding local education agency obligations to students with disabilities, including duties under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and related New Jersey laws and regulations. We have advised and represented school districts in every aspect of special education law and practice – from IEP team meetings, mediations, and due process hearings to state compliance and OCR complaints. Our special education attorneys also provide significant preventative legal services – including workshops and on-going legal counsel – to assist our clients in solving problems before they erupt into litigation and to allow them to focus on developing programs.
