HOW WE CAN SERVE YOU:
Our law firm solely focuses its practice on the representation of children and their families regarding special education law. Our practice serves children with a full spectrum of minor and major needs and disabilities.
Every case is approached individually to meet the child’s very specific and unique requirements. With our background and experience, we can help you to identify shortcomings where your child’s rights are being neglected, overlooked or fulfilled in less than an acceptable or legally mandated manner.
We represent the parents and child throughout the child’s eligibility for special education resources and services. In California, this period starts when the child turns 3 years of age and ends at the age of 22 years old.
Our practice is also dedicated to assist families in acquiring services from the Regional Center for children ages 0 to 36 months. We will aid you in obtaining early intervention services and with the transition from Regional Center services to the School District.
