Special Education

Our legal team is uniquely qualified to obtain results that maximize educational opportunities for students with special needs, elementary through college.

The law surrounding special education in Pennsylvania is a complicated and often confusing set of rules and regulations that can leave students with special needs and their parents feeling helpless when they are not being provided with an appropriate educational plan.

Our attorneys have served as solicitors for public schools in Northeastern Pennsylvania for over thirty (30) years, and possess a wealth of experience and knowledge in this unique area of law.  Having practiced in the area since the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act was enacted and before that the Americans With Disabilities Education Act of 1973 (Section 504), our experience will help students establish individualized educational plans appropriate for the student based upon their unique needs.

Additionally, our attorneys have been involved with literally hundreds of expulsion and disciplinary proceedings which can adversely affect a student’s education.  Due to the precise statutory guidelines that control student discipline, prompt attention to these matters is a necessity.

For over thirty (30) years, we have worked on behalf of students, their families, as well as school districts in Northeastern Pennsylvania to create reasonable accommodations for students with special needs of all ages.  We now use this unparalleled experience to achieve the maximum educational benefits on behalf of special needs students and their families.
