Parents of Special Needs Children - Individuals

The majority of the clients of our firm are individual parents of disabled students who are in need of legal counseling in order to insure that the rights of such students under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) are protected and enforced, or who also have rights to Regional Center services in California.

Parents of Special Needs Children – Groups

For prospective clients for whom the cost of individual representation is not feasible, or whose difficulties with a school district are less severe, but who still seek legal assistance, we have developed our Pre-paid Group Legal Services program to provide individual legal assistance, but in a group format, and with the parents communicating directly with the local school district following individual review and advice from our staff, at a far lower cost than Individual representation.

Finally, we serve non-profit and for-profit corporations that:
