    Our firm's attorneys help you understand not just your child's differences and disabilities, but also his or her academic potential. We can help develop an ambitious individualized educational program (IEP) that aims towards that potential. We collaborate with experts to improve IEPs during meetings with the child's IEP team, and in administrative due process hearings. 
   Lawsuits do not necessarily fix an IEP. But they push schools in the right direction and can provide children with compensation for past violations. Parents should cooperate with their district before, during and after litigation to identify their child's needs and develop appropriate programs and services.​
   We've succeeded in and out of court. We always hope to resolve any dispute with a school district without the expense and aggravation of a lawsuit.  Some school districts need more prompting than others, however.
