Navigating the special education process isn't easy. And the stakes could not be much higher. But, take a deep breath; you do not have to do this alone. You can use an advocate.   

I have been an attorney for over 25 years. I also served eight years on my local school board. In addition to knowing your child's rights, I know how schools work and how administrators think.  Most importantly I have been where you are with my own child. 

Your advocate for most steps along the way does not need to be an attorney. In fact, most law practices would not want to be involved unless a lawsuit is imminent or filed.

I want to be there for you from day one. My goal is to get your child's needs met without resorting to a lawsuit. I want to help.
