Specializing in Family Law and Special Education Advocacy
SPECIAL EDUCATION LAW
While it may seem difficult to know when to call a special education lawyer, there are some questions you should ask yourself in order to make the decision clearer. Has your child been identified or diagnosed with a disability that interferes with his or her education? Have you noticed delays or challenges in your special needs child’s learning process?
Divorces are usually stressful, and too often they are traumatic. Many questions may be keeping you awake at night. What will happen to your loved ones? How will you pay for tuition and prom dresses, mortgage payments and groceries? What is best for the children? Where can you find resolution and the peace of mind you deserve? It probably won’t be easy, but things will get better.
