Every child is entitled to educational equity.

At the end of the day, a school district has an undeniable advantage when a parent challenges their child’s educational program. They have all the experts, they have all the staff, and they have all the money to pay for very large law firms to defend them when they do something wrong.

My goal has always been to put parents on an equal footing to be able to get the best for their children and ensure they are educated and become as independent as possible.

The Storey Behind the Passion

For me, the path to becoming a special education attorney was straight forward. I vividly remember my family’s frustration with my brother’s education. He is a year younger than I and is diagnosed with cerebral palsy (“CP”), a group of neurological disorders that affect movement. CP, like many disabilities, is abroad spectrum. Some are able to move with relative ease, for others all movement may be virtually paralyzed, bound to a chair and require constant supervision for life. I suppose fortunately, my brother is more the former. At one point, I recall my mother arguing with the school principal about my brother being placed in a room by himself with only a television. He must have been in the 2nd or 3rd grade, and apparently this had been going on for over a month with no notification to my parents. The principal told my mom the school did not have the ability to support my brother, and the room with a television was all they could do. My parents, not knowing they may have had other options, moved my brother to a private school.
