What can I solve for you?
I thoroughly enjoy collaborating with school districts and charter schools on the best strategies to address the day-to-day matters in the special education environment, while also advising and training them on attaining their overall, long-term goals. Drawing on more than two decades of service in this important area, I counsel my clients on an array of student-related issues and represent them in negotiations, hearings and appeals and before various state and federal agencies.
What's it like to work with me?
Because my mother taught special education students, I learned early on how everyone in this field is deeply committed to what’s best for the child. This family background helped me understand both the teachers’ and school districts’ perspectives, which enhances my ability to serve clients today. I’m told clients appreciate the care I take in examining the relevant issues of a matter with them and ensuring they consider all their options before choosing the direction we’ll go—always together.
