The Project

I am creating a Special Education Clinic composed of private attorneys who will will meet regularly with parents of children in need of special education services to educate them about substantive topics within special education law, practical advocacy tips, and methods of resolving disputes under IDEA. The result will be a sustainable pool of pro bono attorneys offering legal advice and services to parents of children with disabilities. I will also be providing direct representation and performing community outreach.
