Our special education attorneys are known and respected throughout Illinois for their mastery of special education laws and their thoughtful, practical advice. We aim to settle disputes prior to litigation, to reduce the acrimony associated with litigating these highly sensitive matters. However, we also understand that some disputes will result in litigation. In those instances, we have represented clients in all stages of litigation, including precedent-setting cases, from administrative due process hearings to the United States Supreme Court. Because of our extensive experience, we counsel clients not only about what is “legally required,” but also about what is most effective when serving special education students and their families. It is the combination of this knowledge that leads to success.
Because of the import we place on client education, prevention of legal problems, and quality control, we strive to keep clients updated with special education news and developments, including through our blog and complimentary webinars. Our attorneys regularly speak on special education topics at national and statewide conferences, including the National School Boards Association (NSBA) and the Illinois Association of Administrators of Special Education (IAASE).
