Children with special needs are far more likely than those without disabilities to face charges in juvenile court. Unfortunately, many judges and prosecutors do not understand the unique challenges facing special needs children or appreciate their legal right to special education. I have great experience work with the juvenile courts and the public schools to achieve the best results possible for disabled children confronted with juvenile offenses.
Student disciplinary matters.
Parents are often overwhelmed and terrified when their public school informs them of their plan to suspend or expel their child. However, all children, particularly those with special education needs, have important legal rights in such situations. I have over twenty years experience in all aspects of student discipline, including:
- Manifestation determination hearings;
- Expulsion/ suspension proceedings;
- Civil rights violations; and
- Court appeals.
