Initial Legal Consultation

We begin by meeting with parents for an initial one-hour, comprehensive legal consultation. Our consultation fee is credited towards your retainer once we are retained. We offer both in-person and remote initial legal consultations. Your child’s school records are comprehensively reviewed in advance of our meeting, and we propose solutions to advance your child’s education.

Scope of Legal Services

Whether you are seeking legal review of your child’s IEP, parental advocacy coaching, or legal representation at PPT meetings to seeking outplacement, facing expulsion or require an attorney for mediation or due process litigation, we have you covered. We offer various billing arrangements depending on the scope of legal services. The most common billing arrangement we offer is hourly at competitive rates. We also on occasion offer hybrid payment plans for a certain scope of legal services and structure payments for mediation and due process litigation so families can budget their expenses.  We will advise you on the best option during your initial legal consultation.
