GEORGETOWN, DE – McAndrews Law Offices has expanded its successful Delaware practice from its Wilmington location by opening a Georgetown office at 20151 Office Circle, Georgetown, DE 19947 focusing upon free special education services to families. McAndrews Law Offices has provided special education advocacy to parents of children with disabilities, at no cost to families, for 27 years, and has offices throughout Eastern Pennsylvania, Metropolitan Washington, DC, and now in both Northern and Southern Delaware.
The founder of the law firm, Dennis C. McAndrews, states:
“We are able to provide special education advocacy to families at no cost in Delaware, as the federal special education laws provide for school districts to pay parents’ counsel fees when they prevail in claims against the school district. We have found that at our free initial consultations, parents who come to us have very legitimate concerns about their child’s education programs, and we are able to negotiate resolutions with the school district in virtually all of our cases, as it is in the interests of all concerned to quickly and equitably resolve issues relating to children’s educational programming. Our lawyers have extensive knowledge of, and experience in, special education programming and are able to identify—and obtain–appropriate programs and services to meet the needs of children with disabilities. Our lawyers are well-versed in research-based programs in all academic, social, and behavioral domains. We have found that in many of our cases, and especially those involving discipline issues such as expulsion, children with disabilities are often not properly identified, and we are able to assist with the discipline process. In the majority of our cases, we are able to obtain compensatory education to make up for services previously denied or lost.”
McAndrews Law Offices (an 18 attorney law firm) has 10 attorneys whose practices emphasize special education law, and its attorneys possess a variety of degrees in psychology, education, and related fields to provide a comprehensive array of services to families with children who require special programs. The firm also provides extensive estate planning and special needs trust services to families of all types, and is a national leader in developing special needs trusts for children and adults with disabilities in order to preserve public benefits. The firm may be reached at 302-380-4975.
