The month of May is a critical time for families who are struggling with special education issues. Final grades are approaching, evaluations are being completed, critical IEPs meetings are scheduled, and many families face life-altering decisions such as transferring to a private school, negotiations over appropriate school district programs, Extended School Year issues, major transition issues, and a wide array of other time-sensitive issues. Therapists, psychologists, counselors, tutors, educational consultants, psychiatrists, and other professionals are often reticent to suggest to struggling families to consult with an attorney. Issues such as cost and the impact upon future relationships with the school district weigh heavily upon families and their trusted professionals. In this FREE seminar, we will discuss the circumstances when families are best served by consulting an attorney, as well as when legal intervention is either unnecessary or unwise. Issues of cost will be discussed, noting that our firm provides free initial consultations, and handles a great many cases on a contingency basis where families do not provide hourly fees on an ongoing basis to our firm.
