Special Education

We emphasize preventative strategies to address issues before they become disputes.

KMTG education law attorneys are eminent in the field of special education, and can successfully help you navigate the ever-changing regulations that govern the delivery of educational services to students with special needs. Our attorneys work closely with clients in advising them of their responsibilities in developing and implementing education programs for disabled students. We are committed to keeping clients abreast of changes and trends in the law through timely published Legal Alerts, seminars and workshops.

Our attorneys are skilled negotiators and litigators, having handled hundreds of special education matters, including requests for due process through mediation and representation at administrative hearings and court proceedings. We have a proven track record of success in defending clients in due process hearings and in the defense of appeals to the federal district court.
