Special Education Law

Protecting the Rights of Students with Disabilities Throughout South Carolina.

Let’s face it, navigating an IEP meeting is overwhelming. Trying to figure out how to help your child who is struggling or behind grade level is beyond stressful.

You voice your concerns to your child’s teacher and principal, but your child is not making meaningful progress. You are upset and starting to feel defeated. If this sounds familiar, do not give up.

I am here to help you. As an IEP attorney and advocate, I am able to assist special needs parents behind the scenes by helping you prepare for IEP meetings, or, when necessary, I will vigorously defend your child’s educational rights at mediation, Due Process Hearings, or Manifestation Determination Hearings.

I am here to guide and educate you so you can be a strong, meaningful advocate for your child.
