Education Attorney in Burtonsville
Effective Representation in Montgomery County & Surrounding Areas
Students, especially, those with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, autism, Down syndrome, and other special needs, are entitled to have their educational needs met. Local schools and school boards should not give up on their special needs students and claim that there is nothing more that can be done.
Weak excuses and lackluster efforts by teachers, administrators, and school boards could violate the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). If you believe that the rights of your child have been violated or you need assistance from an attorney who will advocate for the rights of your child in need of an education directed to your child's needs, reach out to the Law Office of Eshigo P.
