We have over a decade of experience working with New Jersey School Districts and other educational entities to understand the complex special education laws and environment. The above knowledge has helped us work with parents to understand a student's special education needs and allows us to efficiently and effectively advocate for the right services. We believe that a successful case is not winning in court after lengthy and extensive litigation but efficiently getting students effective and valuable services.
Our approach has allowed us to gain the respect of school districts and educators. Many school districts understand that we only bring strong cases. The School Districts also know that we are looking out for the student's best interests. The above allows us to exhaust all reasonable options before pursuing litigation. Moreover, we have found that showing a judge that we tried our best to work with the school district to avoid litigation significantly increases our success in court. Showing the sincerity and importance of a parent's requests is often one of the most crucial parts of a special education case.
We have represented parents in special education cases in almost all school districts in Central and Southern New Jersey and against nearly every attorney representing school districts in New Jersey. We have significant knowledge and experience concerning New Jersey School Districts and their respective tactics. Our expertise and experience gained us the respect of our opponents. As a result, many school districts work with us to help special education students.
Despite the above, when we cannot reach an agreement with the school district, we are well-equipped to pursue special education litigation. We pride ourselves in vigorously advocating for the rights and needs of special education students. We have significant experience in special education litigation, including special education mediation and due process. We understand the intricacies of bringing a case in the unique administrative forums where New Jersey litigates most special education issues.
We proudly measure our success not in symbolic court victories but in making tangible, long-lasting changes to a student's education. Our goal is to set the case up in a position where the parents feel empowered and comfortable enough to work with the District, in the student's best interest, without the constant threat of litigation. We seek to leave parents feeling optimistic and at ease regarding their child's future. We also seek to place the student in a position where we have expanded their future opportunities while increasing their comfort in school.

We have helped families throughout New Jersey obtain long-lasting and effective special education services for students. Special education law is unlike traditional litigation. Getting more services or compelling a school district to provide services mean little in the long run if the services are not the correct services to address the student's special education needs. Particularly in New Jersey, there are often many different options to address the student's educational needs. We understand the complex and unique aspects of Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) and related special education documents.
