I have a master's degree in special education and I have worked as a special education teacher and then educational consultant for 20 years before law school. Since law school I have devoted my practice to representing parents and children in all areas of school law. This has included representing parents at IEP meetings, 504 meetings, discipline hearings, due process hearings, and then appeals to federal court. This past year I have included family law issues into my practice.
Licensed since 2002
I can't say enough good things about this lawyer. Jeannette is an experienced and keenly skilled school law and special needs lawyer. She advocates for families and makes real change for the better happen in children's lives. If you ever have a problem involving your child and their school, call Jeannette first. She very likely will know exactly how to address it.
