I am among a handful of Ohio Attorneys who practice special education law. My focus in this area is on the parents of special needs children. I aid them in ensuring that these children receive the free and appropriate public education (FAPE) that each child is guaranteed under state and federal law.

Education laws relate to how our schools operate. They cover matters like educational standards, school district and school board authority, student attendance, discipline, and dress code requirements. An education lawyer advises school districts and school boards and represents them in disputes with students, teachers, and parents. Education lawyers also represent parents who have issues with their children's education. For example, if you think your child has been improperly suspended from school, an education lawyer will help you determine if challenging the suspension is within your legal rights.
