About me

I went to law school in the 1970s because I wanted to change the world.  I was fortunate to be able to work in public interest law for 25 years, working in legal aid programs in Nebraska, West Virginia, Worcester and Fitchburg.  I ended my public interest career at the Disability Law Center where I discovered a deep and abiding interest in special education and a love for the families of children with disabilities that I represented.  I left DLC in 2002 to concentrate on the representation of children with disabilities. Over the years, my life has been enriched by the families that I have met. I work hard to repay what I have learned over the years to the community of parents and individuals with disabilities.
