    Special education law - plaintiff's attorney representing children with disabilities attending public schools.

    21 years

If you need help with your child's IEP or 504 plan, or if you have questions about the way the school district works, or why your child is not making progress, I can help.

In 2003, I began working for California's largest education law firm. As a school attorney, I worked in California and Georgia. After 9 years, I stopped representing public schools to help families: I opened my own firm to represent children with special needs.

When you work with an attorney who has experience working on the "opposite side," there is an advantage to you. I understand how districts operate.

I have extensive knowledge of districts' legal, education, budget, policy, and procedural positions on many issues. This helps you because I understand why districts make certain decisions and how these decisions impact your child.

Amazing Attorney for children in special education.
Christy is so amazing when it comes to children in special education. She takes the time to get to know her clients and listens to her clients and is very compassionate about the children that she represents I could not have been more happy of the results that she has delivered for my children and would not even consider looking anywhere else for a special education attorney she is the best Without a doubt so if you want results results i highly recommend Christy.

Amazing champion for children with special needs....
We couldn't have been more impressed with the advocacy and defense Christy provided to us for our child with special needs. From the minute we met Christy, she took the time to get to know our child, his environment, and our family. Christy proved through the handling of our case, that she has a true love of children, empathy and understanding for families, and strong passion for ensuring our special children are afforded educational opportunities required under the law. Christy is now a dear friend of our family, and a true champion for our child....and we would highly recommend her to any family needing assistance with the legal area of special needs and education law.
