I represent students and parents to resolve education-related legal disputes as quickly and inexpensively as possible.  I have successfully helped clients throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire address a wide variety of school issues, including special education, IEP services and placements, 504 plans, discipline and disciplinary hearings, and bullying. 

​My legal training is supplemented by a Master's Degree in Education (M.Ed.), a Massachusetts teaching certificate, and most importantly, personal experience dealing with the special education system on behalf of my own child.   Because of this experience and interest, I have dedicated the majority of my practice to helping students with special needs and their families.  My many years of advocating on behalf of my own child, from Early Intervention through college and into adulthood, allow me to offer the empathy, guidance and understanding that can only come from such personal experience.  

Clients range from pre-Kindergarten through Graduate School.  Disabilities of my clients have run the gamut of the disability spectrum.  Among the more common types of disabilities have been Autism, Asperger's Syndrome, PDD-NOS, Dyslexia, Depression, Anxiety, Mood Disorders, Emotional Disabilities, Language Based Learning Disabilities, Specific Learning Disabilities, ADHD, Visual Impairments, Physical Disabilities, Emotional Disabilities and Developmental Disabilities.
