Experience Matters

I earned my law degree from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University in New York City. I am a former Assistant District Attorney in Queens County and Chief Litigator for the New York City Off-Track Betting Corporation. I am a skilled negotiator and an effective trial lawyer with the experience needed to protect your child's rights and interests in school disciplinary hearings.

Long Island IEP Manifestation Attorney

I am a New York special education attorney who will aggressively represent your child and family's rights and interests at a variety of special needs disciplinary hearings on matters involving:

  • School violence
  • Drugs
  • Weapons
  • Sexual assault
  • Insubordination of teachers
  • Assaults on teachers
  • Computer harassment or "cyber-bullying"

If your child is accused of violating school policy, he or she has a right to one of the following hearings:

  • Superintendent's hearing
  • Principal's hearing
  • Individualized education program (IEP) manifestation hearing
  • Due process or disciplinary hearing

I can present persuasive evidence and witnesses to benefit your child's side of the story and to negotiate skillfully on your behalf.

Representing The Educational Interests Of All Children

Repeated in-school or out-of-school suspensions are often a knee-jerk reaction by school officials and ultimately not the adequate answer to recurring disciplinary problems. Many times, a more creative solution is in order. I do everything I can to promote a continued positive relationship among you, your student and the school district. I handle appeals of disciplinary decisions as well.

When behavioral problems arise with your child and disciplinary hearings are looming, my law firm wants to hear your story. These hearings are discretionary for schools, but I have years of experience in bringing order to what may seem like a chaotic situation. Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can be of service. I have represented children in public schools, private schools, residential programs and therapeutic programs.
