Education and School Law

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) guarantees all students with disabilities a free appropriate public education (FAPE).  It further requires school districts to develop individualized education programs (IEPs) for each eligible child.

The law also recognizes the value of an education and gives specific instructions on what to do when a school district chooses to expel a student. It is very important that parents and guardians know their child’s rights and what options are available.

Partner Ed Feinstein has represented parents and children with special needs in educational matters for more than 30 years.  Mr. Feinstein and his legal team can help you with:

  • Early Intervention Services
  • Eligibility Evaluations and Determinations
  • Extended School Year Eligibility and Services
  • Review of multi-disciplinary evaluations and IEPs
  • Attending multi-disciplinary team and IEP meetings
  • Provision of services under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
  • Representing parents and children in special education due process hearings and other court proceedings

Sexual harassment, bullying, and gender and disability discrimination can make going to school a nightmare. Title IX, the ADA and other laws were designed to protect students from such behavior. Wecan help parents, guardians and students encountering these offensive situations by reviewing their legal options and representing families in administrative and legal actions against the responsible parties, including school boards and districts.

FDPK’s legal team has the qualifications and experience to represent you at IEP meetings, pre-hearing conferences, due process hearings, or in court proceedings.  Contact us for a confidential consultation.
