Will the Supreme Court Help or Harm Children with Disabilities
On January 18, 2023, the Supreme Court heard Oral Argument in Perez v Sturgis Public Schools. What is this case about? Why does the case matter? Who is likely to prevail?
We need legal advice and justice for our son. Lawyers we talk to say we have a compelling case, but they have no experience in our area. We do not have a lot of money for a lawyer, but we need a reliable and honest lawyer to help us. I would like to talk to Mr. Pete Wright and share my story and see if he can help us.
Melissa, I’m sorry for the late response. I didn’t see your comment until now. The person who built and maintained this blog retired and we are also dealing with staff shortages due to the COVID crisis.
When you have a special ed problem, especially a compelling case, you need to look for attorneys who are experienced in special education law and litigation. I can suggest two sources that may help you.
Go to the Wrightslaw Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities. Click your state. You will find attorneys who practice special education law in 49 of 50 states.
An excellent source for attorneys who specialize in this area is the Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates (COPAA). COPAA maintains a directory of attorneys and advocates so this may be the best resource for you.
