Poyner Spruill Welcomes Education Law Practice Group

Special Education

One of the most highly litigated areas for school districts, nationally and locally, is special education. We value close relationships with our clients and know the best defense to a legal claim and its related costs is to avoid the claim in the first place.

We provide our clients with advice and strategies for avoiding liability, and counsel that is not only legally sound, but also operationally practical. We handle matters involving special education for school districts throughout the state, including special education grievances; rights of students under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (“ IDEA” ), and the Americans with Disabilities Act, as well as Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. We have experience representing school districts in Individual Education Plan (“ IEP”) meetings, before the Office of Administrative Hearings, and court systems in these matters.
