Special Education & Disability Law

Special education law is highly complex, ever changing, and often fraught with emotion. Attorneys at Thompson & Horton have mastered the nuances of special education law and are especially skilled at translating the law’s detailed requirements into actions within the classroom. In addition to being seasoned lawyers, many of us are former educators. We not only “talk the talk” but have “walked the walk.”

Our attorneys represent school districts in all matters regarding students with disabilities, including:

  • Attendance and consultation in preparation for ARD committee and Section 504 meetings
  • Representation during mediations, hearings under the IDEA and Section 504, and state and federal court
  • Hands-on training in all areas of special education and disability law
  • In-service presentations to school employees
  • Development of inter-local agreements and procedures to implement the IDEA and Section 504
  • Working with clients to impact legislation at the state and federal level

We advise administrators and board members on the status of the law, alternatives available, and associated risks. Our philosophy is to provide school districts with the maximum flexibility in making decisions so they can best fulfill their mission.
