Our Special Education Advocacy Law Firm
At Littman Krooks, we take a family-centered approach to special education advocacy and special needs planning. We understand that family members are the most effective advocates for their loved ones with special needs, and our goal is to provide the tools to make them successful.
We are sensitive to the future implications of each decision that we help you make, whether it relates to financial planning, government benefits, the obtaining of a free, appropriate education, guardianship, or transitioning to life after high school. So our highly credentialed attorneys – who include professionals named multiple times to the New York Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers in America lists – will advise you with an eye to your child’s long-term needs.
We serve beyond the courtroom and school district, as authors, board members, educators, and community volunteers. In short, our attorneys and staff members don’t simply practice special needs planning and special education law; they are committed to lifestyles of advocacy:
- They are respected speakers and writers in the field of special needs planning and special education advocacy.
- They are leaders within non-profits devoted to individuals with special needs and their families, including a former president of the Special Needs Alliance, a national group that helps families with special needs planning. These ties to advocacy and social service organizations enable us to assist families as they navigate the diverse and complex special needs system.
- They have children of their own with special needs. In addition, one of our attorneys began her career as a service coordinator, advising families on programs available to their loved ones with special needs. Her personal and career experiences inspired her to attend law school in order to more effectively advocate for families.
This immersion in the daily challenges faced by individuals with special needs and their families enables us to craft legal solutions that are informed by real world experience.
Preparing your child with special needs for a life characterized by dignity,independence, and security requires planning. Our New York special needs planning and special education advocacy attorneys have the experience to help you meet that responsibility.
