Special Education

Because of our background and experience in both education law and disability within our own lives, the attorneys and staff at Wiscarson Law understand the impact that a special needs child can have on an entire family – including the crushing financial effect. Throughout the history of Wiscarson Law, we have always been sensitive to this issue and have developed a law practice that is efficient and serviceable for parents.

Guardianship

When you need help establishing or modifying a guardianship for your child with special needs, Wiscarson Law can assist you throughout all phases of the process. Our attorneys are knowledgeable about the intricacies of State requirements. We will discuss with you the extent to which your child is unable to independently manage his or her personal or financial matters, help decide which kind of fiduciary best fits his or her needs, and file the necessary paperwork to commence the proceeding.

Higher Education

The explosion in the number of people pursuing education and training after high school has led to more conflicts for students with disabilities as they try to access programs and obtain equal opportunities. Wiscarson Law can help you with all disability-related disputes, including ADA accommodations and claims of discrimination or harassment. Our attorneys will help you consider all of your options, including the institutional grievance process, civil actions in state or federal court, or complaints to the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights.
