Higher Education / School


Having an attorney advocating for your child can make a difference when attempting to navigate the complex world of special education law. Few attorneys understand the services, supports, and appropriate educational placements guaranteed by law, so choosing an attorney who does is important. Knowledgeable counsel can support you through the evaluation and Individualized Education Program (IEP) process, due process hearings, and in many other common educational and disciplinary situations. We will always work to ensure the best outcome for your student.

Masano ◊ Bradley represents students in all areas of special education and school discipline matters, whether arising from the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, or other laws or regulations.

Our services include assistance with:

  • Identifying and eligibility for special education services
  • Challenging a school’s determination of what a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) looks like for your student
  • Addressing a school’s previous or ongoing failure to provide appropriate services
  • Ensuring that your student’s IEP provides for appropriate placement, instruction, supports, and services, and that the IEP is enforced
  • Representing students at disciplinary hearings
  • Filing for due process hearings to challenge the appropriateness of a proposed placement or service

  • Review of proposed IEPs and Service Agreements
  • Appeals of district or hearing officer decisions
