Our firm advocates on behalf of families to ensure that children with disabilities receive appropriate special education services. Our attorneys represent clients at Individualized Education Program (IEP) meetings, resolution conferences, and at due process hearings. Sharon Krevor-Weisbaum is a member of The Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates, Inc. (COPAA), an organization comprised of attorneys, advocates, parents, and other professionals who work to protect special education rights of children with disabilities. Sharon was recently co-counsel in a legal victory that ended a three-year battle against a school district in New Jersey that denied braille instruction to a blind, eleven-year-old student. After a nine-day hearing, the administrative law judge ordered the district to provide braille instruction and three years of compensatory services.
