Do you need a special
education attorney?

Do you need a special education attorney? It is understandable to be hesitant to approach a school lawyer. Parents often think that the presence of an attorney or an advocate will make their School District more defensive or in the worst case lead to retaliation against their child.

How much does it cost
to retain an education attorney?

There is no predetermined answer to this question. Every case has unique challenges. What we can say is that we work within each client’s budget to ensure that we are able to advocate for children at all income levels. Often times children in lower income school districts need the greatest level of advocacy.

I know that the school has done wrong, but I don't know what I am looking for. Help.

This is not unusual! Especial for Parents that have no experience in education. How are you supposed to know what you are entitled to? Yes, school districts are required to provide you with procedural safeguard notices, but these notices can be complicated to read.

Give Us a call and tell us a little bit about what is going on. We will set up FREE in personal consultation with you and your child as soon as possible.

Question: My child has been through enough, why do I have to bring them?

Answer: We can’t advocate for someone that we’ve never met. In special education law there are mounds of paper that attempt to describe who a child is, but one face meeting can tell us more (almost) than a lifetime of records. Of course, if there is a medical condition that doesn’t allow your child to come into one of our offices, we completely understand.

Record review: In advance of the meeting we ask that you scan and email or fax (or mail) us some of your child’s records so that we areprepared to discuss your concerns. If this is not possible, or if there are no records, we will listen to your concerns at our meeting.

After we have had a chance to review your child’s records and the opportunity to meet with you and your child, we will make a plan as to some possible next steps. Whether it be to attend an IEP meeting, request evaluations, file for Due Process, or something else entirely.

Enter into an Attorney / Client Relationship: If we agree on the next steps and you would like to retain Montgomery Law for your special education law needs, we will enter into a written agreement. It is important to note that until we enter into a formal agreement no Attorney / Client Relationship exists and you should not consider anything from any previous conversations to be legal advice.


For years without success we tried to get appropriate services for our child with special needs. But our attorney Joe Montgomery amicably and quickly settled our differences with the district. My child is finally going to get the services she needs to progress. We are so grateful!


The school fail to provide my son what his in tittle to when he couldn’t go to school due to medical disability my son was home because the school was not handicapped accessible, when I called Joseph Montgomery he told me not to weary he will take of it they did a wonderful job. Now my son is in a great school i didnt have to do anything but give any paper work about son.  May God bless you all.

Happy Parent

Choosing legal representation can often be overwhelming. The best decision I made was to be represented by Mr. Montgomery. His professionalism was only surpassed by his knowledge of the law. Not to mention his reasonable rates! Look no further.
