    Your Case


    Do you need a special education attorney?

    Do you need a lawyer in Florida to help you sue your school?


    Have you had it with your school? To the point that now you are Googling phrases like, “Florida Lawyer to Sue Schools?” We get it. We see it all the time. Parents and Students that have been mistreated to the point that they feel helpless, powerless and disrespected by their school. The only option left is to seek a lawyer that can sue schools.  A lawyer that can defend you from the wrongful actions of the powerful school district.

    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.

    The truth is that the consequences for retaliation against Parents or Students can be more serious than the consequences for the infraction you contacted a school lawyer for in the first place. School districts are well advised never to retaliate against families of students with special needs for advocating for their children and exercising their legal rights.

    Additionally, a consultation with a lawyer that has knowledge of school related issues can assist you in determine whether your matter is worth pursuing. This firm will not take cases that do not have legal merit.

    We are always willing to consult with families that believe they have suffered injustice at all levels of education. Call a lawyer at Montgomery Law today for a free case assessment.

    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. It is never an excuse for a District to tell you that they can not afford to provide your child with an appropriate education. Lack of financial resources should never be a reason to not advocate for a child. At Montgomery Law we would never turn down a client, that we feel has been victimized, due to a parent's inability to pay attorneys' fees.

    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 and are general resources that are not specific to the facts of your particular case. At Montgomery Law, based on the specific details of your case, we can help to inform you as to what legal or equitable remedies may be available to your child.

    3 Easy Steps

    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.
