Dedicated Special Education Attorneys

Tully Rinckey understands how important your child’s education is and what can happen if their unique educational needs are not met. Our attorneys are zealous advocates for children with special needs, assisting parents with:

  • Obtaining remedial education and educational placement.
  • Attending Individualized Education Plan (IEP) meetings with our parent-clients.
  • Structuring IEPs or plans under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (504 plans)
  • Arranging speech, occupational, or physical therapies, as well as other special education services.
  • Appeals to state review officers.
  • Due process complaints and hearings.

Educator and School District Legal Representation

In addition to assisting parents and students, our attorneys have handled numerous matters for school officials, districts, and teachers as well, including:

  • Reviewing contracts and agreements.
  • Drafting and revising employee handbooks.
  • Representing both schools and teachers in employment discrimination cases before federal and state courts, the EEOC, and the NYS Human Rights Commission.
  • Advising and counseling on disciplinary matters.
  • Handling parent issues with teachers/faculty.
  • Communicating with law enforcement on investigations involving teachers.

Misconduct, Discrimination, and Title IX Attorneys

Our attorneys also have experience with discrimination and misconduct matters. Having assisted clients with public-school superintendent’s hearings and facing college/university disciplinary committees, our attorneys have a clear understanding of how these processes work and the quick timeframes they operate in. We also have experience with Title IX investigations/hearings.

Do I Need an Education Law Attorney?

The outcome of a school disciplinary hearing can have a dramatic effect on a student’s future. While these types of hearings are held in a manner similar to a court proceeding, they aren’t required to follow the rules of a traditional court proceeding. For one, students are not presumed innocent until proven guilty, and though many schools’ regulations provide for due process for the student, this does not always apply in practice.

School review boards are familiar with the disciplinary hearing process, and they often find themselves at an advantage to students and parents. More often than not, schools tend to dispense justice quickly in an effort to keep their reputations clean, oftentimes before the student even understands what is happening. Having a knowledgeable education attorney by your side will help you navigate the confusing hearing process and ensure that the student’s rights are upheld.

Students who are not facing disciplinary action but have an educational dispute with the school, such as academic progression issues or ADA issues, face similar disadvantages. Without the support of an education attorney, these students and their parents may be unable to mount a successful argument or, worse, may be obliged to accept the situation without even making a complaint.
