We are a North Carolina law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of students, children with disabilities, and educators throughout North Carolina. Although we concentrate in education and educator employment law, we also provide lifespan planning for children and young adults with disabilities. Our goal is to educate parents so they can obtain the services and supports for their child to progress and be successful in every aspect of life. Depending on your child's individual needs, we can assist with early intervention services, education plans and school medical plans, school placement and transfer, funding for non-public schools, vocational services, Medicaid and Social Security benefits, guardianship and powers of attorney, and college accommodations. We look forward to partnering with you to ensure your child's academic, vocational, and financial well-being.
