Pennsylvania Education Law Attorneys

A disabled child has the right to a free and appropriate public education under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). An appropriate education is vital to meeting the needs of a disabled child and allowing them to meet their potential.

Over the last several decades, schools and school districts alike have come to recognize that there is no such thing as a “typical” child and that all types of children face differing education-related problems. As a result, they are now becoming increasingly obligated to provide specialized services for children.

When you feel that your child is not receiving his or her full education as guaranteed by law, answers can seem almost impossible to find. Education law and local school board policies can read like a foreign language, and knowledgeable, caring assistance from school staff can be hard to find.

At Murphy & Murphy, P.C., we understand your frustration. As parents of children with special needs, our attorneys are dedicated to providing legal services for all children, especially those with learning disabilities. We know how to identify and achieve your child’s full education rights.

Child Advocates Fighting For The Full Education Rights Of All Children

Our lawyers are fully experienced and knowledgeable in the areas of special education law as well as Pennsylvania school policies and procedures. We fully understand the challenges that children with special needs face and will meet with you to determine your child’s full range of challenges, the services he or she has been receiving, and the full range of services he or she should be receiving.

Common legal issues that our attorneys provide assistance with include:

  • Inadequate educational services for children with physical disabilities, autism, learning disabilities and other challenges
  • Failure to provide education service under IDEA and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Development of a 504 plan and individualized education plan (IEP)
  • Improper discipline for children, including expulsion

Our lawyers will fight to compel your child’s school to provide the full and comprehensive services he or she needs. We will also attend all due process hearings, including disciplinary and expulsion hearings. Please note that we can also protect your child’s rights in juvenile court.
