Do I need an attorney?

Maybe you do.  


Karen will consult and make recommendations based on the information you provide.


Things to consider:  


What stage is your disagreement with the school district at?


What are the stakes?   What is the desired outcome? 


Does the cost of an attorney outweigh the costs of funding services and supports on your own?
