practice group

Students are confronted with a variety of academic and social issues requiring legal representation. KJK’s lawyers advocate for students of all ages as they navigate various challenges at school. We represent students at the beginning of their education in preschool through the end of their academic career. We handle matters for postgraduate students including law students, dental, nursing and medical students, as well as residents and others in post-doctoral programs. KJK takes a strategic approach to helping our clients resolve their problems. We work with students and parents to develop a strong defense to safeguard our clients’ academic future.

KJK’s special education practice consults with a cohort of professionals to address the holistic needs of our clients. We connect our clients with therapists, college consultants and private specialists to serve their unique needs.

The attorneys at KJK have a history of successfully fighting for students with special education needs.

We understand the challenges our clients face and utilize our in-depth knowledge of school systems and administrations to help our clients navigate protocols and obtain the appropriate special education outcomes.

We assist clients every step of the way – advising them on how to obtain an IEP or 504 plan, attending meetings with them, advocating on their behalf when litigation matters arise and representing them in other matters that special needs children face in schools. That includes, but is not limited to, bullying and disciplinary issues.

Our special education services also include evaluating placements and team reports, abuse and neglect in schools, discrimination – including the ADA and section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act – due process hearings and other disciplinary issues impacting students in school and in juvenile court.
