Every child has the right to a free and appropriate public education (FAPE). Unfortunately for children with disabilities this can be very challenging, and at times, out of reach. If a child does not receive the environment necessary to flourish in the classroom, they are automatically at a disadvantage. Whether your son or daughter has a disability or is facing disciplinary action, an experienced education lawyer can make sure the system is working for you, not against you. At the law offices of Stenger, Roberts, Davis and Diamond, we protect the rights of students throughout the Hudson valley area.
With a diverse education law practice, our attorneys represent students and their families throughout the entire process, if needed. SRDD Law advocates for your child to ensure he/she receives an appropriate education in a healthy and safe environment.
