FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE.
WAPPINGERS FALLS, NY — Stenger, Roberts, Davis & Diamond, LLP (SRDD Law) has announced the hiring of Lorraine M. McGrane. Lorraine will practice Special Education Law, Special Needs Planning and Guardianship as well as Family Law for the firm. Ms. McGrane will be the 14th attorney at the firm.
“I knew when I met Lorraine that she would be a perfect fit for our growing team. We have a strong clientele for special needs planning and education law. Her background is a good fit for where we want to go,” said Thomas R. Davis, the firm’s managing partner who heads the Special Education Law, Family Law and Personal Injury practice at the firm.
Lorraine earned her undergraduate degree at SUNY Empire State College in Saratoga Springs, NY and received her law degree from the Vermont Law School in 2006. She has worked on behalf of children with disabilities and families for the majority of her career. “When you have a child with disabilities, it can be very overwhelming to navigate both the school and legal systems to make sure they receive a free and appropriate public education. It has been a mission of mine to help families through the process and find solutions,” says Lorraine.
Lorraine previously practiced special education law, matrimonial and family law, government and commercial contract law, as well as advocated on behalf of people with disabilities. Lorraine has worked extensively to provide client-centered solutions.
Prior to law school, Lorraine worked with schools and communities on research-based strategies to increase protective factors against violence, substance abuse, and school dropout. Her work in the schools, as well as advocacy within her family, lead her to go to law school to advocate on behalf of children and parents for their educational rights.
