Practicing Education Law in Southern NJ on behalf of Students with Special Educational Needs

​Responsive, accessible, compassionate 

education attorney for New Jersey

students with special educational needs


   Since 2008,  I have practiced exclusively as an education lawyer representing families of students with special educational needs.  As both an attorney and the mother of a child with disabilities, I have extensive professional and personal experience with special education law, and know firsthand that trying to navigate the special education system alone can be overwhelming and emotionally challenging for families. 


   My first and foremost goal is to ensure that the educational rights of New Jersey students and their families are protected, and that each student receives an appropriate education that is individually tailored to meet her/his unique needs. 

 I am committed to providing assertive, cost-effective educational advocacy on behalf of students and their families, while simultaneously striving to maintain a positive and cooperative relationship with the child's school district and current educational placement whenever feasible.

    My South Jersey office, located in Cherry Hill off Exit 32 of I-295, provides special education advocacy to families residing throughout Southern New Jersey, including but not limited to Camden County, Burlington County, Gloucester County, Salem County, Atlantic County, Cape May County and Cumberland County.  

   My office is within easy driving distance of all cities and townships throughout  South Jersey, including Atlantic City, Audubon, Berlin, Blackwood, Bridgeton, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cherry Hill, Cinnaminson, Collingswood, Delran, Deptford, Egg Harbor, Evesham, Gibbsboro, Gloucester, Haddon Township, Haddon Heights, Haddonfield, Lumberton, Maple Shade, Marlton, Medford, Medford Lakes, Merchantville, Millville, Monroe, Moorestown, Mount Holly, Mount Laurel, Mullica Hill, Pennsauken, Pitman, Salem, Sewell, Sicklerville, Swedesboro, Turnersville, Vineland, Voorhees, Washington, Westampton, Westmont, West Deptford, Willingboro, Williamstown, Winslow,  and Woodbury.
