Our philosophy is simple: Every child is entitled to have the opportunity to learn and be educated in an appropriate and effective educational setting. For almost 20 years, we have built a solid record of success, helping our families obtain and fund the highly individualized programming that their children require.
Hiring an attorney to represent your child is an essential yet stressful decision. A great deal is at stake, and your child is counting on you to make the right choices. We support our client families at every step of the process and provide the respect, compassion, and “out of the box” thinking that you and your family deserve.
As the premier special education law firm in the New York metropolitan area, we work as a team to ensure that your child’s legal rights are protected. Representation will look different for every family because each child has their own unique and individual needs.
Some families consult with our office to learn more about their child’s rights and entitlements. In other instances, families will want to explore school options or work with us to identify assessments or evaluations that may be warranted. Some families need assistance in working collaboratively with their school district to develop an appropriate IEP program. Other families may require a specialized school. Many of our families have children who require intensive dual programs that may involve a core school placement, coupled with layers of additional services and supports. Some students may need to transition from a day program to a quality residential placement and program.
In each and every instance, our highly experienced attorneys work closely with your family to provide the strategic and creative legal representation that is needed to support a positive outcome. Mayerson & Associates’ turnkey staffing structure also ensures that once a settlement is reached or a case is won, the reimbursement process is immediately underway.
A client family team at Mayerson & Associates includes Gary Mayerson and Maria McGinley, a primary attorney who will be your main point of contact to represent you, a team of paralegals, our office manager, and our reimbursement specialist. The collaborative approach that we employ ensures that every client receives the highest level of personal attention at every stage of the process.
