Cedar Law is available to assist you in understanding your educational rights. We have gathered some of the resources we think are most valuable.

"After our daughter had been fully included in a general education classroom for the first three years of elementary school, the school district decided it would be easier to educate her in a secluded self-contained classroom based on her diagnosis of Down syndrome. I contacted Lara at Cedar Law to help us exercise our daughter’s rights to maintain her education amongst her peers with the accommodations she was entitled to.

Beyond her obvious knowledge of the school system and the IEP process, Lara was genuinely interested in achieving the best outcome for my daughter. My goal in seeking representation was to hire someone who would compassionately and intelligently work to achieve the best outcome for my daughter – not someone whose only interest was a win. Fortunately, we got both! Highly recommend Lara and would not hesitate to hire her trusted colleagues."
