California special education lawyer Eve Lopez is the mother of a child with special needs and has been successful in obtaining a variety of services for her child both with the school district and with Regional Center. She prides herself on helping her clients obtain the services they need and deserve.

Our firm can provide assistance with all facets of special education law cases involving the school district and regarding the Lanterman Act as it relates to securing services from Regional Center.

1) Educational rights with the school district

Ms. Lopez can assist with your requests for services from the school district on behalf of your child and handle the due process hearing once a dispute has arisen in the Individual Educational Plan (IEP) process. Please note in special education rights cases, once due process has been requested, the school district - not the family - is often obligated to pay attorney's fees.

2) Regional Center cases

Ms. Lopez is a dedicated child advocate who can also assist families with their efforts to acquire services from the Regional Center under the Lanterman Act. While it can prove difficult to secure some of these services, they are invaluable to your child and worth pursuing. While we are among the few firms that handle Regional Center Cases, our clients should be aware that these are private-pay cases as Lanterman Act does not provide for the payment of attorneys fees.

Whatever diagnosis your child has, we are here to help. Contact our Los Angeles County special education law attorney to schedule a free phone consultation.
