Our firm provides experienced, practical and sophisticated representation in matters related to the educational and community access rights of individuals with special needs.
The Woodsmall Law Group is dedicated to maintaining a proactive, client-centered approach. Each matter receives individualized analysis and a unique case strategy, tailored to meet the client’s need.
We stress a balance of aggressive representation with the recognition that non-adversarial alternatives can preserve limited resources and many times, cultivate collaborative, long term results with school and regional center professionals.
We believe that each person, disabled or not, deserves dignity and respect and the chance to reach a meaningful, contributing place in society. We are committed to empowering families through education and knowledge.
