Special Education

Special education law is an ever-changing field. As parents increasingly obtain legal representation, it has become imperative that school districts have knowledgeable attorneys familiar with this particularized area of law.

Tressler provides extensive special education experience stemming from years of representing Chicagoland public and charter schools in all facets of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. With an established background in representing schools in due process, mediation and ISBE and OCR state complaints, Tressler has the ability to address any special education legal matters that your school may face.

Tressler attorneys strive to support their clients in all of their needs. Whether you are seeking legal advice, support in developing and providing professional development, establishing trainings or writing procedural manuals, we are ready to help. Our attorneys understand the varying perspectives of each of our clients and have experience collaborating with urban, suburban and rural stakeholders. With a distinct focus on establishing strong client relationships and cost-effective advice in a prompt and  efficient manner, we provide proactive support to all of our clients in the special education realm.

Tressler attorneys are able to support you throughout the complexity of due process. From responding to the due process complaint, working collaboratively with District employees to assess potential liabilities, attending mediation, providing support during resolution sessions, drafting settlement agreements and successfully defending the District in ISBE administrative hearings, we can  help  you  navigate  the  process with ease.

In a world that is constantly evolving, it is important for school districts, charters and cooperatives to have access to attorneys who are aware of nuances and implications that statutory regulations may have on the day-to-day school performance.
