Education Law

Legal advocacy for children who require special education – and their parents – is a longstanding and proud tradition at Murray Plumb & Murray. We have successfully assisted numerous clients in understanding the complex laws and regulations in the field of special education, including the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (“IDEA”), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”), Maine’s special education statutes and regulations, the Maine Human Rights Act and more.

We represent a spectrum of clients, including parents of children with disabilities who attend pre-school programs through Child Development Services; parents of children in the public schools under an IEP or Section 504 plan; parents of students who have been, or seek to be, placed in private schools or other facilities with public funding; and adult students with disabilities enrolled in secondary and post-secondary educational programs.
