Special Education Law


Northern Illinois Special Education Law Attorneys

Every child has unique and individual needs. Due process, equal protection, and both state and federal special education law require that every student has access to an appropriate education. If your school district has failed to meet the educational needs of your child, we can help.

The law firm of Whitted, Takiff + Hansen, LLC, is available to represent parents and children the greater Chicago area, Cook County, Lake County, DuPage County, and the other collar counties, and throughout northern Illinois.

Our attorneys and advocates have decades of experience in special education law. We are committed to seeing that every student gets an appropriate education, regardless of your child’s strengths and weaknesses.

We represent parents of disabled students in any special education law matter. Whether your child is having a challenging time at school and you believe he or she may require special treatment or your child has an individual education plan (IEP) or section 504 plan that you feel is insufficient or has not been implemented, we can help. Our lawyers have the experience, ability and insight to help you get what is right for your child.

We will take the time to learn about your child. We will educate you about the options available. Our goal is to empower you with information. We will not only stand by your side, but also give you the tools you need to see that your child gets appropriate treatment as he or she makes their way through the education system.
