Special Education

Special Education Attorneys

Meldie Moore, the founder and director of Moore Law for Children, is a mother with two children with special education needs. So, she understands the parents’ point of view. Joanna Gonzalez-Konetzke is a former special education teacher and administrator, and has experienced the benefits of early intervention with her own child. And it is with this personal and professional experience we came to choose this area of law to practice, special education law, because it is our passion. Our style is both gentle and strong. We are interested in using our voice, the power of reason and persuasion. But, if reason fails, we are willing and highly qualified to engage the legal system in defense of your child.

Our Mission Is Threefold: Simplify, Strategize, Succeed

We have experienced the anxiety that comes with detection of a problem with a child, whether diagnosed or unidentified… Autism, ADD/ADHD, hearing impairments, visual impairments, mental retardation, traumatic brain injury, physical disabilities, speech and language impairment, emotional disturbance, learning disabilities. We know how intimidating and complicated the process is, whether you are facing it for the first time, or still struggling with the school district after years. We remember how confusing all the unfamiliar terms and lingo can be: 504, IDEA, FAPE, IEP, Least Restrictive Environment, Due Process…. we understand your frustration and your fear.
With this in mind, our first goal is to simplify things for you. We do this by listening to your concerns, answering your questions, and explaining the process to you.
The second goal is to strategize. We will identify the problems and legal issues, and we will work together with you to find the solutions. We will educate you, and empower you to be a voice for your child. And through collaboration, together we will present a strong and united team advocating for your child. We can guide you as you negotiate the process yourself, or we can negotiate with the school district for you. It is your decision.
We believe every child is entitled to a free and appropriate education, without the headache and the heartache that brought you here looking for us. Let us simplify the process, be your special education legal advocate, and protect your child’s right to an education, so you can focus your energy on parenting. That is how we define success.
This is our passion – our promise to you.
