Special Education Legal Services

Not sure where to start?

We understand.
You’ve tried working with the school, but nothing moves forward for your child. You’re tired of waiting and you’re ready for help.

We understand your issues because our lawyers are dedicated to and focused on representing families in special needs and special education matters.

Special needs law is all we do. We don’t do employment or business or family law (or any other type of law for that matter). 

We’re here to answer your questions and make sure we find an approach that’s right for you and your family.

✩✩✩✩✩ C. L., Client from the Greater Houston Area
“Working with Shields Law Firm completely turned our experience with public school around. They gave us the tools we needed to advocate for our son, and helped us navigate the sometimes treacherous school system. We needed someone who would listen and know appropriate and ethical ways to respond to finally get the help we needed. We’ll forever be grateful for this firm.” 

Initial Call
The next step is to speak with a lawyer at our office about your situation. This is a free call. You can call our office directly at 832-422-7333 or reach out to us online by submitting a Talk to a Lawyer request.

Special Education Consultation
If you would like us to take a more in-depth look at your matter, you can also schedule a consultation with us.

M.K., Client from South Texas
“We could not have gotten the results we sought without Kevin and Jennifer. They were detailed and thorough and made sure that we understood the process every step of the way. We are so grateful for what they accomplished on our daughter’s behalf. Thank you!”

Regardless of your situation, moving forward, you will know your rights and your options.

Before any lawyer can competently advise you on solving your problem, they must take the time to understand your situation and individual goals. Solutions can be anything from preparing you for an IEP meeting, or your case may require litigation or filing a complaint. That said, individuals looking for quick, one-size-fits-all results are not a good fit for what we do. We are proud to have built fantastic relationships with clients who see long-term value in focused, high-quality work.

Representation Options
If there is a good fit between you and our law firm, we will explain representation options for you to consider.

We will work with you to choose the approach and representation option that fits your family best. Depending on your needs, we offer full representation through flat-fee limited scope work and legal coaching to to special education litigation.
