Seattle Disciplinary Matters Special Needs Lawyer
Public and private school disciplinary actions interrupt your child's education, cause social anxiety, and seriously disrupt developmental progress. When you and your family encounter a disciplinary matter, especially involving a disabled or special needs child, it is important to know your rights and options. At Bourgette Law, P.L.L.C., we are experienced in challenging school disciplinary actions, including those imposed against special needs children.
Strategic Advocacy to Protect Your Child's Rights and Interests
We have experience representing children and students with special needs or a disability who are facing disciplinary action by a public or private school. We will initiate an immediate investigation to collect and preserve all relevant evidence in your case, including witness statements, documents, and any physical evidence. Our goal is to ensure you and your child are treated with dignity and sensitivity during the disciplinary process.
We are experienced in student rights and disciplinary matters involving:

- Unfounded disciplinary action arising out of a disability or special need
- Improper discipline based on the child's medical circumstances
- Removal of the disciplinary action from the child's record
- Legal action involving civil rights and discrimination
- Issues involving children who speak English as a Second Language (ESL)
