Amy T. Brooks Presents at 2019 PSBA School Law Workshop

October 16, 2019

Amy T. Brooks

On Wednesday, October 16 in Hershey, PA, Amy T. Brooks presented at the 2019 Pennsylvania School Board Association (PSBA) School Law Workshop on Strategies for Containing Special Education Attorney Fee Claims.

Attorney fee awards are a huge and growing component of the skyrocketing cost of litigating special education disputes under the IDEA, and many parent attorneys have become adept at circumventing mechanisms in the law intended to prevent needlessly protracted proceedings. Hear veteran special education attorneys discuss trends in settlement demands and share other ideas and strategies for using existing mechanisms more effectively to containing attorney fee costs.
