Shaw Firm
Justice Begins Here

California special education attorney Daniel Shaw

Creating a voice for the voiceless. 

We are lawyers fighting for people, pursuing justice, and making communities safer throughout the entire state of California.

OUR GOAL IS TO ENSURE THAT YOUR CHILD GETS AN APPROPRIATE EDUCATION

The Shaw Firm is dedicated to representing children and their families in special education matters ranging for IEP meetings to Federal Court Appeals.  We fight so special education children can receive the appropriate supports and services they are entitled to.  We believe in the importance of a good public education for all children regardless of their disability. 

YOUR CHILD AND FAMILY DESERVE THE BEST LAWYERS

We are experts in navigating the complex and confusing process of special education.  We can help make sense of the IEP process by helping interpret test results, identifying areas of need, developing accurate present levels of performance, developing measurable goals, and identifying appropriate supports and services. 

WE ARE COMMITTED TO PROVIDING AFFORDABLE LEGAL SERVICES TO OUR FAMILIES

All initial consultations are at no cost to the family.  We hand pick only a small amount of cases each year.  At the Shaw Firm we only take cases we believe we can win.  Due process can be a stressful and draining on a family.  It is our job to alleviate that stress by ensuring we have prepared a case for success. 

WE ARE EXPERTS AT DUE PROCESS

We understand what it takes to file a successful due process complaint and win.  We have a great record winning at due process.  Though we always hope to resolve a case without the need for due process, we are always prepared to go to hearing and know exactly what it takes to win. 

WE ARE EXPERTS AT REPRESENTING SPECIAL EDUCATION STUDENTS ACCUSED OF CRIMES

Very few attorneys are experts at special education law.  Even fewer have the expertise to navigate the complex laws that impact special education students when they are arrested.  Children with special needs are disproportionately arrested because of behavior directly related to their disabilities.  We have extensive experience representing children and their families in these situations.  

Get in touch

At the Shaw Firm we know that finding the right attorney to represent you is a choice not to be taken lightly. That’s why we offer free initial consultations to walk you through your needs and discuss your goals.
