Legal Services

In some situations, you may need legal services.  We are here for you.  Our firm, Sweet Marks Law Office LLC,  concentrates exclusively on special education law.

Unfortunately, for many reasons, school districts do not always provide the programs or services that your child needs to be successful.  Your child with special needs is entitled to a “free appropriate public education” which means your school district must meet your child’s needs in the most appropriate setting, either in a public or private school placement.

  • Our firm will help you understand your rights and options.
  • Our firm provides effective legal representation to ensure that children with disabilities receive the educational services they need to succeed in school.
  • Our firm pursues effective strategies to secure the positive outcomes you want for your child. 

Many disputes can be resolved without a hearing or trial.  Recognizing the importance of maintaining a working relationship between parents and schools and of avoiding unnecessary litigation, our firm will always try to resolve disputes by negotiating voluntary agreements and effective solutions to meet your child’s needs.  When litigation is needed, however, we will diligently represent parents and children before school districts and the Office of Administrative Law.

What our clients say about us

“Working with Linda has helped our family tremendously. It can be difficult as a parent to navigate a system that you don’t know or fully understand, learning as you go. From the first time Linda and I spoke I felt she was truly listening, understood what support our family needed and knew exactly how to help us. Linda is kind, respectful, professional, and tough where it is warranted. Her knowledge in her field is invaluable. She is hands down who you want advocating on your behalf.”
