Representing Students and Families in Education Law
Children have a right to a free and quality education in the public school system. They also have other rights that must be fulfilled by their school district. At Pellegrino Law Firm, we are committed to protecting students' rights.
Our firm's New Haven education law attorneys represent and counsel families in issues involving school law and special education. We have sat on various education boards and boards for private high schools and colleges. Our understanding of how the other side works is effective in helping us protect families in education law.
