Littman Krooks Strengthens Position in the Special Education Community
White Plains, NY (Law Firm Newswire) January 7, 2013 – Littman Krooks LLP continues to enhance their strong reputation in the special education community through new initiatives in 2013.
The experienced, fast-growing team of special needs planning and special education attorneys and advocates is now uniquely positioned to better accommodate the needs of their clients.
The firm has hired Giulia Frasca, an experienced special education attorney. Ms. Frasca works with children with special needs and their parents to obtain a free and appropriate public education from their school district. She also handles other special needs matters such as guardianships, and wills and trusts. Giulia is admitted to the bar in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. She is fluent in Italian.
“We are tremendously excited to have Giulia join us. Her knowledge, experience, and person centered approach complements our expert team and will allow us to serve an even greater number of families in need,” said Sheryl Frishman, of counsel to the firm.
Littman Krooks will now handle school disciplinary matters in addition to special education advocacy, special education due process, special education private school reimbursement, Section 504 accommodation advocacy, transition planning, and SAT/ACT test accommodation advocacy. Littman Krooks only represents students and their families and does not represent school districts.
This dedicated special education legal team is the largest and most experienced one in the Hudson Valley. In addition to Ms. Frasca, it includes attorneys Bernard A. Krooks, Sheryl Frishman and Marion Walsh, as well as advocates Nanette Saturn and Nicole Garcia. Along with Westchester and the Hudson Valley, the team handles cases in every borough of New York City and Connecticut.
Littman Krooks maintains a strong reputation in the disability community due to continued client referrals and their ability to empower families through education and knowledge. The firm uses a proactive client-centered and person-centered approach that allows for tailored representation to our clients’ unique needs.
