The Law Office of Karen Dalglish Seal, founded in 2000, focuses on children with special education needs, juveniles who have discipline issues at school and young people entwined in the Juvenile Justice System. More often than not, these areas of law are related. Special Education law involves advocating for children who receive special education services in public schools or who require services but have not been identified. Advocacy includes attending ARD meetings, locating resources, finding the best placements, encouraging schools to allocate resources as mandated by federal law, filing due process hearing requests and filing federal lawsuits. Education law involves disability issues under Section 504 and discipline issues in the school setting while Juvenile law revolves around the court systems and can lead to punishments ranging from fines to placement at the Texas Youth Commission. This Law Office mainly serves the needs of children with special education needs and juveniles in school and in the juvenile justice system in San Antonio, Texas and South Central Texas.
