How Was School Today?

The Law Offices of Eric G. Ransleben is committed to excellence in the Texas public school system for all school-age children. Founded in May of 1996, our office represents children in all public school placements. Mr. Ransleben represents students at all stages of the process; from the initial referral to special education or 504, to Due Process Hearings and appeals to Federal Court. The practice is limited to the State of Texas.

Easily 90% of parents of students with special needs choose to represent themselves in the educational process. There are several attorneys and non-attorney child advocates in Texas, and a host of support groups dealing with every type of identified learning disability. Whether you retain the services of a professional or not, please avail yourself of the vast information and support on the internet and in your local bookstore before going any further with your district's committee. There is a barrage of terminology associated with these programs. It is important to keep yourself versed in the general terminology and to understand the direction of your local district's special education department.
