In this episode I interview two fantastic attorneys whom I’ve known for several years about special education law. Joyce Berkowitz has a practice representing parents, and Dave Oakes works for the Harris Beach Law Firm and represents school districts. Our lively discussion centers on what school administrators need to know about special education law. We get into mistakes to avoid, how to stay current on changes to special education law - if that’s even possible, when to call the attorneys, what to expect when the attorneys show up, and where the focus of all this work rightfully should be - on children. Joyce and Dave also share insights about their own personal productivity and setting priorities.
To reach Joyce you can Google her name (Joyce B. Berkowitz) or call her at (585) 421-9094. You can learn more about Dave and his work at Harris Beach’s website (www.harrisbeach.com). Enjoy this interview with Joyce Berkowitz and Dave Oakes.
