SCHOOL EXPULSION CLIENT

“I highly recommend Nafiz Ahmed. My child is a special ed student qualifying for special accommodations via an Individual Education Plan (IEP). My child recently had an incident that could have resulted in expulsion from high school. Because of the special ed status, the school district was required to conduct a Manifestation Determination Hearing before expulsion could be considered as a possible consequence. I was given little information by the school and/or district office about the upcoming meetings and hearings. After conducting some research on the internet to understand what the upcoming events were, our role and rights and the potential implications of the outcome, I quickly realized I needed legal help. Now, with less than a week, I needed to find a competent lawyer that was willing to take on my case with very little time to prep, whose schedule would accommodate the school hearing with short notice and that I could afford. I thought I was doomed. Well, I found Nafiz. I got all the information I had to him on Friday and the hearing was the following Monday afternoon. Nafiz was well prepared; we even had time to consult before the hearing began. Oh… and did I mention that I didn’t have to take out a 2nd mortgage on my home for his representation. By Friday, the school district had gotten back to Nafiz to let him know that they were going to drop the expulsions proceedings and had found placement within the district at a comprehensive high school that could better accommodate for my child’s special needs while allowing to my child to enroll in 5 mainstream classes and only 1 special ed class. We are not out of the woods yet…Due to the nature of the incident, my child may face criminal charges (even though the school district did not pursue). If this comes to fruition, I will have Nafiz represent my child. Nafiz has experience with juvenile criminal law and has already laid the ground work to win! Thank you Nafiz”
