Attorney Michelle Moor will present an IEP Workshop designed to help parents and guardians understand the “basics” of an IEP (i.e., what goes where and why), advocate effectively within the school team process to develop a meaningful IEP for a child; and avoid some common mistakes.
Michelle Moor is a graduate of Vassar College and Northeastern University School of Law. Attorney Moor’s practice is devoted entirely to working with families to ensure that students in Massachusetts receive the educational services to which they are entitled. She routinely consults with families about educational and civil rights matters, represents families during negotiations with school districts, as well as at disciplinary and manifestation hearings, hearings before the Bureau of Special Education Appeals, and in state and federal court. Attorney Moor has been named as a Rising Star among attorneys in New England by Super Lawyers in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014. She is a member of the Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates (COPAA), the Special Needs Advocacy Network (SPAN), and the Massachusetts Bar Association.
