The attorneys at K&F recognize the rights of special needs children and their parents to receive the quality education to which they are legally entitled. We are committed to helping families enforce their legal rights to a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) through representation before local school departments and through actions before the Massachusetts Bureau of Special Education Appeals (BSEA) to resolve disputes between parents, schools, and state agencies on questions of eligibility, evaluation, placement, individualized education programs (IEPs), special education services, and procedural protections for students with disabilities. Representation in front of the BSEA maximizes your chances of achieving a positive result. Our firm is prepared to fully advocate on your child’s behalf, and will work with you to ensure that your child receives a quality education.
“I am a medical doctor who has worked with K&F on a number of cases. I am consistently impressed with the K&F team’s collaborative approach, with their individual commitment, and with their strong litigation skills.”
“My counsel at K&F was very patient and diligent. She was very thorough and detailed in explaining issues to me. She helped me explain my questions and understand the answers. I am glad K&F was on my side.”
“It all went very well. As soon as I met Attorney Koufman I felt very comfortable with the way he approached things. He definitely knows the law and he made it really easy and straightforward for me. I definitely recommend him to others because he is fair and honest. He’s a good guy.”
“Melissa Garand & Victor Koufman represented me in my civil rights action. They were always responsive to my requests and were very knowledgeable with respect to my civil rights. As a result, they helped me achieve a very favorable outcome with respect to my case. I highly recommend them to others whose civil rights were violated.”
“I was very happy with the results from Koufman & Frederick. Attorney Garand was very understanding and I was comfortable with her. Considering what I went through, it went really quickly; faster than I expected. There were no problems. Now everything is going great in my life.”
“I received a “Not Guilty” verdict. Everything was just fantastic. Attorney Koufman looked at every single thing. I am very happy about what he did. He’s a very good lawyer. He’s respectful. The jury was six women and one guy, and they liked him very much.”
“Koufman & Frederick retained me as an expert in a medical case. They effectively and thoroughly prepared for trial by, for instance, developing a good working knowledge of the content of my testimony. They also helped me determine the best manner by which I presented my expert testimony, and at trial, they were relaxed but very effective before the jury. “
