David M. Grey, Esq. is a partner with the law firm of Grey & Grey in Santa Monica.  David is an experienced special education attorney who has successfully handled a lot of due process hearings and appeals in state and federal court.  He has experience with a broad range of special education matters. A significant number of his cases involve people who are deaf or hard-of-hearing or those in danger of being seriously hurt if not properly served by the school. David has a growing interest in using civil rights laws to obtain injunctive relief and damages beyond what is provided for under IDEA. He has recovered more than 1.5 million dollars from schools that have violated the civil rights of students with disabilities to an education.

Prior to his special education practice, David focused on employment and real estate disputes, where he had many jury trials, arbitrations and administrative hearings.  He is a cum laude graduate of Fairleigh Dickinson University and received his law degree from Hofstra University in New York. David has lectured and written extensively on a variety of legal topics. Most recently he was successful in convincing the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to reverse summary judgment against two of his clients in K.M. ex rel. Bright v. Tustin Unified School Dist, 725 F.3d 1088 (9th Cir. 2013)(cert. denied). The Ninth Circuit made clear that compliance with IDEA does not foreclose rights available under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
