Roberta S. Savage

Law Office of Roberta S. Savage
Attorney
Davis, CA, USA


While working as a behavior analyst, Ms. Savage frequently witnessed parents being overwhelmed and short-changed by the IEP process.  Parents were having difficulties obtaining an appropriate education for their special needs child.  There were severe inconsistencies in the information provided to parents concerning their rights, the rights of their child, and service options available to meet the educational needs of their child.

Ms. Savage saw a need to help and support parents with children in a failing education program.  She has dedicated her career to representing children with disabilities. As a special education attorney, Ms. Savage represents children with disabilities and their parents in program disputes with local education agencies.  The goal of her work is to help parents navigate through the process of obtaining a free appropriate public education for their special needs children.
