Developmental Disability Agencies

As general counsel to some of the largest operators of residential facilities and other programs for developmentally disabled individuals in New York State, we handle all aspects of our clients’ unique legal needs.  We have extensive experience in dealing with the regulatory requirements of the New York State Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD), including group home site selection hearings, New York State Justice Center reporting and regulatory compliance issues. We also advises these clients on matters related to the individuals with disabilities they serve and the larger community of individuals with developmental disabilities and other mental health issues.  This specialized area of practice grew as a natural extension of our education law and special education practice, since the agencies we represent serve the adult community of individuals our school clients serve as students.
