East Brunswick, NJ asked in Education Law for New Jersey

Q: I have an autistic 13 year grandson and my daughter may have to go to court against the school system.

The school system is not cooperating with giving what he needs. Her next step is mediation and if that doesn't do it, court is only option. She does have an education advocate helping her, but has low income and could not afford to go to court.

Is it possible to get a,pro bono atty to help?

A: Contact your local bar association, and autistic charitable associations. You need to retain an attorney. If you can't afford an attorney you need to contact legal services and the local law school legal clinics. Good luck.
