Sandra L. Lascari, Esq.
Specialty: Special Education Law
Sandra L. Lascari represents parents of children with disabilities and relies on more than 25 years of experience in civil and criminal law to devise holistic, all-encompassing plans for each individual child, and fights for her clients’ rights in the courtroom when necessary.
“We believe that all children need to be successful and happy in school, and that will translate into being successful and happy in life,” she says. “My clients tell me they appreciate that I have a heart, but that I’m also willing to do what it takes to get the job done.”
A former Morris County assistant prosecutor, Lascari has written and lectured on special education law, and has served as an adjunct professor.
Her practice frequently helps families impacted by ADHD, autism, dyslexia, bullying and cerebral palsy.
Lascari was named one of New Jersey Law Journal’s “Top Women in Law” in 2016.
“Special education is a complicated area of law, so we’re here to act as an advisor for parents and an advocate for children to help them navigate the system and create successful outcomes,” she says.
“Nothing is more satisfying than when a parent calls to tell me their child is getting the services he or she needs, and thank me for helping them change their child’s life for the better.”
"She's an education attorney who skillfully got my child into the right program and had the district pay for his education." -W.H., Hoboken
"I called Sandra crying and feeling completely helpless after trying to advocate for my son at his school for years. She immediately assured me and told me that it sounded like we needed someone on our side. She met with my husband and I the next day and assured us and talked to us about our child's rights. For the first time, we felt justified and understood that our child deserved so much more than what the school was giving him. During the consultation, she was able to 'understand' our son and his needs better than the school system ever did. She came with us to the IEP meetings, took charge and was able to get us everything we needed for our son. She's confident and knowledgeable, yet very compassionate. If you need someone to strongly advocate for your child and get the school district to finally start respecting you and your child, Sandra Lascari is the attorney for you."-M.K., Jefferson
