Warshaw Law Firm, LLC
Julie Warshaw, Esq.
Specialty: Special Education Law
Julie Warshaw is dedicated to ensuring that children with disabilities have access to and derive benefit from a free and appropriate public education (FAPE). Practicing since 1993, Warshaw helps kids with autism, dyslexia, learning disabilities, cognitive impairments, language deficits, allergies, medical conditions, school phobia, and other special needs to obtain an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or 504 Plan with the appropriate educational placement, services and accommodations to meet each child’s unique needs.
EASING PARENTS’ ANXIETIES
“When a child thrives in a learning environment, you know you did the right thing for that child,” she says. A mom herself, Warshaw has close family members with learning disabilities and understands how important it is for parents to be able to reach her directly with questions and concerns. “New clients are pleasantly surprised to find that I always answer my own phone,” she says. “I develop relationships with my clients and I enjoy when they update me on their progress. It’s so rewarding to watch them succeed.” An experienced mediator, litigator, and collaboratively-trained attorney, Warshaw represents children who have been victims of discrimination and institutional abuse, harassment, intimidation, bullying, cyberbullying and retaliation, as well as children and young adults with disabilities in the criminal justice system. Her practice areas also include guardianships, collaborative divorce, family law, mediation and corporate and civil litigation.
EXPERIENCE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
A member of the New Jersey Special Education Practitioner’s Group, New Jersey Bar Association School Law Committee, the Essex County Bar Association Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and other professional organizations, Warshaw is a frequent guest speaker and consultant on special education matters and anti-bullying cases. Passionate about American Sign Language (ASL), she was instrumental in Bill S1760’s Legislative process by building awareness for the need to have ASL recognized as a world language in New Jersey, and for high school students to receive credit toward graduation requirements. It became law in 2015.

Both times she was able to resolve our dispute successfully while keeping us well informed. She was very understanding to our concerns and responsive to us.” – -D.C., Boxborough
