Jill graduated Magna Cum Laude from Pace University School of Law in 1992, where she was an editor of the Law Review, after earning a BA in English from Lehigh University. She has been admitted to practice in both New York and Connecticut since 1993. Jill originally worked as an insurance coverage attorney, focusing on environmental and products liability cases.
After taking several years off to raise her children, Jill discovered the world of special education law when her oldest child was diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder in 2002. Since that time, she has advocated for her own children (3 with various levels of need) and began using her talents to assist other special education attorneys. Jill has worked with numerous special education attorneys in both New York and Connecticut providing project assistance, autism expertise and critical support in countless due process proceedings and mediations.
As the parent of several children with special needs, Jill knows what it’s like to navigate the world of special education services and brings that unique perspective to each case.
