Keith H.S. PeckSince 1999: Legal Services for Families in Special Education law, usually free.
- Education Law
Mr. Peck has dedicated his practice to the representation of families under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and has worked on well-over 1000 cases on behalf of children with disabilities. His outstanding level of experience in IDEA law is irrebuttable.
Starting his career focus during law school, he worked for a firm that represented parents on special education matters. Shortly after graduating from law school in 1996, Mr. Peck started his legal career working for the Protection & Advocacy agency in Hawaii on cases that would promote systemic change for people with disabilities. In 1999, Mr. Peck founded his firm in Honolulu Hawai’i (now, LegalAction, a law corp.) focusing on representing families in special education matters, at no cost to them. He has been a national leader in the field ever since. Mr. Peck has been at the forefront of many important cases.
Among his many victories, Mr. Peck prevailed in Doug C., over the state Department of Education establishing a new bright-line rule for judging procedural compliance with the I.D.E.A. in the 9th Circuit. Co-counsel in Hawaii’s class action for special education rights and original lead counsel on Hawaii’s Olmstead action, he also participated in establishing a right to money damages under Section 504 in the 9th Circuit, in Natalie and Michelle H., et al v. Lemahieu, et al.
With a perspective on Talmudic thought (Tikkun olam) and history as well as social justice, Mr. Peck attended the New School for Social Research, Pratt Institute, School of Architecture (focus on community development), and Marquette University, Law School. He divides his time between Hawaii, California, Paris, and China.
