From our offices in Danbury, Connecticut, and Scarsdale, New York, we proudly serve children and their families in both states.

We Make Schools Follow The Law

Under the law, children with disabilities are guaranteed a free and appropriate public education (FAPE). Unfortunately, schools don’t always obey. That’s where The Law Offices of Gerry McMahon, LLC can help.

Our lead attorney, Gerry McMahon, strives to work collaboratively with schools to find solutions that serve children’s needs. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, foster parent or close relative, please contact us with your questions.

We Understand Your Frustration

Attorney Gerry McMahon knows what you are feeling. She faced similar challenges when she tried to obtain special-education services for her young daughter.

As a result of that experience (which had a happy ending), attorney McMahon was determined to help others who face similar obstacles. Today she takes great satisfaction in helping children and families create success stories of their own.
