Special Education M.A.P. is a Virtual Law Office serving Connecticut parents.

Welcome! Special Education M.A.P. is a Connecticut law firm dedicated to the exclusive representation of parents of children with disabilities. If you're looking for answers to your legal questions concerning your child's rights to a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) under federal and state education laws, you've come to the right place.

Value-Based Billing for Educational Legal Services

Value-based billing means you pay a flat fee for specific legal services that you select at the outset of representation. Unlike the traditional law firm method of collecting a large retainer payment upfront and then billing the client at an hourly rate, Special Education M.A.P. offers tiered levels of service and lets the client decide which package is best suited to meet her needs. With value-based billing, there is no need to worry about whether a phone call to your lawyer will push you over-budget at the end of the month. You pay a single fee, and you know what to expect when your case is completed.
