Nov 29, 2018News

Regional law firm, Shatz, Schwartz and Fentin, P.C., serving clients throughout western New England and New York, as well as nationally and internationally, announced that Attorney Mark J. Esposito will address the topic of psychoeducational assessment and the rights of Massachusetts families of students with disabilities in a public presentation on Dec. 8.

Attorney Esposito along with Rachel Currie-Rubin, Ed.D., will present “Demystifying Psychoeducational Assessment and Massachusetts Special Education Laws” from 2–4 p.m. at Forbes Library, located at 20 West Street in Northampton. Currie-Rubin is the co-owner and education director at Learning Solutions for Learning Success in Florence.

“All parents want what’s best for their children, and an appropriate educational experience suited to their individual needs is a major piece of that,” said Attorney Esposito, who recently learned a Certificate in Special Education Advocacy from William & Mary Law School in Williamsburg, VA. “But the special education process can be difficult for families to navigate. We want to empower parents to ensure that their children receive the services to which they are legally entitled.”

A resident of Northampton, Attorney Esposito joined Shatz, Schwartz and Fentin in September 2017 and concentrates his practice in general, commercial, probate and trust litigation and employment law. He has counseled various public-sector labor unions and employees in collective bargaining, negotiations, arbitration and litigation, representing clients in state and federal court as well as before administrative agencies. Attorney Esposito is a graduate of Boston University School of Law (2008) and Williams College (2005).

Attorney Esposito maintains memberships in the Hampden and Hampshire County Bar Associations and Massachusetts Bar Association.
