Reliability, Honesty, Results


HANS GILLINGER has extensive experience in representing students with disabilities with respect to their educational needs and in related civil rights litigation. He is stability and reliability for his clients.

Hans began advocating for the special education rights of children and young adults in 2003 while in law school. He started his legal career in parent practice. He has performed extensive legal research and analysis of the IDEA and implementing state and federal law. He regularly represented clients from IEP meetings to due process.

Uniquely, Hans also spent years representing school districts and SELPAs in special education matters. He comes from the prestigious defense firm Burke, Williams & Sorensen that has represented California public entities since 1927. Knowing how school districts and their counsel evaluate cases, the reasons justifying a higher settlement offer, and both the things that make school districts fight, as well as what promotes cooperation with parents by public agencies, enables Hans to obtain superior client outcomes.
