Aimée LeBlanc, an associate at the firm, counsels school districts in a variety of school law matters, with an emphasis on student and special education matters. Aimée regularly advises clients on issues regarding Section 504, IDEA, residency, and discipline matters, as well as special education issues involving IEP meetings, placement disputes, and due process proceedings 

Prior to joining the firm, Aimee spent more than twenty years working in Illinois public elementary education districts as an administrator in the area of student services, holding a variety of roles such as coordinator, State-Approved Director of Special Education, and Assistant Superintendent for Student Services. Aimée blends her former experience as an educator and administrator with her legal knowledge when working with clients.
