Ms. Arkontaky will focus on how parents can be effective advocates without being confrontational in order to negotiate in their child’s long-term best interests. If they disagree with the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) that is being proposed, how can they eliminate emotion in order to maintain a collegial relationship with the educators who are responsible for their child’s schooling?

Ms. Arkontaky’s practice focuses exclusively on special needs planning, special education advocacy, and guardianship for families of children with disabilities. She has a child with special needs and, prior to attending law school, was a service coordinator for Family Connection, an agency providing case management for families of children with disabilities. Her personal and professional experiences enable her to bring added insight to the work she does on behalf of others.

Littman Krooks LLP offers legal services in several areas of law, including special education advocacy, special needs planning, elder law, estate planning, veterans’ benefits, and corporate and securities. The firm’s offices are located at 399 Knollwood Road, White Plains, New York; 655 Third Avenue, New York, New York; and 300 Westage Business Center Drive, Fishkill, New York.
