David German

Co-managing Partner

Over the past decade David German has established himself as one of the most effective, knowledgeable, and compassionate attorneys working for students with disabilities and their families.  He has successfully represented hundreds of families throughout California in special education due process cases.  David also works with families on cases where a student has been injured or abused, or which involve discrimination based on disability.

David is sensitive to the stress and uncertainty that many people feel when considering legal action against their child’s school.  He considers it an honor to guide families through the process of enforcing their children’s right to a safe, individualized, and meaningful education.  Although he is an unwavering advocate for the rights of his clients, David’s calm demeanor and collegial negotiation style help preserve positive relationships between families and school districts.

David has taught Education Law at UCLA School of Law and is a frequent presenter on special education law and litigation at continuing education programs for attorneys and educators.  He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania and his J.D., M.A., and Ph.D. from the University of Southern California.
