About Us is a service provided by Thurston Law Offices LLC. Our mission is to assure that all children, especially those with special needs, have access to a free and appropriate public education; that any services necessary to obtain that education are provided according to law; and to balance the power between schools and families.

The firm was founded in 2005 by Robert C. Thurston, Esq., who has nearly 30 years of experience as an attorney and special education advocate. He is also the parent of a child with Autism, which fuels his passion for special education law and children's rights. SchoolKidsLawyer was recently featured in South Jersey Spotlight.

Robert obtained his law degree from The Ohio State University College of Law and his undergraduate degree with honors from The University of Michigan. He is admitted to practice in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, as well as numerous other federal courts. He is also an active member of the Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates (COPAA), a group dedicated to advocating for special education rights.

Here is what clients have said about Mr. Thurston:

"Thank you so much for representing us through this entire elongated process. It has been such a pleasure working with you, you have given a voice to the voiceless [Child's Name]. It has been a long journey in securing the right educational settings and therapies for our son which could not have been done without your knowledge and assistance. We will never hesitate to refer you to families struggling with the same issues. You have gone above and beyond our expectations for a lawyer, you give the profession a good name. Words cannot express our gratitude."

Joyce and Erik S.
