Visit our new A&G "Shoe of the Month" Blog! Articles will be posted every month regarding a variety of topics related to special education.

What is the Shoe of the Month Blog?
The Shoe of the Month Blog is A&G’s discussion of areas we encounter in our practice and which we see as important to special education and civil rights for people with disabilities. While it will feature a shoe each month, it is not about shoes (not that such a blog would not be a worthwhile endeavor). So check us out regularly at our website at to read the latest. Or find us on Facebook at Agins & Gilman LLC.
