Piper Paul, Attorney
Attorney Piper Paul takes a hands-on approach and relies on families to be part of the team to reach a just resolution for pending matters. She is admitted to practice in both Connecticut and New York state courts, as well as federal courts, and she has extensive legal experience in representing students with and without disabilities at both the secondary and post-secondary levels.
In 2009, Attorney Paul received a Pro Bono Award from the Connecticut Bar Association for her work on expulsion and disciplinary hearings. Attorney Paul focuses her advocacy efforts on protecting the legal and civil rights of adults and children who have disabilities, including medical issues such as diabetes, narcolepsy, and mental health disabilities. She is a member of the Amicus Committee of the Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates (“COPAA”), which is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to protecting civil rights and securing excellence in education on behalf of children with disabilities.
Attorney Paul is able to connect with her clients’ interests because, as a parent, she understands firsthand the desire to provide children with the best foot forward in life. She completed her legal education at Brooklyn Law School and went to work as an Assistant District Attorney with the Queens District Attorney’s Office in New York. After taking time to parent her children, Attorney Paul launched her own firm where she practiced education, disability, family, and criminal law. Now primarily focused on education-related matters, Attorney Paul spends her days advocating for those who need it most. Whether she’s filing appeals for accommodations in standardized testing for persons with disabilities or representing a student in a disciplinary hearing, is dedicated and works passionately for your family’s needs.
