About Matthew Storey In His Own Words...
"I became a special education attorney because I saw firsthand the struggles my family went through navigating the education system. When you know something is wrong, it can be daunting and sometimes feel impossible to make the necessary changes to provide our children with an appropriate education. This can feel even more so when up against a school with unlimited resources.
My goal has always been to put parents on equal footing with schools and provide effective representation. To that end, we have experience from due process, to the federal district court, and have argued before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
We also believe that understanding your rights, and how special education works is a priority and spend a significant amount of time providing free trainings to the community. I have also had the pleasure of teaching at the special education program at USD School of Law, and the graduate program for school psychology at Brandman University.
I received my B.A. in Political Science and International Relations from the University of California at San Diego and Juris Doctorate from Thomas Jefferson School of Law. Prior to that I served in United States Air Force. I live in San Diego with my wife Alina, and two boys Lucas and Logan.
