Sherif Moussa, Founding Member and Counsel
After a successful career in complex commercial litigation as well as securities and consumer class action cases resulting in cumulative settlements in excess of $1 billion dollars, Sherif made his initial foray into government work by spending over two years working for the New York City Department of Education Office of General Counsel as an Agency Attorney. After these two plus years of negotiating, litigating, and generally resolving cases filed by parents under the IDEA, and becoming a first time parent himself, he returned to private practice where he worked at two separate law firms to put his skills to use in advocating for families with children with special needs.
Sherif’s practice focuses on all aspects of litigating cases and he particularly enjoys legal writing, research, and most of all, representing families at hearings.
