Darius

Darius wears his graduation gown and holds his high school diploma. He has his arm around DRM Attorney Amanda White

Darius was facing expulsion from his high school for a minor behavioral incident and was transferred to eLearning, where he received all of his instruction at home, in isolation, through a computer. DRM requested and represented Darius in a meeting at his school where for the first time, he was recognized as having a disability. Because of DRM’s representation, Darius was re-admitted and qualified to receive an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), which greatly improved his academic performance. Darius graduated last year and has applied to several colleges. Darius stated: “A lot of people don’t want to accept the fact that they have a disability or obstacle, but once you realize and accept that you do, you can get help and get over the obstacle.”
