Getting a license to practice law in California is unfortunately far too easily accomplished and consumers are all too frequently victimized by incompetent and unethical attorneys. In a profession not known to begin with for it's ethics, the downturn in the industry has sadly even dropped the bar lower for many attorneys. Many attorneys, in order to deal with their own economic hardships, expand their practices into areas that they are not qualified in. Many attorneys, in order to deal with their own economic hardships, compromise the representation of their clients in ways that cause the clients to incur fees for no reasons. Atytorneys with unsophisticated clients may victimize their clients for many years and may in fact never be exposed for the harm they cause to their clients and even those unfortunate enough to be on the opposite side of a case with an incompetent attorney. I have witnessed countless times consumers go to an attorney for protection of a certain type, pay the attorney for services, and be worse off than had they not sought the help of an attorney at all. I see this in family law wherein there is massive incompetency in the field and I also see this in real estate where many attorneys rely on their client's naivety to run up bills that in many cases leave their clients in a worse position than had the services not been provided. There is no decision to be made more carefully in a legal matter than the choice of counsel. If a client has doubts about their attorneys' competency, they should take these doubts seriously and investigate them with other counsel. Sadly, even when an attorney is confronted with mistakes they have made which have harmed their client or others, it is highly unusual for them to ackowledge their error and fix it.
At the Law Offices of Marc Grossman, I am protecting the reputation handed down to me of four generations of Grossmans in the Inland Empire and know that there is nothing more important that I will leave for my children. The core of who we are is "Smart" and "Honest" lawyers which seems to be a rare commomdity now days.
An IEP is designed to meet your chld’s unique needs. But in order to do that, the most important thing is for a parent to participate. Without the parent’s participation, the child’s needs will not be understood as well. Only the parent has a special expertise as to their own child’s needs, interests, strengths and weaknesses. The entire IEP team will benefit by bringing this experience to the table. Also, knowledge about these particularities is not something that is generally able to be documented in school records which may be passed from teacher to teacher or school to school.
The United States Congress found it so important for a parent to participate in this process that the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (“IDEA”) gurantees parents equal participation in their child’s IEP. Your right to shape and foster your child’s continued growth through the IEP process is protected by law and can be one of the most important aspects of your child’s education.
By participating in your child’s IEP, you greatly increase the probability that his particular needs will be met. As a n equal participant, you are able to best identify and address those needs for the betterment of the whole IEP team. Without your involvement, will the IEP team be able to meet your child’s needs or identify mistakes being made? Your involvement is critical to the success of the IEP and will help you build relationships with other team members.
Your participation in your child’s IEP may start at any time and should be a positive experience helping your child grow to his full potential. By participating in the establishment of goals, programs and services for your chld, you maximize their chances at success.

Victorville, CA. -
A Victorville Jury, yesterday, awarded $241,000 damages for a First Grader who was molested by other children in the Victor Valley School District at Del Rey Elementary School in 2005. The Plaintiff alleged that the school district failed to protect him and was negligent in responding to the escalating pattern of bullying he had been subjected to. Attorneys for the victim questioned whether the District spent more upon its defense for over five years, than it will ultimately pay in damages. “How can they do that?” asked attorney Marc Grossman, “when they’re laying off teachers and complaining about limited budgets” He proceeded “it seems like they wasted hundreds of thousands of tax payer dollars accusing the victim instead of simply taking accountability for their actions. Trial attorney for the plaintiff, Brian Hannemann noted that “the school district actually asked the jury to find the 6 year old victim negligent for entering the older children’s restroom.”
Calling further into question the school district’s decision to spend so many years and so much money denying accountability is that Del Rey Elementary School teacher Rogelio Cardenas plead no contest in 2007 to the continuous sexual abuse of a child. This prompted 45 different complaints from Del Rey parents about the safety problems with Del Rey Elementary school. The school district has recently settled a string of lawsuits brought by some of the victims of Cardenas in connection with lawsuits alleging neglect by the Del Rey principal and administration. Grossman, who also represented several of those victims, noted that in those matters as well, the district spent excessive amounts of money denying any responsibility before finally making an offer to settle with the molestation victims right before trial.

The whole district is rotten to the core. The Del Rey Principal was more interested in selling her Mary Kay cosmetics to the employees at the school rather than looking out for the kids. That principal has been implicated in another lawsuit, where a first grader was abused by other students, even after the parents complained and nothing was done to protect the boy. Thank goodness that Marc Grossman stands up for the victims of this abuse and is willing to go after the real source of the problems. Shame on the district for ignoring the kids, then hen caught, blaming the boy and his parents. The whole corrupt bunch needs to be fired.
