With co-presenter Jennifer M. Lukach Bradley, Warner provided an overview of the federal statutes that require public schools to provide special education students with a variety of supports and services in schools and which afford more protections to special education students who violate school rules.

Warner practices primarily in the representation of Pennsylvania school districts and entities in matters of special education at both the administrative and appellate levels.

Think Lean Daily Message

"In the trial world, I see an array of subtle, unsubtle and utterly ingenious strategies being devised by other lawyers to deploy on each other. As we shall see, I call these external strategies. The common theme, among the best external strategies, is that they are bespoke to the circumstances. One size does not fit all. A provocation strategy may work masterfully in some situations and backfire horribly in others"
