Charles P. Fox
When Charles (“Charlie”) P. Fox set his sights on becoming a lawyer, he never envisioned that he would be concentrating his practice in special education law, supporting the needs and rights of children and young adults. But, as a veteran special education attorney, Fox has found his path with the beacon light of his son Cole, now 18+, guiding the way.
The “catalyst and defining principle” for Fox when he entered special needs law
was his then two-year-old son, who is diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy who needed an advocate. Now considered “my hero” by Cole, Fox works to assure that his son and other children with special needs receive an appropriate public education.
Fox debuted his blog (specialedlaw.blogs.com) in 2006, with this site covering a spectrum of issues facing special needs students and their families -- from personal commentary on failures of the system and latest research findings to humorous contributions by his wife, children’s book author Lori Miller Fox.
Fox has honed his writing skills through drafting of legal briefs, as an editor of the IIT Chicago Kent College Law Review and working as a judicial clerk for an Appellate Court Judge after law school for two years. He is a member of both the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois trial bar and of the bar for the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.
Charles Fox also is the former adjunct professor at DePaul University Law School, Special Education Law Clinic, which he opened in August 2008.
