Devon Rios
It’s nice to meet you!

I'm Devon Rios, an award-winning education rights attorney who's assisted countless families in navigating the IEP process. Beyond litigation, I've empowered parents in South and East Los Angeles to advocate for their children's education. Known as "the ride or die attorney" and "the parent whisperer," I prioritize keeping children at the forefront of discussions.

As a mom, I understand the emotions and challenges firsthand, having applied my strategies to my own family's IEP journey! I've developed Unspoken Rules: IEP Nuts & Bolts to empower parents and guardians everywhere in the IEP process.
