Jill Hornig graduated Magna Cum Laude from Pace University School of Law in 1992, where she was an editor of the Law Review, after earning a BA in English from Lehigh University. She has been admitted to practice in both New York and Connecticut since 1993. She originally worked as an insurance coverage attorney, focusing on environmental and products liability cases.
After taking several years off to raise her children, Attorney Hornig discovered the world of special education law when her oldest child was diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder in 2002. Since then, she has advocated for her children — three with various levels of need — and has worked with special education attorneys in New York and Connecticut, providing project assistance, autism expertise and critical support in numerous due process proceedings and mediations.
As the parent of several children with special needs, Attorney Hornig knows what it’s like to navigate the world of special education services and brings that unique perspective to each case.
