Rita Defilippis - I have a particular interest in special education. I graduated with a B.S. in Special Education from Cleveland State University and received my Juris Doctorate from Santa Clara University. Before coming to the Office of Clients’ Rights Advocacy, I had a private special education law practice for two years. I also worked for over 4 years as an educational advocate for Friends Outside in San Jose. In this position, I advocated for the special education rights of children of parents with a history of incarceration. I also served as the educational advocate on the Juvenile Treatment Court team. I enjoy my position as Clients’ Rights Advocate, which I have had since February, 2008, and look forward to serving the needs of San Andreas Regional Center Clients.
